I waited for quite some time to get a medication prescribed that I assumed was for the neuropathy in my arms, this one can also be used for depression. I figured I' give it a try. Anywho, I never got it signed off by the doc, and when the pharmacy finally got a note from my doc, it said that the medication is prescribed for depression (not neuropathy) and POSSIBLY BIPOLAR! (I have no problem with bipolar, but I DO have a problem with misdiagnosis)I was stunned and got really upset! I have a severe case of PTSD, and clinical depression, but that is not anything new and something I managed to handle without medications, just like mom,,,LOL! Anywho, last I saw him I had desided to "vent" my frustration and let him know how I really felt physically. It was apparent that he didn't realise this, and I only met him once. This led him to believe possible CFM, and he has referred me to a rheumy for a final diagnosis. This makes me think the idea to vent (not yell) but bawl and look as miserable as I felt for once (in a nice'ol flare!) was a bad idea with this doc. Gosh! My PTSD presents itself strongly, especially when it comes to building trust, and that can probably be misinterpreted. After those years of not being heard by docs, who wouldn't be reserved anywho? I called my counselor, and also asked the psyciatrist that diagnosed me with PTSD to give a statement about my diagnosis. My counselor can let him know who I am, since she have seen me for 2 years now. She never seen anything remotely close to BP. I am so mad! trust issue damaged again, now what?
