Hi, I have my doctor appointment this afternoon and since I've had so many unsympathetic doctors I really want my appointment with this different doctor to go right. I want to be polite but assertive at the same time but I never seem to get a fine balance of the two. Is it just a question of how I start what I want to say? So for example would saying something like "despite taking the medication and my levels all within normal range I still continue to have symptoms. Please will you help me work out why I continue to suffer" work?
I'm working on a list of points to take with me to the appointment but last night I looked in the mirror and I looked like I was dead on my feet (pale face, dark rings around my eyes) and today I don't look much better. Maybe by telling the doctor I look more tired than usual might help as well as my other 4 concerns? Thanks
