Sometimes it's harder to get results for some of us. Doctors are not listening and when you do suggest to check this or that, they pass you along to a specialist who you can't get in with for months. Then if you need a procedure you can't get if done for a month or two.
I experienced going to an ER last week, the ER doc was told what all was going on, he then asked what I want him to do for me. I said I need relief of pain. I had severe diarrea for two months after starting plaquenil and lexapro. I was told to go off of them after telling both doctors what was going on. I was sick and off work for two weeks with what I thought was digestive problems. and pelvic pain which bowel problems run in my family, but I was to the end of my rob, being in bed for weeks isn't my way of life. I wen to the ER and the doctor blatenly told me that if I didn't have a stroke, a heart attack or were in an accident, he could not help me. I burst out crying got off the table and wanted to leave. He wanted to talk about something and I said if you don't want to help, I am wasting your time and my time and money. I found out later that he is like that, he is from a big city ER and only comes there once a month. But the head of ER called me because of someone I knew who knew what happened. By the way it's a newer hospital, they moved to another location and are struggling to get patients. So I told her what happened, but I said I was very concerned for anyone who went in there when he was there because the state I was in from dealing with pain and just getting passed around by doctors I could have very well taken my life if it were someone else.. She apologized very much, but it didn't seem like enough. I told her I was never so humiliated in all my life. I said someone with a migrane goes in and gets a pain shot and goes home with some relief. That's all I was asking that day. I told them how severe the pain was.
So you see, some of us struggle for a long time to try to find a doctor who will help. just amazes me to look at these doctor now days, the seem to be in it for the money.
