How Doctors Can Spot When You’re Faking An Illness
Over-exaggerating of symptoms that are not correlating with the clinical picture and history that is being told. “This is a suspicious sign”, according to Dr Shaikh.
- A sick certificate around public holidays or long weekends is often very suspicious.
- Asking for more days to be added-on to the already initiated medical certificate always renders suspicion.
- A patient that refuses certain medications/procedures that would otherwise benefit the ailments of which she/he complains of. A good example of this are blood tests to rule out other causes.
