Some things are just hard to diagnose.

Last year, my brother was tormented by itching that numerous doctors and specialists weren't able to diagnose. Doctors were looking at doing an MRI to look for a possible brain tumor as a cause of the problem.

However, it turned out to be scabies, an infestation of mites probably picked up from the yoga mat used at a yoga class.

My brother's wife is a nurse midwife, and she suggested scabies as a possible cause of the problem rather early, but doctors didn't want to hear about that.
