How do I get doctors to take me seriously?

      I agree with Dystonia but I also want to add that you can do two other things as well. First come prepared I always store questions on my phones note app. It can spark conversations and treatment options. Second don’t ask questions and demand what you want from them. It’s not fair to you to have to put your foot down over something a doctor should be doing in the first place but when you show up with an undefeatable attitude it can help

      If you feel like you aren't being taken seriously, it's ok to go to another doctor. The doctor is there to help you, you don't have to be loyal to just one
