So as many of you know I've had lots of problems with doctors because I'm so young and they don't see anything on my MRI or other tests that shows anything wrong.
Ok, well as you also might now I live in Iowa City and go to the University's hospital and have horrible problems with their doctors being cocky and rude and accusing me of faking my problems. After talking to many people who have told me stories about how bad the doctors there are about being cocky (because it's a teaching hospital) I think maybe I should go to a different hospital.
There's another hospital right down the road and many people have told me to go there. And actually a lot of people I have talked to have gone to the University hospital and then switched to the other one because the doctors were so mean to them.
I'm sure none of my doctors at the U of I hospital will refer me to the other one because they refuse to even see me right now because they said there's nothing they can do for me. I have to get my pain medicine from my pediatrician in Des Moines as he has been the only one who really believes me. I had a doctor in Cleveland who said he saw a fissure on my MRI but he moved and I don't know where he's at now.
So I guess I just don't know how to go about this. Should I ask my pediatrician to refer me to the other hospital? Should I go to the ER at the other hospital when I have a bad day with my back and have them refer me to someone within the hospital?
Any suggestions are welcome. (Unless you're being negative and talking down to me Wink )
