Misdiagnosed: The Search for Dr. House by Nika Beamon a medical memoir, receiving praise from major reviewers and bestselling authors:
“In this hope-filled memoir, a woman rises above the challenges of navigating the modern American medical system. Beamon, a TV journalist, lays herself bare as she frankly discusses her journey through years of suffering as she searches for a diagnosis for her illness. For those with unusual conditions, the road to diagnosis can be filled with disbelieving doctors, seemingly unrelated symptoms, and increasing desperation as the sick person struggles to understand why the body is failing. The author bravely relates all of these things, presenting her growth through long-term pain, her life with chronic illness, and her journey to becoming her own medical advocate in touching and sometimes agonizing detail.“ – “Publisher’s Weekly”
“A saga of dealing with a chronic illness that shows how health intertwines with work, love and life.” — “Kirkus Reviews”
