I live in Arkansas.
I was misdiagnosed by a doctor, and everyone is telling me to sue, but I don't know.
Here's what happened. Last Friday I had a bite on my leg, by Monday it was looking pretty gross so I went to a walk-in clinic. The doctor there looked at it and said "Yeah, that's definitally a tick bite, and you have a staph infection in it. What you need to do is keep heat on it, drain the fluid out of the boil, and keep a bandage on it." He gave me some antibiotics. I took those but by Wednesday the thing on my leg looked even worse and I was in an extreme amount of pain, so I went to a different doctor. He sent me over to the hospital. They said that it was a brown recluse bite (that does have staph infection). They said under no means should I have applied heat to it, but ice instead. And I wasn't suppose to drain it because draining it made the venom spread down my leg, and the dr even told me to get the wrong kind of bandages. And because I waited so long for proper treatment of the wound, the skin has died around it and I have to have that removed.
Is this something worth suing over?
