    The Curse of a ‘None of the Above’ Disease
    Millions of Americans languish with elusive or poorly understood diseases. New genetic research — and some humility from doctors — might help.

    There is the clear need for a constructive approach to "medically unexplained symptoms" which would involve doctors saying "I don't know what is wrong" as well as focused research and education on topics such as POTS, MCAS, EDS, and so on.

  4. GENUINE Science does not dismiss the unexplained as long as it has supporting evidence
    In fact the "unexplained" is what those who love Science RELISH!
    Just takes time and effort, sometimes centuries, to understand things

    But the Medical Profession?
    PFFT! Arrogant camel scrotums who won't admit.they are a cult and that.is proven by their condemnation of anything that y can't understand, that challenges their authority or they can't make profit from
    Long since.time genuine physicians FOUGHT to reclaim and rebuild their system and regain their honour, to put care for the sick and not ego as the absolute of their profession
    If you do not.oppose evil, you support it

    I always wonder at which point in human history something as mundane as the concept of an unknown or not understood disease became "medically unexplained symptoms",that label implying that they're some sort of special disease that can't be understood by normal scientific means when clearly it isn't the case and it never was the case with unknown or unexplained diseases
