Hi, does anyone know any good books, articles etc to read on diagnostic overshadowing? For those that aren't sure - my understanding of this is that it is when the medical people providing your care don't take physical illness or problems seriously or think they are part of your mental illness.
I am doing some research for a piece I am writing.
I experienced this quite a lot when I was in hospital with PPP. At one point I got violently sick and was vomiting and ill for a few hours. The nurse said it was probably due to my PPP. But then a few other of the patients and staff got sick so it must have been a bug or food poisoning.
Anyone else experience anything like this?
