Has anyone here had experience of Doctors who don't give you the full picture or give you the impression you are ok.
I have found specialists using unclear terms like "no significant disease" in correspondence when this evidence is there I have mild disease.
I always find at visits with my Pulmo he is saying things like you are doing well, you are fine, you have nothing to get overly concerned about, things look good to me, etc, etc.
None of them every gave me a diagnosis until I met a straight talking German Pulmo this month who said I have chronic bronchitis.
In the background I'm coughing up my lungs and waking up at night due to SOB and feeling generally poor most of the time. I also have a well documented history of mild smoking and asthma.
I have also come across a paper on Theraputic Privilage in the medical profession that more or less states this is the modus operandi for some doctors.
Personally I belive unless one is at a severe stage the Pulmonary profession play it all down due to the impact this disease has on ones mental health, quality of life and outcomes.
