Frustrated and Disheartened

The appt. did not go well & I am so upset that this will be short.

He basically did not listen when I described the stroke like symptoms I have been having, he said it was due to all the pain I was having but yet he won't give me anything for the pain, not even for my migraines.

He refused to write anything to social services to help me get a medical card. He said my family doc had to do that. I don't have a family doctor u niwit (I could say alot worse but I won't.)
After basically hounding him and almost arguing with him, he ordered another MRI to see if it is strokes or seizures I have been having. See these episodes happened after getting out of hodspital so it would not have shown up on those tests if it is mini strokes.
He did give me ativan which the Er Doc had given me and hasscontolled my tremors completly. He also prescribed another medicine to help me sleep.

He was rude, arrogant and I was in tears in his office.

I'm tired and want this to be over, I am in bed and I'gonna pull the covers over my head and maybe stay here for days.

This is not the doctor for you! (Actually, he sounds like he is not the doctor for anyone!) Can you see someone else?

I hope you a peaceful and restful night...

i understand your frustration. most doctors don't treat us like people and don't believe we know when something is wrong with us. i will pray for you. be dependant on the Lord through this, I know it is hard..Rest in Him, knowing you may never get a diagnosis, even if there is something wrong..i really do understand what you are going through..been there done that. :)

I am praying for you, doctors can be difficult, it sucks. I'm glad you got your meds. Get some rest, I always take advil for pain, have yoy tried it? If you take 3 or 4 pills it's prescription strengh comes up to 600 or 1000mg. It works for me for most things.
