Doctors of Reddit, what was the worse thing you've seen for a patient that another Doctor overlooked?

I was unable to eat anything without ungodly abdominal pain. After a couple of days, I went to the ER. They treated me like garbage, told me I had either menstrual cramps or gas and sent me home. I begged, please don’t send me away like this, I can’t handle the pain. I’m not doctor but I’m wondering if I have some kind of blockage. The doctor literally laughed at me and walked out of the room. They said I displayed drug seeking behavior (although never asked for anything for pain). They sent me home. I went to another ER the next day.

Anyway, turns out I had an intestinal blockage that required emergency surgery. I’ve had 11 operations in my life and that was definitely the worst pain I’ve ever experienced. I will never understand why they thought I was lying.
