How do you get doctors to take your mystery symptoms seriously?

      If you feel like your doctor isn’t taking you seriously, I definitely recommend trying to find a new one! I’ve been through many doctors before I found one that actually listens and accommodates me. I’ve found that people who specialize in my specific diagnosis have been the most helpful.

      I saw almost 15 different specialists before I found doctors willing to take me seriously (and I was very ill at this point and completely non-functional). The first doc to take me seriously was also the first female doctor I saw (my cardiologist) who thought my issues possibly had an environmental cause (turned out to be toxic mold) I then did a bunch of research and found a functional medicine doc in my area who is great and helped reverse my issues. I don’t see any conventional docs anymore tbh, as they weren’t able to help me. I was often ignored / gaslighted but them as well. The generalist that referred me to the cardiologist also didn’t take me seriously until I bought an at home EKG machine and recorded my heart rate spikes and arrhythmias
