eddieray, I so hear you! I too am totally sick of hearing "I can't find anything wrong with you other than you need to loose weight." Never mind the fact that another doctor later looks at the x-ray and says... "you have osteoarthritis and large bone spurs." Or "hypermobility doesn't cause pain" or even "just because you score a 7 out of 9 on the Beighton scale doesn't mean you are hypermobile"

I hope you can find someone to help you find out what's going on with you and can help you knock that pain down some.

I heard this a lot the 2 Drs that knew what mine was as soon as they looked at it were both military Dr but the practice in regular clinics. They just got the training in there. I wish I could use the V A they know about RSD since it started during the Civil war. RSD has had several names through the years. I am not on no meds my Dr don't think I need them.

Eddieray, I'm glad your Niece was there to speak for you and get you what you needed for your pain. You have quite a list of diagnosis that are extremely painful. These doctors and nurses don't understand our level of frustration and anxiety when we are in that kind of pain and we just want to get out of it as best we can. When you are called a drug seeker when you're only trying to get help, that just adds fuel to the fire. I'm glad you're home. Try to take it easy on yourself and do what you need to do to heal. You'll be in my prayers for a speedy recovery. 💕🙏🏻🌻
