What an idiot. Drs are a bit hit and miss sometimes. I had a rheumy that told me I had too many kids in too short a time (well, wouldn't you with a disease that might render you infertile and treatment that might do the same?). Apparently I just need to rest and eat more protein. (Forget that I had a list of 16 lupus related issues...)
If my fatigue was in my head, I would be one happy camper, because then I would check myself into an intensive care mental facility to get my head straightened out so I wouldn't have to feel this tired anymore. lol....
My dr said I have too many children. I just need to eat more protein and get enough sleep. (Ok so I do have five kids). The first dr I saw explained to my mum that I couldn't have M.E. since I didn't have the right disposition, I was too chirpy!
I'm with you Heather. It's such a shame that you can't rely on a health professional to even know what they're talking about. It's not fair that people have to fight to get themselves heard and then get told they're just attention seeking.....
