Suggestions for Dysthymic Disorder

One of the first issues for a newly diagnosed Dysthymic Disorder patient is to consider whether the diagnosis is correct. It is important to validate a diagnosis of Dysthymic Disorder and be certain of its accuracy. On the other hand, hoping for a misdiagnosis should not be used as a way to vacillate and avoid treatment for a serious medical problem. Nevertheless, it is prudent to attempt to confirm a diagnosis via methods such as seeking second opinions, consulting specialists, getting further medical tests, and researching information about Dysthymic Disorder.

There are various types of misdiagnosis ranging from a totally wrong diagnosis to a partial misdiagnosis as to the wrong subtype, underlying condition, medication causes, related conditions, or complications. Conditions for which a person never seeks medical advice are also a common type of misdiagnosis.
