I'm Feeling Hopeless in Related Issues & Disorders Posted February 23, 2012 · Report to Admin I understand your dilemma,It's bad enough when doctors don't know but worse when they pretend to be all knowing and look at you as if you are a drug seeking hypochondriac. I too felt like you. it took 15yrs to get diagnosed properly. through this process I have learned a lot about myself and my body. I learned that I don't fit the cookie cutter criteria that makes diagnosis more complicated. I learned that even though my labs are normal to the medical field they are abnormal for me. I can now tell when my hemoglobin is low, by how much ice i eat. I know when I have graves disease symptoms because I throw PVC's. I know when I am in Hashimotos, because I get so depressed it is as if I fell off a cliff into a deep hole. Thank God that only happened once!. I had to fight for an iron transfusion, so that I could function and work! I had to fight for more exams that would dig deeper to enable them to find the Graves and Hashimotos Disease btw it is rare that people have both. I had to fight to have my nutritional levels checked and had to tell doctors that I don't have to be a stick to be malnutrioned! bottom line, I had to fight and I am still fighting most importantly though, I am worth it! So are you keep fighting for yourself, autoimmune messes with alot of symptoms so no you aren't crazy they are just ignorant to the unknown specialty of autoimmune related disorders hugs feel better don't give up!
