Default Feel like Doctors are dumb

Okay at this point I can't help but be light hearted and just laugh at some of the doctors. 2 years ago my doctor tried saying that I was depressed so prescribed me antidepressants. I didn't take them. Next I said my illness was causing socially anxiety. next he prescribed me anti anxiety meds. Now and says it wasn't anything like that and now I have ADD. Just ridiculous. I am not takeing any of this crp. I have a good personality and don't feel the need to mess it up by taking brain meds. The Fibro effects me enough. Why should I let my doctor get me down by basically pointing out that my fibro is a joke and that it is in my head. Well lucky for me he is signing off for the disability. Yippy! I can get this appeal on the road and maybe not feel as much stress as when I started these doctors appointments. 7 years of it.... I may not be free of the pain but I am free of the stress caused by others. Deep breaths

I have been surprised by my pain management doc's attitude. He is very compassionate and helpful. But, he was very fast to prescribe an anti-depressant. I took it as I was quite desperate. It did mess with my brain; no concentration, focus. I couldn't understand anything I read! I went off them-after telling him -and am mentally much better. And yes, I'm in much more pain.

On the other hand, I am reading as much info I can and trying to help my doc. find some solution. But yes, most docs done care much, esp. if you are "difficult".

Glad you can come to some humor and peace about your situation. Take care.

I at that point probably am considered Difficult. The only real problem I have is that I don't like putting things in my body if I don't need to. This doctor is continuously trying to get me to take something. That and they really don't actually want to listen. Its all about getting us in to get us right back out again. Sometimes I feel like I am being pushed. I have my specialist I have been seeing for my Fibro. Probably the best. He listens to what I say and he doesnt try to just give me a hypothetical prognosis. He sees the whole picture. So when I leave his office I dont feel cheap skated. But with my Family doctor. The one Im complaining about just doesnt help me in any way. So saying I needed antidepressents for my fibro. just bull.. Yeah I have to kind of make fun of the bad ones. If I didn't and took it overly serious I don't think I would be doing as well as I am. And that I am saying with it not takeing complete control. It was like that before and I don't want that to happen again

That and I know what its like to be alone with things. And since being on here reading what others say. It tells me it is not just in my head.

And thankyou for your reply! I forgot to mention. I am glad you are doing better. The pain is bad but try not to let it take to much of your life. I have been trying to change myself and how I perceive things. and this for me is a good turning point! Have to enjoy the days that are good and try to turn around the bad days.

Antidepressants are used for treatment of fibro. Not because you have a mental illness, but because they work on the areas of your brain that have to do with pain. New research is showing that our brains are wired differently. So, it is kinda in your brain, but not in your head. Wishing you well.

Hmm yeah sounds about right. Hello Loftpat. Actually my problem is that he didn't want to help me the first day I walked into his office. He immediately put it as that I was depressed instead of trying to actually figure out whats wrong with me. I tried anti depressants long before I figured out I had Fibro and it had nothing to do with it. Instead my doctor is a jerk and didnt want to do anything. One day I went in and said that I demand a specialist. For years he told me I was crazy and even after seeing a specialist..He still thinks Im crazy. So if I can't help but laugh at him for being stupid then Im not going to stop myself. Plus I was talking to someone that recently saw him. A Man...He told the doctor he gets really bad headaches.. The doctor said Do you work with women?
Like really wowwww. It just makes me not like him more.
