Each year, regular people in all walks of life find themselves experiencing real-life medical mysteries. The ailments they suffer can go undiagnosed or even misdiagnosed for long periods of time. While a doctor’s help is crucial, it is the patient’s true courage and determination for a cure and a quality of life that ultimately helps them navigate a world of medical uncertainties – and find the diagnosis they’re desperately searching for. Mystery Diagnosis features profound stories about everyday heroes who will help change the way we face medical mysteries. In each episode, we meet two patients who have endured strange, and often terrifying symptoms that have defied the experts.
The stories are told through intimate interviews with the patients, their families, friends and physicians. Symptoms emerge. Tests are performed. Specialists are consulted. And still, it’s unclear what’s turning the patient’s life upside down. Their relationships are pushed to the brink. Their finances are strained. Their sanity is often questioned. And it is only because of their will and perseverance to live a healthy and happy life, that a solid diagnosis can be made and their case solved.
