I was wondering if anyone has any advice on doctors not taking you (and your pain) seriously. I had an appointment with a doctor today after having two lots of OTC medication not work for thrush (which has persisted since mid-March). She asked me why I hadn't taken OTC medication (which I had, twice) and why I was calling (which I said that the NHS webpage says call your GP if medication doesn't work/thrush keeps coming back). She dismissed all my concerns, ('m concerned that my PCOS might be contributing to my thrush) and made me feel like a complete idiot and left me in tears. It's like every appointment I have at the moment I cry because I'm not listened to, given inappropriate medication or just spoken to like an idiot.
Does anyone have any advice on persistent thrush, as OTC stuff isn't working and my doctors aren't willing to investigate further, and how to get your doctors to take you seriously?
Thanks so much, feel completely alone in all this xx
