After reading aobut 'what the wakiest things a doctor has ever told you) and some other bad doctor situations, I was wondering if doctors really do see alot of hypochandriacs. Maybe there are people who run to the doctor for every little twich or pain they feel, saying to be tested for cancer or something along those lines. Maybe since the doctors see it alot, they really cant help it. Now, i know that there are some WAY out there stories about what a doc did or said and im not including those, but maybe I can give them a wee bit of a break here. I was wondering too if some of the stories are before the wider acceptance of fibro and cfs, or not. I am also trying to figure out how to talk, and in a way and manner, in order to make a doctor think I have all my wits about me, not some hypochodriac fly by night(or day in the exam room). Becasue i dont have a local physician, and I think it may be easier to get one. Rather than drive 50 miles.
