Does anyone feel like when you are talking to the doctor that even though you are truthfully explaining your symptoms that the doctor is going to get mad or accuse you of lying? Everytime I go to a doctor I get this feeling and I can't get past it. It's making it hard to motivate myself to even go to the er in an emergency!

      Oh my gosh same especially cuz I’m so young 25 they think it’s not as bad as I say or I’m too young for certain conditions. Be stern and know what you feel is valid, at the end of the day the doctor works for u and is suppose to help you. Let them fill that role and you/your symptoms matter.

      I always bring someone with and they usually are better. I went undiagnosed with cutaneous t cell lymphoma for about 9 years because of that

      It’s perfectly understandable for you to get this way because some doctors definitely don’t agree with what you are saying your symptoms are and they try to gaslight what you are saying we’re trying to say you’re only experiencing this because of this and don’t really want to hear you out so it’s perfectly acceptable that you feel that way

      Don't worry about what they think- you know your body- My Doctor wants me to take all of the prescriptions that he subscribes, but I can't take the staton meds,they make me have sharp shooting pains,so I only eat a small amount of organic meats, avoid all wheat products- which causes cholesterol build up.I hope you get better

      I don’t feel like they will think I’m lying … I just struggle with remember to say things and I forget to mention certain symptoms until after 🤦🏽‍♀️
