This is exactly what I want to say to the jerk of an endocrinologist that saw me last month. He came in, told me he didn't think there was anything wrong with me, but he could run a blood test if I want him to. I wanted him to.
It took a month (MONTH!) for them to get me in to have a simple blood test done (sigh), but I am so glad I told him I wanted him to run the test. He called while we were on vacation a few weeks ago to tell me that my test came back abnormal (SEE??? It's almost like I know my own body or something). It took a lot of self control for me not to say anything snarky when he called.
So, I am going in on Monday morning for more testing. I'm kind of hoping that this will come back abnormal, too so we at least have some clues about what the heck is going on.
Since I don't have the guts to say this to Dr. Craphole, I will vent this here. Sorry. Feel free to stop reading now.
You know what? I TOLD you something was off with my hormones. I have lived in this body for 35 years... I kind of know it well. As you know (if you took the time to read my chart, which I doubt) I have other hormone issues so this is not new to me. Just because my body isn't doing what your books tell you it should when something is wrong doesn't mean that there is nothing wrong with me and I am imagining things. I am NOT crazy. I am sick. I hope that in the future you will take the time to listen to and consider what your patients are telling you... though I doubt you will.
Will keep you posted.
