Enough is enough

I'm in with Elizabeth and the rest on this. It's just stunning to read your posts ... it's the same or worse for several weeks now? a month? On this board, at least that, but longer for you before you found us.

Not knowing the doctors you've seen, this may be unfair, but I keep getting the feeling that no one is taking you seriously. It sounds like that old typical male doctor diagnosis for a woman -- "hysteria" -- and that your discomfort, your symptoms, your pleas are not being accepted for what they are. Maybe a trip to the ER, getting a work-up from some docs who (a) don't know you and (b) don't have the leisure to let you wallow in pain while they wait around to see what happens -- maybe that will be the change in perspective, the breakthrough, that you need. I had a slowly worsening drug interaction that my gp, my pdoc, and my resident intern (girlfriend) all missed, and only my therapist seemed to pick up on. It accelerated to a crisis in a few hours, after 6 weeks of build up, and thank God I was at my therapists' when it happened. She took me in to the ER, and the docs on call there saw immediately what the others missed, perhaps because of the gradual build-up in symptoms.

Anyway, go! Get someone to take care of you now. I hope your ER experience is even more helpful than mine was to me.
