Can I sue for malpractice?
In 2009, I went to emergency room with a loss of “cognitive dissonance.”
Within five hours preceding this, I had eaten a large amount of soda and fast food.
At the emergency room, they tested my blood sugar to see if I was diabetic, and my blood sugar was under 4mM, which is considered hypoglycemia, which I found weird considered I had eaten a lot of sugar.
This was the not first blood sugar test I’d had, and previous ones had also shown my blood sugar low.
They did not give me glucose/dextrose. They prescribed me with Ativan and Cellexa and sent me to a psychriatrist.
At the psychitrist, I was in my right mind again, and told them I only get anxiety and such after eating. I told them I thought there was something wrong with my digestive system.
They told me that was not possible.
I asked two other doctors as well to send me to a digestive specialist, but they told me I was mentally ill.
The psychiatrist prescribed me Olanzapine and Mirtazapine and told me I was bipolar.
I told them I still couldn’t eat, and they told me I was lying, because both Olanzapine and Mirtazapine make you hungry.
I told her eating just meat made me feel better. She said that was impossible.
I was referred to a bipolar specialist, and I told her the same thing, that I only had anxiety after eating.
Three years later in 2012, I found out I was missing something in my intestines that converts fructose into glucose, and that is why I got sick when I ate, and also why my blood sugar was always low.
The treatment was to go on a strict diet.
On this diet, I am fine.
I told 4 doctors to send me to a digestive specialist, and all 4 told me I was crazy.
Can I sue?
My jurisdiction is Ontario, Canada.
