Continuing our discussion with warrior, Samah Khan. Samah’s dream was to be a doctor. She was making her dream a reality when in her penultimate year of medical school, mysterious and chronic symptoms started. She graduated but her health issues forced her to give up practicing medicine, her passion in life. Samah spent the following years searching for her diagnoses, being dismissed by the medical profession, and managing her new reality. With persistence, Samah was finally diagnosed with psoriatic arthritis, fibromyalgia, and joint hypermobile syndrome or Ehlers-Danlos, but to this day, doctors are unresolved on her conditions, leading her to suffer from improper management. In Part One, Samah reveals how she redefined success for herself. In Part Two, Samah shares her unique perspective on why doctors tend to dismiss patients with chronic illness especially functional disorders such as fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome and the importance of believing the patient.
