I'm seriously thinking that I have a major chronic illness but no doctor will take me seriously because of my age and gender. What can I do?

One suggestion is to keep a journal of your symptoms day-to-day, so when you visit a doctor, you can show them the record and emphasize that your concerns are real and consistent. Additionally, seeking out doctors who specialize in chronic pain or chronic disease management may be helpful. Advocating for yourself and being persistent in seeking help through various specialists and second opinions can also increase the chances of finding a doctor who will take your concerns seriously.
