Hi, how many different doctors do you have to see? Because I have to see so many that it's exhausting.

      I'm looking for a new PCP because mine have all been so dismissive, but otherwise I have a neurologist, endocrinologist, therapist, GI (who can't figure out what's wrong with my GI tract and keeps running invasive tests on me), osteopathologist... I think that's it

        same here with the gi doc. They've done several things and will probably be doing more, but they still can't figure out what's wrong. And it's so exhausting and frustrating feeling so horrible with no explanation as to why

        oh wait I forgot GI 😂

    Primary, endocrinologist, gynecologist, allergist, dermatologist, psychiatrist, therapist. I completely feel you, it's so much to deal with especially with keeping track of all the appointments and medications and blood tests and just god so much. Even my elderly parents see less doctors than I do (which I'm grateful for their good health of course but wow). So I commend you in solidarity for doing what you need to do to take care of yourseld❤️

    I just counted and I’m at a little over 30 that I’ve seen since becoming sick. And that’s not counting PTs! It’s exhausting! If you ever want to talk about it I’m here. I just try to remember that each visit is a step toward getting better!

  • Sarah24

    Primary care, GI surgeon, GI physician, eating disorder therapist, trauma therapist, psychiatrist, dietician, chiropractor. I also need to see (but can’t find or afford) a dermatologist, urologist, and gynecologist. The amount of blood tests and GI testing that’s happening is insane and I’ve cycled on meds so much it’s crazy.

  • freyaslady

    I'll admit I don't currently see all the doctors i should be seeing. Right now; primary, psychiatrist, counselor, physical therapist. Should also be seeing at least an allergist, sleep specialist, probably gastroenterologist. I do also see a gynecologist yearly but that maybe should be more.

  • Doglover25006

    228d

    Primary care, two different obgyn’s, chiropractor who also does acupuncture, neurologist, geneticist, gastroenterologist, infusion center nurses, on and off physical therapists, on and off therapist, rheumatologist, allergist, urologist, need a new vascular surgeon, and not a doctor but go to a massage therapist as well. Thankfully only the chiropractor and infusion center are every week now.

  • Aeiouna

    228d

    Primary, gynecologist (though I need to find new ones closer to me, I was going to my mom's clinics), psychiatrist, and I should go back to my gastroenterologist so I'm not treating my GERD with OTC meds anymore.

  • dream6284

    Only 1 but having no insurance makes it hard for me to get in with the physicians I need

  • NickGobes75

    227d

    Endocrinology, psychiatry, rheumatology, dermatology, pcp, neurology, orthopedics, optometry…basically for every part of my body. Autoimmune diseases suck.

    i have a general doctor, a gi doctor, a neurologist, and i need to talk to my general doctor about my fainting and sleep paralysis/constant nightmares because both are becoming a problem and maybe someone can help. but ik what you mean, im 18 so im starting the process of getting adult doctors and taking care of all this myself now and its so difficult cause ive taken care of my meds in the past but the doctors is so much harder to juggle :(

    • selky

  • Rae26

    PCP, Cardiologists, ENT, Psychologist, dermatologist, obgyn, adding on a GI too.. it’s so much to handle

    Your first doctor is free. When you get to five doctors, you get a bingo! When you get to ten doctors, it's a heyyy macarena! When you get to 25 doctors, it's a blackout bingo which mean you're officially deceased. Just kidding, you get this fabulous sense of humor! 😂😭 please send help or a coma because I'm so tired. It's been 10 years and I'm so so so tired.

  • Kirky

    4 neurologists, 1 ENT, 2 Dentists, 1 Neurosurgeon, 2 Cardiologists, 3 PCPs, 2 Chiropractors, 2 Counselors, 1 Psychiatrist, 2 Acupuncturists, 2 Vestibular Rehab PTs, and 1 Pain Doctor. 4 MRIs, 2 CT scans, 4 xrays, plenty of bloodwork, constantly upping dosage of zoloft. Still can't heal my balance and anxiety issues. But there is a quote that I took to heart a couple weeks ago: "I am dying from the treatment of too many physicians."-Alexander the Great I'm now doing Tai Chi and trying to forget about Western Medicine. I think it's helping. I hope that everyone on this page finds peace too ❤️ 🙏

    Primary Care, Neurologist, Oncologist/Hematology, Ear Specialist ( deaf on one side and wear cochlear implant )also multiple surgeries on both ears, cardiologist, endocrinologist, rheumatologist. That's all of mine. And yes it is very exhausting, luckily I only have to see my ear doctor once a year now but the other are on going. Especially my neurologist due to I have epilepsy. I see her often but I have yearly brain MRIs due to the tumor I had removed in 2017. It's one of those that can grow back so we have to keep everything in check. Everyone else I see regular but they still don't have everything figured out yet enough to spread my appointments out enough.

      Forgot about gynecologist, been dealing with abnormal paps again. Done had several surgeries due to high grade dysplasia before.

  • Lew_Bear

    226d

    PCP, pain physician, pain psychologist, allergist, MCAS GI specialist, neurologist, oncologist, aquatic physical therapist, and an insomnia cognitive behavioral therapist are the ones I still see regularly.. plus I’ve seen a urologist, a cardiologist, several rheumatologists, several other GIs, and more that I’m blanking on. Most of the time going to the doctor and keeping up with treatments is a full time job, it really is exhausting

  • Deathfuffy

    Pcp and ob same person, therapist, psychiatrist, ent, and audiologist. My main problem is the therapist game. I'm on my 5th therapist in 4 years and I dislike them so much.
