to add to the scrap heap of useless turds. So this latest Dr I am seeing seems to want to distance herself from the CFS diagnosis. Initially it seemed like she wanted to exhaust all avenues(which is not a bad thing) before giving the diagnoses, but now I'm not actually sure that's the case. Currently I have two issues going on atm, CFS and high blood pressure. She said "it's very unusual for someone your age to have chronic fatigue" which is untrue. I'm 33, so this statement kind of shows her ignorance in this area. She also wouldn't even give me a referral to the new CFS clinic at Griffith University, which I find completely ridiculous. Every time I go there it feels like one way traffic. Like she hurries things along, it always ends up being a 5-10 minute appointment. I've been there 6 times and I dont think we've really had a thorough conversation about which direction to go for the CFS. In regards to the high blood pressure, we have done some tests for it(ambulatory BP monitor, blood, urine tests) and i am getting a referral for that. Which is why I have been giving her some slack, but to be honest, the only reason my high BP was discovered was because I asked for it to be checked at my 3rd visit. Another example is I had a list of 5 things I wanted to tested, one of which was MTHFR gene mutation, if she had bothered to listen to me she could have included it in the last blood test. I mean sure, i was getting heaps of things tested already, but why not one more thing? a gene test you would only do once, and one completely relevant to my illness. It just pisses me off, i feel like i cant have a free flowing conversation with her. 7 doctors in 2 years, completely useless... End of rant.
