Went to a new GP yesterday. I had a lot of hope of getting DX'ed. Instead I was told "my symptoms are not physical". I have never been so friggin depressed about something this stupid.
I was going to a "clinic" prior to this appt. The clinic was over run with too many patients-unless something is severe-you go to the bottom of the barrel.
Finally got on my husband's insurance and was really hoping that this "doctor" would help me somehow. Instead I got a lecture about depression. I was NOT depressed untill this "doctor" completely ignored my symptoms and told me the problems were not physical.
Here are my symptoms:
-Extreme, disabling fatigue.
-Major bleeding with period-sometimes literal hemorrhaging.
I also passed out last month for no apparent reason. Went to ER by ambulance. Everything "normal" except cholesterol very high (despite low fat & low sugar diet), high blood sugar, and low potassium.
I got all the blood tests redone after initial ER visit. Everything back to normal except cholesterol was still high.
I have strong family history of Hashimoto's thyroiditis-thyroid tests "normal".
My paternal Aunt (is currently dying from) has Lupus and my maternal grandfather had lupus.
I had a "positive" "ANA ab" blood test back in 2004.
The "ANTIrnp" came back as 2.04 back in 2004.
I was told at the clinic in 2004 that it was not a big deal for these tests to come back the way they did. Also, at the time-the only real symptom I had was major fatigue.
Any help out there with this???
I was not depressed but since yesterday I am very depressed. I feel like I am carrying out of "life sentence" of some wacky health problem that no one can figure out-thus no one can help me out.
I am so desperate.
