I am Kitt and welcome to our forum.
Differential Diagnosis means all the other illnesses that must be ruled out before a Dx of an illness may be made. It is just as much of the diagnosis as meeting the criteria is and cannot be ignored.
If your pdoc is leaning toward a new diagnosis then hopefully he will be able to treat you and help make you feel comfortable out in the world. Bless you and stay with us.
