Im beginning to feel like I defy the laws of physics here. Had a Dr.'s appt. He has no diagnosis, his words were he "couldnt quite put his finger on it, he wanted me to continue with supplements and to try lyrica" which brings me to my first question why do dr's always want to prescribe drugs BEFORE they find out what is wrong with you?
I have a list of 45 symptoms of things and he focuses on weight loss, I btw dont even have weight loss on my list! I lost 4 pounds pshhhh what is the big deal. And while there are abnormalities in my blood work all the abnormalities are in the opposite direction of what would be indicated by a problem with weight loss. Everything is high whereas with weight loss in his words would come back low. Which leads me to my second question why are dr's freaky about weight when the patient and blood work say weight loss is fine? I walk humped over and take lil tiny steps, not only do I have days where I cant multi task I cant even single task, I'm so cold I cant stand it, even on nights I sleep I still wake up and feel like I havent, my arms dont always wanna do what I tell them to, I have spasms, twitches, and jerks, I envy my grandmother her poor memory because it is better than mine........... and the dr is worried cause I LOST 4 POUNDS! Blood work does however indicate a muscle disorder or some kind. Third question why are we not testing for what that disorder could be instead of just being randomly given drugs to try?
Fourth question when you asks your dr's those questions why do they seem to think those questions arent good questions?
And btw Im probably ranting on the wrong board because my blood work is also not consistent with patients with fibromyalgia but I like the board and its the only place I been where I can relate to other people's problems.
So here I am with a presciption in my hand for a drug I dont want to take for a problem a Dr. cant even diagnose. And another appointment in a month and a half from now just to see if said drugs are working. At times I think I'm a lil nuts I get cuts and burns and dont feel pain even though I know they are bad enough they should REALLY hurt then I'll go and get bood drawn which I know doesnt hurt and it feels like my arm is gonna fall off. The only thing one I believe is nuttier than I am is these dr.'s and the drugs they are always trying to shove down my throat. I know people that cant beg a pain presciption from there dr's, me on the other hand I ask for anything and they either write it out or ask if I want something stronger.
Forgive the rant but I just needed to talk to someone that could possibly relate and understand and while I have people in my life I can talk to they sympathize or comfort but they do not understand. This is about the only place I could think of where someone possibly might. Sympathy tends to just make me wanna give in and cry understanding on the other hands makes me wanna get up and try harder.
