I'm sorry to hear that your doctor is still at a loss as to what is causing the pain. It must be frustrating for you that you doctor has suggested seeing a psychiatrist as most of us with this disease just know how unpredictable it can be and therefore have experienced all sort of unusual problems because of it. Seeing the psychiatrist might be helpful, if only to get things off your chest!!!
Keep us posted on how you get on.
Thanks a bunch, Samantha. It was really upsetting when he told me to go see a psychiatrist. I feel like whenever this pain returns, he starts telling me that I'm stressed in life and that's why it has appeared. Most of the time, I feel so happy in life despite the pain. Things are usually going just great. I feel like my family doctor actually starts taking my happiness away by telling me how I "actually" feel; how I am suppressing my true feelings. When I saw my psychiatrist last, he discharged me from his care. The last 3-4 times I went to see him, he kept asking me why I was still seeing him as I was no longer depressed and I was fine to deal with things on my own. I was seeing him because my family doctor kept insisting I wasn't fine which is what he is doing now again -_- I'm going to go see my psychiatrist and tell him exactly what has been happening with my family doctor and see what he thinks about
it. Thanks for your comment and support, Samantha. I really appreciate it!
