:eek: I have my own problems trying to get a diagnosis. I have had all the symptoms of MS for over a year.Not to mention seven other "Episodes" starting when I was 21, now am 34.
Last Feb,went to great PA who sent me to an ok internist, who sent me to a heartless Neurologist, who said, " I think its just stress. wow..realy? Stress can make me so week that I can hardly walk for weeks? Come on Lady!
Seven months later went to Nuero #2 who said " I think you are having seizures" my response... wow realy? I have been siezures nearly everyday for the last year. Strange, only about 2 of my 50 symptoms match up with that. So I did her EEG and it showed nothing... so I asked for a Lumbar puncture to rule out MS, since nothing showes on MRI either. Her response... " you don't have any of the symptoms of MS. Its like this lady had me "diagnosed" before I have even got to the appointment.
Are you kidding me, I have All of the symptoms of MS and I am so tired of being on a wild goose chase of trying to get a diagnosis. This part is almost more stressfull than being sick.
The big QUESTION, WHy in the world don't doctors listen. I mean why can't they show any empathy or compasion?
Don't they understand that by not listening, they are in fact making people who are already ill, even more sick to the stress the Doc is putting on them. The doctor is in fact, making the patient sicker. Not to mention that with out a diagnosis, treatment can not start either.
I have read thread after thread on here, and all I keep seeing is that they just don't seem to listen. It makes me want to go undercover and run a sting operation on medical America.
Ok, I feel better. Anyone else feel like venting?
