First of all I am black. Minority and black especially do not get the appropriate treatment or diagnosis. The doctor lie to us about our health, they do not write down what we tell them most of the time. They give us medication without any instruction. They give us inappropriate treatment or tests that are not reliable. They cover up medical information. I am retired from the military. I was exposed to tubercolosis and they concealed my TB test.They use substandard test to rule out a disease. They make false statements. They conceal their idenity so you do not know who they are. I have a heart condition before I left the service, my EKG would alway be abnormal and they refuse to give me an echocardiogram. I went to a private doctor and they gave me an echocardiogram showing that I had cardiomyopathy. I had to insist on having a sleep study and now I am on a CPAP machine, I stop breathing 38 times per hour. They should outlaw X-rays for diagnostic procedure, they should only be used for bone structure. I was in tank company I was expose to loud noise and drove tactical vehicle in the rain without a top on the vehicle. I was in a car accident and lost my sense of smell an taste. I was diagnosis with fibromyalgia while in the service. Here is a list of other diseases I have sinuses, Tinea pedis, tinea barbae, central sleep apnea, chilibian, anemia, hepatitis, rotator cuff syndrome, torn cartilage in right knee, hearing loss, arteriosclerosis, emphysema, prurigo nordularis, invertebrae disc syndrome, deviation of the nasal septum, flatfeet. hand and wrist problems, reflux w/stricture, loss of maxillary, malunion of the mandible w/ severe malocculsion, inguinal hernia peptic ulcer, kidney stone, asbetosis, hypertension, acromegaly, cataract, tibia and fibula impairment, restless leg syndrome and I have eye problems. After reading the sysptoms for a heart attack, I have had three according to the systoms i have read. From the systems I read on Narcolepsy, I have narcolepsy. They say I do not have narcolepsy, but they can not tell me what it is. I was on Vioxx for two years, I was having strokes and I had a heart attack and did not know it. They finally told me on my last EKG that I had a heart attack at one time or another. I was on INH medication for twelve months back in 1984 and 1985 while in the service. It is sad that people do not believe in God. God will take punish all evil doers. I take about ten pills a day. And now you know.

  • First of all, the world is not conspiring against you because you are black so regain some composure and relax. The world conspires against people who can't pay for doctor's appointments and have bad insurance or none at all. If you fall into that category, don't use your race as an easy way out. I don't mean to be rude but it seems like you only have one disease, Hypochondriasis. This is a chronic and abnormal anxiety disorder about imaginary symptoms and ailments. Being told this by doctors is This is also caused by an extreme condition of addictions to prescription drugs. Although you may have a few of these symptoms, it is unlikely that you would be with us today with all of them including the ones that contradict each other. I realize you have not provided your list of prescription drugs you are taking, but 10 of any prescription is driven to cause psychological problems. You should go and see a Psychiatrist instead of trying to force doctors to prescribe you more medicine. Now, I'm not sure what the question was or if there even was a question here, but it seems like you wrote this for a guilt trip and you are not asking for any medical advice. It seems as though you have diagnosed some of your "diseases" yourself and without any proper medical consultation. If that's not the case, then it seems like you have enough medical attention as it is. You have not mentioned your age, which makes this difficult to determine some aspects of your problems. Also the statement about God at the end of your topic was totally unnecessary and quite irrational. It is unquestionably a side effect of permanent brain damage due to drug addiction and abuse.Hope you can figure things out for yourself. Have a nice day.

  • *Correction to last post by me, the responer* ... Being told this by doctors, can be fatal and often result in worsening of your mental disorder. Luckily I am here to tell you what they will not tell you....
