Misdiagnosis a factor in vaping-related illnesses

As vaping-related lung injuries are reported more frequently in Hawaii and across the country, some people may be suffering more due to misdiagnosis. Doctors across the country as well as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention are struggling to understand why hundreds of people have suddenly become ill with a serious lung disease after vaping or using e-cigarettes. Vapes have been on the market for years and are popular internationally, but the disease appears to be occurring mostly in the United States. People are reporting to doctors' offices and hospitals with shortness of breath, cough, nausea, vomiting and fatigue, and some of them are showing signs of a serious lung illness.
