So, because my dr refuses to take my symptoms as a whole and seems determined to treat them one by one, I've had an ECG and been referred to a dermatologist, both of which he basically said were pointless exercises but I think he wanted to get rid of me. I had a blood test at the dermatologists a month or two ago and had a follow up appointment today. I travelled 50 mins to the hospital then waited for 40ish minutes for the appointment then when I saw the dermatologist, he didn't even sit down the whole"appointment". He basically said "do you want an appointment for a hair specialist?" The whole appointment was so he could ask me if I wanted to see a hair specialist at a later date!! He wouldn't discuss any of my other symptoms (I tried) and said he had looked at my blood results (normal of course) "extensively" and there's "nothing wrong" with me and basically shooed me out of there. He couldn't even give me any more details about my bloods being "normal" because the room didn't have a computer. I have to wait for them to get sent to my dr now
Why did no one think it would be a better use of time and money (their own and mine) to perhaps ring me to set up an appointment for the hair specialist?? And to practically refuse to talk about my other symptoms... Granted he's a dermatologist but he just wouldn't talk to me at all and just suggested I might just have early onset female hair loss (I've been fobbed off with this "early onset" stuff before... My Dr flippantly said I sounded like I had early onset dementia when I told him about brain fog... I'm 26 btw and my last b12 was around 200 and my TSH is "normal" but far from optimal so you lovely people tell me, but yes early onset dementia is the most logical explanation!!
Sorry, this has turned into such a rant but I had to just get it off my chest! anyone got any ridiculous stories/things their doctors have said?
