Is the History of Women's Health Riddled with Misdiagnosis and Myths?
On The Mountain Life, Lynn speaks with Elinor Cleghorn, who shares a trailblazing, conversation-starting history of misdiagnosis and myths in women’s health.
In Cleghorn’s case, for a decade she was told her symptoms were anything from psychosomatic to a possible pregnancy.
As she learned to live with her unpredictable disease, she turned to history for answers and found what appeared to be a legacy of suffering, mystification, and misdiagnosis.
Cleghorn breaks all this down in her new book, UNWELL WOMEN: Misdiagnosis and Myth in a Man-Made World.
