I have no answers for you, but I hate it when doctors do that. I asked a doctor something, forget what, but the answer was a curt, "You don't have it." Hello? I'm asking for information, not because I think I have it.
The end result, for me, is that I am so very careful when asking a doctor anything, that I sound INSANE! "Doctor, I know this isn't any sort of problem, and I realize that there are many benign causes, and I wonder if you'd take a look at this rash?" Sheesh. And, honestly, most of the time I don't even bother to ask...
(My question might have been about Cushing's syndrome, when I asked the doctor, now that I think of it. She finally asked why I'd asked -- "I know someone who has it, and wanted to learn more" -- at which point she was generous enough to answer...)
Sorry to break in.
