I just had my 6 month appointment with my neurologist, regarding my ongoing neck issues. After this visit, it has become painfully obvious (literally!!!) that I've run out of options.
After being called into the office a full 90 minutes after the scheduled appointment time, I was seated, told that I am too young for the problems I claim to have (even though I have X-rays and MRI's supporting the diagnosis my PCP rendered), reminded that he (the doctor) is 30 years my elder and works 14 hours a days, so I should stop whining and get on with life, then told to leave.
I'm beginning to feel that either nobody believes the pain I am in, or they simply do not care.
I have visited the 2 neurologists in my area and they both go on about how young I am... so move on.
It's getting to the point to where I am beginning to have to fight depression along with the pain of the issues I have with my neck... because the doctors in my area just care about the juicy pay check they get at the end of the week. Forget the patient.
What now? I just feel like I have nowhere to turn and nobody who will listen to me. And it is the worst feeling I have ever experienced.
