Am feeling a little overwhelmed with health stuff. Just spoke to a specialist on the phone to book a consult and what she told me made me think they'll refer me back to a doctor. I feel like I'm being ping-ponged around. It's frustrating but also scary.

@sweetfeather5, it's stupid that they do that it's why the health care is so rubbish unless you pay them but even then some of them drag things on just to get more money, sorry your going through this.
@Free2Fly I don't know if this is a case of them wanting more money. They honestly have seemed baffled. The doctors here don't want the responsibility of accidentally misdiagnosing you, so they send you to specialists. The first one I saw thought it was an easy fix, but the treatment plan wasn't working so she was stumped and just kept telling me to come back and see her. That, plus a couple of the things she said, made me distrust her abilities, so I went and saw another. That one was fresh out of uni and diagnosed the same as the first. Frustrated, I went and saw another one and that one finally took me seriously and determined it was beyond her ability to fix so I have to see an even more specialist for a consult. This has taken YEARS! And I still don't know what's wrong!
@sweetfeather5, true there has been a lot of that too, it is worrying how doctors can still not know what possible issues could be mind you I've seen many doctors misdiagnosis things and it's rather silly that they don't seem to consider every possibility, hope you can get answers.
