Anyone have a doctor misdiagnose you with something?

A while ago my doctor thought i had a hernia because i was throwing up in the mornings.
So we went for some tests and he said that I did have a hernia and gave me pills.
Then after a few months I didn't take the pills for a few days and I was fine so I went to a specialist to get it checked out. She did a endoscopy i think it was called, and put me asleep and stuck a camera down my throat. When the results came back I was perfectly fine AND to top it all off the tests that my doctor did said that I didn't have a hernia as well.
It all turned out to be stress.
So it really pissed me off that my doctor saw the tests didn't show anything and just pulled "You got a hernia HERE TAKE PILLS" right out of his ass.
This leads me to believe that there are lots or some doctors who at the end of the day just prescribe as many pills and meds as they can so they get paid more.
What do you guys think ?

EDIT: I know not all doctors are like this >.<

My doctor is rad. There's like a 3 week waiting list to see him because he's so rad.

To be honest, I'd rather just have tried and tested treatment, instead of radical.

Thanks for calling me a future asshole.

EDIT: When you DO have a hernia, you come see me, and I will tell you you're fine and I won't give you pills. Let's see how you like that. Just be thankful that it wasn't the other way around, eh?

My family doctor doesn't even live in the same country as me. She lives in Florida and only comes up to practice one week per month. That's all she's contracted for, so when she comes up here, there's already a mile-long waiting list. And changing family doctors in Canada is nigh on impossible, due to the shortage of them. Twice, this past year, I've been forced to seek medical attention in a hospital because my family doctor and walk-in clinics were packed. So yes. Doctors CAN be assholes.

Well there's been plenty of real-life doctors who want to harm patients.

But they're more rare than a smart creationist.

lemme correct you...

Doctors ARE assholes!

They misdiagnosed me like a hundred times already...
when I was 4 I threw up everything I ate...
They needed 1 year and a half to find out what was wrong.
Then they did an operation and it went wrong.
Now they're tried to fix it but they misdiagnosed me again.
So now I went to Italy...maybe they'll help.

My Doctor said I am going to die of a fatal Asthma Attack if I don't stop smoking, my asthma is so bad I've gone beyond the need for a pump and gave me steroids, insisting I attend a stop smoking group upon finishing the course.

The next doctor said I was fine, didn't even have asthma. Go figure?

Everybody screws up om their job from time to time. It's just 100 times more noticeable when a doctor does it, because it's about someones health.

Maybe if you didn't finish yer pills you would be dead by now.. HOW ABOUT THAT

Doctors are human, too. Also, they more or less have to memorize all the at least somewhat common diseases out there and how to spot them AND how to treat them. They also have to take a test every few years to keep their medical license. It's not impossible for them to slip up here or there.
