Summary
Sarah Ramey's story began with what seemed like a routine infection which would not respond to the usual treatment with antibiotics. It came to some kind of conclusion eight nightmare years later when - finally - her mother (a doctor) was reading through her daughter's notes and realized that one single blood test result (among hundreds) from five years previously had never come through. This test was re-run and revealed a straightforward diagnosis, for which there was a standard, effective treatment. The lady's handbook for her mysterious illness is a nuanced, angry, sardonic, intelligent, indignant and sometimes amusing book which will speak to legions of women who find themselves faced with scepticism and bafflement from their doctor. Sarah Ramey tries to untangle the knot of prejudice, embarrassment, ignorance, and annoying behaviour from patients, medical professionals and alternative health practitioners which has led to millions of women leading lives of misery and pain because of undiagnosed and untreated illness
