Symptoms That Cannot Be Diagnosed

What Causes Symptoms That Doctors Cannot Diagnose?

Symptoms that doctors cannot diagnose can have various causes, just like most other symptoms.  Finding the true cause means ruling out or confirming each possibility – in other words, diagnosis.

Diagnosis is usually a complex process due to the sheer number of possible causes and related symptoms.  In order to diagnose symptoms that doctors cannot diagnose, we could:

  • Research the topic
  • Find a doctor with the time
  • Use a diagnostic computer system.
The process is the same, whichever method is used.

Step 1: List all Possible Causes

We begin by identifying the disease conditions which have "symptoms that doctors cannot diagnose" as a symptom.  For example, somatoform disorder.

Step 2: Build a Symptom Checklist

We then identify all possible symptoms and risk factors of each possible cause.

Step 3: Rule Out or Confirm each Possible Cause

A differential diagnosis of your symptoms and risk factors finds the likely cause of symptoms that doctors cannot diagnose.

Arriving at a Correct Diagnosis

The Analyst™ is our online diagnosis tool that learns all about you through a straightforward process of multi-level questioning, providing diagnosis at the end.

If you indicate recent doctor visit, The Analyst™ will ask further questions including this one:
Undiagnosed symptoms. Do you have symptoms that doctors have repeatedly failed to explain? In other words, have several doctor/hospital visits and tests found nothing wrong, despite very real symptoms that are affecting your ability to function?
Possible responses:
→ No / not thoroughly evaluated yet / don't know
→ Yes, 1-2 symptoms, undiagnosed for under 6 months
→ Yes, 1-2 symptoms, undiagnosed for over 6 months
→ Yes, 3+ symptoms, undiagnosed for under 6 months
→ Yes, 3+ symptoms, undiagnosed for over 6 months
Based on your response to this question, which may indicate either 1-2 repeatedly undiagnosed symptoms or 3+ repeatedly undiagnosed symptoms, The Analyst™ will consider possibilities such as Somatoform Disorder.
