It's not always easy for a physician to diagnose what's ailing someone who has something wrong with their health. Sometimes baffling symptoms lead to controversial diagnoses and -- potentially -- costly treatments. This docuseries follows several people with chronic illnesses who are searching for answers... and relief. The subjects include Carmen, whose strange symptoms are triggered by Wi-Fi and electricity; Star, who has been diagnosed with a dozen different medical conditions; Jamison, who hasn't left his room in two years; and Bekah, who lives in a van in the desert to avoid mold.
