Thank you for answering wearyRAsufferer. No pain is good pain, but I’m glad yours has lessened.
The medical community is only taught to treat acute (short lasting ) illness (sniffles, urinary tract infections, a sore throat), so when it comes to those of us with chronic illnesses, they don’t believe us because they’ve never studied our diseases. Believe me, after spending as long as I did in medical lab science, they couldn’t generate a diagnosis without us and our lab equipment. They rely way too heavily on labs that they don’t even understand and they use our analyzer calibrated reference ranges instead of bothering to come up with their own. It’s out of sheer ignorance that they patronize us.
