That sounds really horrible...and I figure that you must be really fed up with it by now...but in my opinion the doctors are there to help you..and i'm sure that they're doing their best to find out what's wrong. If you really aren't happy with the service they are providing....maybe you should consider asking to be transferred to another hospital...with different doctors??

Though if you do go to different hospital in the district they used the same specialist, so they no point.

Ah! Not much point then really is there...have you maybe asked the hospital that you go to to refer you to another hospital..one thats larger and has better equipment?? If you live near London....maybe see if they could refer to a good hospital there??

What do you mean, this is my local doctors and they seem to know nothing at all
Well, I assume they must know something, or they wouldn't be doctors. They're obviously trying to find out what's wrong, and if it's not a common condition then perhaps they don't have the specialist knowledge. But dismissing them as useless isn't going to help anything. I know it must be frustrating, but if their tests etc aren't getting positive answers, what can they do?

I took many many visits to 4 or 5 doctors, 10s of different types of medications, a barium meal, a breath test, loads of blood tests, admission to hospital, a visit to the gastroentologist and 6 years of suffering for them to diagnose me with an anxiety disorder. Figures. Now I'll never get better from it because they left it so long. Damn doctors.

I have seen my doctors for over two months now, with the same problem, yet they still don't know whats wrong with me. I'm sick of going in and out of the hospital to have tests and be examine to find their nothing wrong there. I wouldn't mind so much but all they do is give me painkiller (2 types) to help me, but these are pain relef. So like i said do doctors know anything or are they all rubbish?

Regards

Anne
Yes, they know a lot. You should be grateful for all the help you seem to have been given.

Doctors are crap, especially GPs, I find from my experience. I'm gonna change that

Ask to be referred to a specialist; or when your symptoms are really bad go to A&E and exaggerate a bit. Worked for me, I was admitted for 12 days and came out feeling fine

They don't know everything, and seemingly don't know what's 'wrong' with you. They're more useful for documented conditions - beyond that it's educated guessing.

Yes, but then they are overworked.

Apparently up to 10% of people die form unknown diseases...heard it in a radio program sometime ago...

Its very important to tell the doctor everything that you experience, evn if its unrelated. Most diagnosis are made from the patient's history. So when you first see you GP they'll ask what wrong and goe through more specific question about what you experiencing.

The have a list in mind of common conditions and causes, and by the end of the history the doctor should have a list of matched possibilties called a differential diagnosis. Then you have tests done like blood tests, x-rays etc and hopefully the list will be wittled down to one firm diagnosis!

For rare conditions that don't have any supportive evidence, you'd get referred to a specialist.

This is the UK system. In other countries loads of people go straight to a specialist rather than a GP.
