      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.

    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. 🙄

      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

    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.
