Honestly - I had a doctor who functioned the same way he kept telling me "one thing at a time". I'm sorry but my body doesn't work by "one thing at a time" when I flare up - EVERYTHING flares up - I wish it did it just one thing at a time. I know everyone else is saying to give this doctor some time, but if after a while your getting the same treatment I'd find somewhere else completely. I would even be willing to drive longer in order to see a new doctor.
I'm a HUGE fan of writing things down for appointments. My doctors all know that I come in with a list of things I hope to discuss. It helps them because they know that going in I've got a list so I'm not leaving things out. I also have no problem telling them when this is going on - this gets worse. I've also flat out asked doctors if certain things could be or are connected. For example when I came down with a very bad case of costochondritis my doctor at the time refused to acknowledge that the back pain and chest pain were related - and completely flat out said the pain when I'm upset and breathe was asthma and not connected to anything else. He was wrong with all of it. He said the back was muscle spasms and had no clue what the chest pain was, and the breathing pain and trouble was asthma - it all turned out to be costochondritis. That doc got fired very shortly after this started.
