Why is Morgellons disease so controversial?

Morgellons disease is not widely accepted as a valid diagnosis by the medical community, so it has become quite controversial. Not a lot of research has been done on Morgellons disease, so most of the reported cases come directly from people with the disease themselves, instead of scientific evidence. Also, the symptoms of Morgellons disease tend to mimic other, more common diseases, so doctors tend to treat the common disease before Morgellons disease. Also, patients who have the symptoms of Morgellons disease are sometimes reluctant to hear other possible causes of their symptoms.
