If you've been following any of my posts, you'll know that I believe the military has not been treating me as well as they should. A member of the medical community claims that I am being disrespectful by calling it sub-standard care when I disagree with my doctors. I feel like this individual is being disrespectful to my experiences, but for the sake of argument I wanted to see if there was an unbiased assumption that he's correct. I was diagnosed with CFS over 3 years ago. My doctors have acknowledged they know nothing about my condition. I have done in-depth research, asked appropriate questions, and suggested some tests that I believe would be helpful (using some of this community's suggestions and experiences). I know I'm not a doctor, but my doctors have ignored my questions and concerns, and refused to look into further testing or other medications when the one's I'm using aren't effective. When they admit they know nothing about CFS, I do see it as incompetence that they wouldn't refer me to a specialist or a minimum consult a specialist concerning my treatment. The most I can say they've done is look at WebMD when it comes to understanding this complex illness. So is this simple a case of disagreement with my doctors or would you consider this sub-standard care? As many of you have dealt with, I believe my doctor are disrespectful and don't believe I'm really sick or that CFS is real. I also find that this member of the medical community is being disrespectful without knowing the details or experiencing my treatment first-hand. These types of people cause me unnecessary stress and anxiety, does anyone have any advice on how to deal with these type of people?
