So I've been having terrible anxiety, because every appointment I've been to lately has lead to zero answers. I leave everytime with a new referral, a half ass diagnosis, and more questions. So is there anyone who can relate to this and/or have a story to share about their experience with things like this. I'd love ones with happy endings please lol

      Sorry to hear that. I hope you get some answers soon. I know it can be frustrating and exhausting, but you are doing exactly what you're supposed to be doing. Just take it one step at a time

      One of the last doctors I went to laughed me out of her office. I can't in scared and worried for my health. The nurse was sweet and amazing I thought I would actually get some help. Not even give minutes of the doctor begging in the room she had called me dramatic, laughed, told me there's nothing she can do for me, and said have a nice day

      I definitely relate to what you're going through! Spent almost five years getting tossed around to different doctors, being told my case didn't make sense and that they didn't know how to help me. When I asked who /could/ help me many of them didn't know because they didn't understand what was wrong with me. I finally got some answers last month after going to the Mayo Clinic, something I feel very grateful to have had the opportunity to do. Definitely recommend going somewhere with a team approach like that if you're able or even just somewhere other than your local doctors if travel is an option for you - my cardiologist back home doesn't understand my new diagnosis (ME/CFS) and seemingly had never heard of it, probably why I was never properly diagnosed or treated all those years. After talking to some friends and family, they all agreed that the doctors in our area aren't the greatest and that the only worthwhile place to go for serious issues and answers was about 2 hours away at a well respected university hospital It's a tough and frustrating journey but don't give up, eventually you'll find someone who can help you! Just keep looking and do the best you can to manage your symptoms in the mean time. Unfortunately a lot of us have been there and we're all here to support you! I hope things go better for you in the near future
