question about diagnosis
Just wondering, how difficult is getting a diagnosis if your doctor has a predetermination that you are probably imagining your symptoms? My doctor has always taken the attitude that there really isn't anything wrong with me, since he can't find anything definitive, and now, I asked him point blank to test me for lupus, and after a minute or two he asks me if I have done reading up on it. At first I thought he might be checking to see if I understood what lupus was, and now I am thinking he is taking the mind set that I have read enough about it to fake it.
If my test results arent absolutely positive, Im pretty sure he will believe he is right. I don't want to start all over with a new doctor, but , am getting to the point where I may have to.
