What is Medical Gaslighting?

We are thrilled to be revisiting one of our most popular podcast episodes! Do you feel you have experienced medical gaslighting?

If you have migraine or another chronic pain condition, chances are you have experienced medical gaslighting. Medical gaslighting can result in a form of medical trauma, and it can alter the manner in which we interact with the healthcare system. It can make you feel sicker, cause you to shut down, or to question yourself and the validity of your pain. It can also make you feel helpless or angry. In this week’s episode of For Heads Sake- Lindsay Weitzel, Ph.D. asks Dr. Melissa Geraghty, Psy.D. about the effects of medical gaslighting and what we can do about it. The audio version will be available on Thursday, September 29, 2022, wherever you get your podcasts!
