Hi all Im Amy, Im from the Seattle Wa area. background: For the past 6 year or so I have been fighting with stupid drs to try to get even ONE to listen to me. I spend my time cought between not being sure which I will wake up as: hurting head to toe like I just took a ride with a Grey Hound Bus...as its TIRE. Or if I will wake up feeling as if I just ran the boston marathon all night. Ive gone to several drs. They all like to call each other and chit chat/compare notes/what ever it is they do. As a result. They all say the same thing. That nothings wrong with me, its all in my head. They tell me I have depression. Umm.. NO. If I am depressed somedays its cause I feel like _____ all the time. But mostly that makes me alittle...iratable. I also have what amounts to chronic insomnia cause no mater how I try to sleep... I still end up hurting all night. I have tried to follow the advice of web sites Ive visited and kept a journal and presented it to my dr. The last DR litterly threw it in the garbage and told me I needed to see a shrink for depression. Another one told me I needed to go to AA meetings and handed me a brochiure on Alchol Addiction...which is HYSTERICAL cause I DIDNT DRINK AT ALL, not one drink in over 12 years. Wow... thats some addiction.... Ive even been accused of just wanting pain killers. Which I refuse to take BTW. I wont even take advil for my constant migranes. If they write me a perscription (after I tell them not to) I wont fill it. Why? If I do I know they will just say that Im some kind of pain killer junkie or something. Im not though, I swear.... I HATE takeing medicine. Yeah, some hypocrondriac. I hate medicine, despise drs, and have a phobia of hospitles & needles. Wow, exactly what youd expect from a hypocondriac.... LOL **yeah right** Im so tiered of being tiered. Im so sick of hurting all the time and being told that im some kind of hypocondreiac (how ever you spell it) or something. My question is this: how do you find a dr who will at least make an attempt at 1/2 way beliveing you?? And is there ANY way to controll this pain and to give me bakc my energy?? I used to be a very high energy person...now all I have the energy to do is check my ebay store.
