Hi all, I'm interested to find out if anyone has challenged Dr's on their knowledge or understanding of FND and its associated problems, how you went about it and what their response(s) were?
I've seen my works doctor (who is a GP not a specialist) three times now since falling ill again in April and being off since May. When I've spoke of my symptoms he's spoke in a manner as if to say I'm making it up. A recent example being, I mentioned I've experienced 4 or 5 episodes of blindness in my right eye. He scoffed and said "what do you mean blind?". My response was "you're a doctor, as in can't see". Even my Mrs noticed how he scoffed and said it as if I was lying. It really angered me and I felt so let down. I've had enough now and am really gearing myself up for a clash when I see him next. It's almost like if they don't know something they talk to you as if you're thick in an effort to hide their own lack of knowledge.
