Physician Frustration

When I first joined this site I had TN. I now also have fibromyagia, arthritis and a very bad back. I’m really struggling with my family Dr… I’m definitely feeling that he is annoyed with having to deal with all these issues. The last two Drs. I tried told me that everything was just in my head. Of course I never went back. I feel like giving up on Drs right now. It’s not my fault I have these conditions. I just don’t know where to turn anymore. No Dr wants to deal with so many issues in one patient. After the two Drs. That told me it was all in my head, the idea of changing Drs is horrifying. I’m a very educated patient. I’ve had to be. So I advocate for myself but I always very mannerly but I do stand up for myself. Is that wrong? I’m just tired of feeling like everyone just thinks I’m crazy. That couldn’t be farther from the truth. I just don’t feel like I’m being treated with the respect I’m do as a patient. I’m just lost and frustrated as to what to do. My physicians nurse is rude to me every time we interact. I’ve never been anything but kind and mannerly to her. I even asked her if I had done something to offend her. If anyone has any thoughts or ideas

I feel for you, I really do. I also have TN, severe arthritis and a 20 year long bout of chronic insomnia. I'm still lucky enough to work part time but every shift I wonder how long I can keep it up. My doctor just blames it all on my weight. Everything. If a comet fell out of the sky and landed on me she'd claim it was because I'm wide and it couldn't miss me.

She's not the doctor who diagnosed these things as he has moved but going to see her is just so much hard work!! I've never felt that she takes me seriously. I have to keep going to her though because none of the others in the area are accepting new patients.

Im about to find another primary too… You must!

But my insurance has allowed me a specialist for chronic fatigue syndrome ,

And physical therapist for my degenerative discs / osteoarthritis for my neck.

So i rarely see my doctor…i call for refills and she gives me referrals to people who can help me. Shes just swamped…
