I just want to say that this day is probably one of the worst ugh first talk with x husband before that docs appointment.
I was glad that I finally saved up enough money to go to the hematologist FINALLY!!!
What did he say:
Oh I don't know where these symptoms are coming from, beta thalassemia minor is not supposed to have these severe of symptoms. Maybe your depressed or maybe it's your pcos.
PCOS!!!!!!!!!!!!! PCOS!!!!!!!!!!!! OH YEA PCOS MAKES ME SO DEAD TIRED AND PALE WHITE AND DIZZY AND UGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH IT GOES ON!!!
I am switching docs, this guy wasn't a hematologist if he wants to say that. Ya know what, why don't they do another study lately of beta thalassemia minor huh? Why don't they REALLY LISTEN AND NOT JUST BLAME IT ON SOMETHING ELSE!!!
When I got back I looked it up on my symptoms and there are tons of patients reporting the same darn thing.
I am sick and tired of hematologists saying we shouldn't have all this when there is tons of patients that say otherwise. A thousand patients couldn't imagine this all up in their heads.
