There's so much truth in what you wrote... You have come to the right place to "vent". We all know how you feel!
When I go to my doctors appointments, I am not too quick to disclose my anxiety condition for fear of a quick dismissal of my symptoms. It seems like they are awful fast to jump to the "anxiety diagnosis" when they can't find a legitimate reason for our symptoms.
But here's what I DO know... There has got to come a point in our "search" for answers where we have to accept what the doctors have told us. It was only after many, many tests and 2nd and 3rd opinions that I fully accepted that I am struggling with an anxiety disorder.
I know alot of people who live with chronic pain - you are so not alone! Our human bodies are very complex and as we get older there will be certain pains that we have to live with everyday. I know this doesn't make it any easier for you. Don't forget, there are several options (besides medication) for pain management. This may be something to look into as you progress in your journey.
The main thing is that you got to vent! And we hear ya loud and clear! I encourage you to come here to "vent" as often as you like! You're surrounded by people who know how you feel and care deeply about
Sending you prayers and healing thoughts!
