Hi, I have recently changed doctors due to my previous doctor being completely inadequate in care. I have been experiencing chronic neck pain that leads to severe headaches and migraines for the past few years, each time I went in to see my old doctor (usually every 2 months or so), she would check it out and tell me it was simply a muscle spasm or muscle strain and to take migraine medicines and pain relievers (ibuprofen), I went in at least 7 or 8 times regarding this pain. I went into my new doctor, he advised that I have Fibromyalgia in my neck and that if it were diagnosed earlier I could have simply taken medicines/gone to therapy to cure it, but now only expensive surgery or extremely painful therapy would help. Is there any legal action I can take on my old doctor for misdiagnosis?
