Called my doctor yesterday for a quick consult to see if he would be willing to go ahead and call in a prescription for the same antibiotic that has helped so much with the chronic fatigue. The doctor's assistant returned my call today saying that from the sound of the message I left that instead of them giving out a prescription, that they were going to refer me to an STD clinic instead. I asked why in the world they would think it might be an STD since I'd been battling the fatigue for almost 10 years and have been happily married (and loyal!) for that entire time. She said that from her and his nurse's experience that fatigue that clears up with antibiotics was pretty common with people with various STD. I told her that I would just wait for the doctor to call me back instead of dealing with her, but that for her to get her facts straight she should go back and look at my file and see how I'd been treated with several things by them including provigil (works great but I can't afford it) and even adderal. But she said that she'd "discussed it" with the nurse and office manager and that was their conclusion. SHe said that the doctor was still out of the office until monday but that if she liked she'd make sure he called me back. I reiterated that I'd been married for the last 12 years and that an STD was simply not possible given that I have never had any problem in that area. I asked her to review my file and see how my fatigue first started after I had gotten mono and was severely worsened after chemotherapy. She said that they were going to keep their recommendation until the doctor told her otherwise. I let her know that I was pretty insulted that this was a diagnosis made over the phone without the doctor being consulted and that they could put it in my file that I was not going back there ever again if that's how they practice medicine. She tried to apologize and set me an appointment but I declined and told her that she could put it in my file that I was going to find another family doctor due to poor medical decision making on their part. I have the feeling they don't want me as a patient any more. Oh well, I'll change doctors happily if this is how I'm going to be treated. Doesn't really matter anyhow I guess. I'll find the right doctor for me. Any of you please feel free to share your stories how you've been insulted by doctors offices.
