#1 “I’m In So Much Pain.”

There are many people who can manage their pain on their own and have a high threshold for tolerating long term pain, but then there are others who visit a doctor so often for the slightest thing that some professionals believe they are just trying to get medications to misuse. This is becoming very common, and the doctors are aware of it. These are just as dangerous as street drugs and sometimes impossible to get away from, leading to other higher level drugs when the prescriptions disappear. It's not a good thing to lie about your level of pain.

#2 “I Stay Away From Junk Food!”

It's pretty embarrassing to tell your doctor that you much on chips and candy all day and your dinner consists of a Taco bell value meal, but lying about it won't help either. Plus, your doctor can tell by examining you that you are not eating properly. Many people lie about this because they don't want to waste time on a long lecture about nutrition. So if you think it’s embarrassing to be forthright with your doctor about how much you love junk food, imagine when you have to fess up after you’re caught because there’s literally too much junk in your system after they run the lab tests.
