Is it normal?

What specialists has everyone seen?

Every time I go to a new healthcare expert I get referred to someone else.

I see a rheumatologist for fibro, neurologist for vertigo, headaches, and small fiber neuropathy, and internest for general physician. My old gp sent me to specialists for every little thing. I thought that's how they stay in business. But my gp now doesn't do that.

I've been referred all over the place although so far I've only been seen by a Rhuematologist and discharged by after a 2 min examination and 2 min discussion of my symptoms. Waiting for a pain clinic appt.
They tend not to refer quite so often now, specially as referrals come out of their budget

Lol, in the past 9 years I've been put under almost every specialty there is, including some I didn't know existed. It's easier for me to say who I'm not seeing because I can't remember all the titles. Thankfully I've not seen a cancer specialist, but I forget their official title.

My GP and an Internist who is also a cardiologist. The Rheumies I first saw misdiagnosed me and we're useless.
