do you ever feel like when you tell your doctor there something wrong they don't take you seriously?
Diabetes Type 2 (T2D)
Omg yes! It makes me feel like I’m from a different planet!
I feel like they should take us seriously.. because we just want to get better
If I get that feeling I just never go back. They’re a waste of my time. It’s really frustrating because I feel like men don’t have as hard a time with doctors believing them.
wait that’s totally not true is men get the same thing
I don't trust male gp. I prefer female.
Yesss!!! A rheumatologist in my doctor's office told me that if I took better care of myself I wouldn't have flare ups that land me in ER. 🙄
I have in the past. I'm fortunate enough to have finally found a great one.
what is your best advice to give me ? Cause I feel like my doctor not listening to me and my pain is just getting worse?
maybe it's time to find a new Dr. I feel like if they are too busy or whatever to listen then they are too busy to have me as a patient.
you can also Google Dr's around you and see reviews before making an appointment
Definitely my doctor just wants to not listen and push pills on me I'm type 2 diabetic. I asked for a test meter. She told me no there's no reason to get 1
try getting one at Kroger. They sell some without a prescription
With some providers, yes
Yes, I always feel like I’m being bounced around between drs, dismissed, and/or passed off to different specialists. Can really start to feel like you’re crazy and no one wants to deal with you.
I got "you're too young to feel like that."
And that was that.
I've even had a Dr put me on anti-depressants because i cried about pain in my arm.
2 years later and many many shots, i had my neck fused . I had bone spurs, pinched nerves, ruptured disk.
