I'm in charge of my health
I used to post a good bit about my health problems because it seems my body is failing me. Doctors and everyone thought I was crazy because I had a different complaint everyday. I have to treat myself, I have to Google myself, I have to ask for labs myself. I've even got myself tested for things like lyme disease because of my symptoms. Well I now have a lead. I went to the doctors and requested full labs, testesteone/cholesterol test, and some other test. I was positive for ana which points towards lupus. I had to ask for labs, I basically had to diagnose myself.
I'm so sick of the medical field I just want a doctor that would care. I remember asking for a test few years ago and my doctor immediately gave me testesteone injections without testing or caring what was wrong or listening to what I was saying. Well that failed and I went cold turkey like 3 months ago
While I’m late to posting a reply to your post, I share in your frustration! Drs only treat us for symptoms based on our own diagnoses! That’s why we see so dam many drug ads on TV!
Same with car mechanics! I’m stuck finding the directions to fixing my sunroof on YouTube before I get an appt for the repair! Unfortunately the instructions vary on car models/years and my technical skills suck. I’m still working on this.
I sure hope you are feeling much better!
Have a wee bit better day!
