We urge all doctors to take time to listen to your patients.. don't "isolate" symptoms but look at the whole spectrum. If a patient tells you s/he feels as if s/he's falling apart and "nothing seems to be working properly", chances are s/he's right!

I agree with Deb, eveyone in this forum is so helpful and yes we should be proud of ourselves. I think some of you know more than the Doctors do.
Be safe and be happy and enjoy your day.
