This is from a BBC video, about someone who was misdiagnosed and sent to a psychiatric ward, but it was later understood that her illness was something different. So, in the video, an expert talks about such problems:
Having your physical symptoms mistaken for a mental illness, is not uncommon.
The structure of the sentence draws my attention. It seems like a causative as in "Having your car repaired is very expensive.", but I doubt if this meaning sits well with the sentence in question, because you don't hire anyone to misdiagnose your symptoms. It just happens.
So, I wonder, is this sentence "Having your symptoms mistaken is ...." simply a causative structure?
Or, although it seems to have the structure of causative, does it have a different meaning?
