Hi I don't want to sound all pitying or Doctor bashing and I am sorry if it comes across that way. I have Fibro, Agoraphobia and every nasty little thing that comes along with these. For the past 6 days I have also had the pleasure of dealing with hives, from top to toe, and I don't know where from. I am not able to take medication due to a phobia(I will explain better later), apart from applying creams, and I think that this is where the main problem lies. I read on here daily that people are being offered this test and that test, or MRI or this therapy and quite frankly lots of help. All that my Doctor wants to do is give me drugs. My experiences with him include asking for help with concerns over my weight, I did not have the chance to say if I was losing or gaining weight, he said "I am going to gain weight as I am less mobile". In 2002 I had a lump come up inside my cheek, I had it checked and the specialist was a bit puzzled and said live with it for as long as I can, it might go away on its own, or come back if it gets worse. It got worse so in 2011 went back to docs and asked for a referral after reminding him of the previous situation with it and he said "it's not cancer you know" (My Mum had been diagnosed earlier that year with cancer) He also on 2 separate occasions forgot to do the referral letters 1 being to the breast clinic. Hence I haven't been back to him now for nearly 3 years. My phobia for medication comes about in 1993 because a different doctor I went to for help with a sleeping problem, after recently moving, said that I needed anti-depressants and I said no I just wanted help getting a sleep pattern back. He said ok and gave me 30 days of medication. I had a sleep pattern back and at the end of the 30 days the tablets ran out. 2 days later I was hiding behind my bedroom door really scared that I was going to harm my children. I phoned the Docs and they said that I should never have just stopped taking the ANTI-DEPRESSANTS. The tablet was a tablet that was a few years later they banned it in the states for having the highest suicide and self harming rate. Sorry for going on and I will understand if nobody has read it all. Am I just being to sensitive or should I be getting more help.
