hello. I am a 'healthy' 26 year old male. At 17 i was diagnosed with bipolar and ocd, when i was 23 i contracted a virus in my brain and fell ill, and was diagnosed with me/cfs as i met the criteria, but nothing else fitted the symptoms, ie ruled out parkinson's, ms... But because of this diagnosis and the amount of tests i've had (doctors request) i have had problems seeking seeking help for my bipolar. The last doctor i saw said i suffered with health anxiety and drug abuse and did not want to see me. I smoked cannabis for 1 year for chronic pain but stopped as it interfered with work. I do not drink alcohol or use any other drug apart from nicotine and caffeine. 4 years before i smoked cannabis i had a psychotic break, suffered delusions, attempted suicide, and not drift in and out of reality. But somehow the doctor thinks this is down to cannabis. I am now finding it very hard to to see a doctor because i am labeled a hypochondriac. Even though i have never seen a doctor thinking i am dying of cancer etc. I have a lump on my face that bleeds, one on my leg and my lymph nodes are hard and mis shapen, all don't bother me, i am not perfect, however family are now concerned because i won't get checked out. Even though i know i'm ok. What can i do. I still need to go to see someone about my detachment and psychosis but i'm going to be bombarding the doc with all these things and confirm hypochondriaReply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
