For the last three years I have been getting worse. But every time I go to the doctor he acts like I'm insane. The sad thing is I have been going to the same doctor for the last 16 years you would think he would know I was not some cry baby or whiner. I am wondering if he is just to busy to listen. Most times it seems like he just tries to get me in and out in as fast of time as he can. Back in February I went back to the doctor because my hands are hurting and my index fingers and middle fingers on both hands are turning to the outside. Not normal by any means. Well he tested me for Rheumatoid Arthritis and came back normal but the ANA test was high and he thought maybe Lupus but to come back in 6 months to a year to retest in the meantime no meds for the pain. Make sense I do not think so. Any suggestions on how to get a doctor to listen to you? Or maybe I shoulder get a second opinion. But how do I do that without offending my doctor? I am so frustrated!!!!
