I'm getting increasingly frustrated and upset with the response I'm getting from doctors in my surgery, to the extent I don't want to go even when I have to. I don't have a fixed GP currently as there are only locums in the practice. It seems whenever I visit regarding a physical health issue they are telling me it's psychosomatic 😐😥😠, and as a result I'm being dismissed. I end up walking away with nothing achieved, I feel deflated, and stuck and don't know how to get them to take me seriously. Im spoken to as though I'm a child. i had an appointment earlier today. The GP I said the following to me.
"How do you know your symptoms aren't psychosomatic?, you havent spent years studying about it."
So now I don't know my own body or mind apparently but he does just because he said so. Am I expected to accept this? How does one get around doctors who are resistant or obstructive? (That's how I feel he was being with me)
Does anybody else ever encounter anything like this?
Any advice or help would be appreciated if anyone can relate to this? Or can advise me on how I may be able to get around this. Thanks.
