Went to my local ER for the 15 or 16th time in last year and a half last week . Well, I went in at 4 in the morning the other day, again feeling I could die and my gastro tract was so distressed I just couldn't take anymore and remember all my other areas of pain take off when I get these "everything else takes off" pain attacks. I was also sweating so bad ( this is happening more and more and this was the worst ) I just thought again for the 16th time I could die so I went in. As soon as this ER doc came in he asked what I was there for and I told him and he said, " I see you admitted yourself to our psyche ward last visit." I said yes, ( actually I wrote down on my ER admission form that I was asking for "psychological counseling" to help advise me how to cope with all the pain) ...I couldn't take the pain anymore after 1 and 1/2 years and they said if I went in to their mental health facility they would look at me physically also which they then didn't do. It was this inducement of having physical tests run on me to look for the physical cause of all tis pain that made me agree to admit myself. I was there 1 and 1/2 days and they sent me home. Just sat around reading magazines. The ER doc then said " look, Mr -----, there is nothing wrong with you." I am going to give you two atavans and you are going to leave." Call your wife...and I don't want to hear any more about it...and he walked out. He waved his amrs in dismissive disgust...like this conversation is over. Even his little staff would ignore me if I called out for some assistance. My bladder was urging so bad every 10 mintues and I was so weak and in pain I didn't think I could make it to the bathroom. So I was calling out for a portable urinal. They heard me but ignored me. Once they were told by their boss what he thought of me I was left a paraiah in that room. Part of their method of getting you to leave is to ignore any further calls to them once the doctor decides you are a mental case. The ativan did stop my shaking but I told them the pain was still 75% as bad as when I walked in and I was still as weak. But the doctors irritated and disgusted tone was the most pronounced I have seen yet. Now I am afraid to go to our only ER at all lest I get humiliated again and again like that. No matter my 54 years of never ever going to hospitals or ER's like this...and working, raising a family, never drinking, smoking or seeing a psychiatrist for anything. Those 54 years mean nothing in these doctors summation that because they can't find anything when you come in complaining about pain, that you must be exaggerating this and this seems to infuriate them. But you had thought I was a criminal the manner in whioh I was talked to. This has happened so many times now. I just crawl out of the ER and sit on an outside bench waiting for my exhausted wife. One of the head nurses in the cardiac wing who has known me for 20 years ( our daughters were close friends and went all through school together) saw me on the outside bench as she was arriving for work and I told her about my new fibro and nerve system and feeling like I was dying feeling problems and she seemed concerned but said nothing. I told her everybody has written me off as a nut. I think she must have at least thought back to the last 20 years when nothing like this was happening in my life, but she didn't want to say anything. I am building up my courage but not yet enough energy and pain lessening to write the story of my experience with all this and shop it wround to all the news media. 54 years of normal physical problem and psychological living, then instant psyche case with daily commplaints of extreme pain, muscle weakness to the level of not being able to do a push up, nerve hyper-sensitivity and so many other symptoms...and all the while you are feeling so tortured with all this, you are constantly treated like a psych case and even angrily talked to and told to move on , especially in the ER's. This Fibro suffering and added psyche humiliation MUST BE WRITTEN ABOUT. I am not a writer, but since no one here or anywhere else seems to be writing about this and trying to get this story out...I feel this must be my mission. To leave a job and family situation where you are treated with admiration and respect and dignity for most of your life ...and then in one year to be run out of ER's by an angry, blunt and humiliating ER doc is quite a shock and humiliating nightmare. There are many many days I just can't believe this is happening. But it is. And it shouldn't be like this.
