I wish i would have seen this sooner.. I missed it! Oh well, let me guess... Dr. Oz wants us to deal with this with vitamins and herbs? Nothing wrong with that but I have tried everything and a little help from the pharmacy is sometimes needed.

Thanks for the tip but I missed it too. Perhaps it can be found online.

To bad you missed it. It was exellent. There were specialists on the show and they talked about how miss diagnosed people are. It showed the proper testing for it. There was one lady on there that was told for years she had ashma and sinus trouble and she kept getting medicine that wasn't doing her any good and the woman was persistant about getting help and come to find out she had stage 3 esophageal cancer and she had to have a surgery where the took her esophagus out and pulled her stomach up to he throat.

The bottom line is if your not happy with your treatment insist on more testing so you can get proper treatment. YOU are your own best advocate.

I'm sure the show will be on again. You must see it if you can.
