Ya know dealing with the medical community and dismissive attitudes because it's not in their arena of knowledge nor do they beleive or wish it to be is so frustating. My GI guy wants to scope me, and endoscopy and colonoscopy. I told him I have been on lyme treatment of antibiotics for over a year. I told him I felt Candida was the culprit and could he check me for it?
He flat out said "no", he said if you had it that bad you wouldn't be able to sit up and talk to me now as you are....nor does he believe in chronic Lyme, or any of the vitamins and herbs , he called them "hocus pocus" . This was all said to me in my visit last week. Oh and he asked me, well how does your stomach feel? I said "inflamed" it hurts....he then repremanded me telling me I was using a self diagnosed word wrong and not to go there. Holy shit. Now I don't even want to go for these procedures. He is narrowed minded, he may know what he knows well.....but I can't stand feeling he doesn't respect my thoughts. I almost feel it's a man/women thing with him.
