Phyllis, I am lucky that I work in integrative a wellness center. We are always thinking outside of the box. I do my best to answer ALL questions not answered by the doctor. The doctor I work with is an EXCEPTIONAL doctor. He is an OB/GYN and he spends as much time as he can answering questions for hormonal women! He is great at don't get me wrong, SOME doctors are trying to help people. Unfortunately, my anemia has both of us scratching our heads. I lie when I go to the doctor and don't tell them that I am a physician, too. I absolutely hate it when they talk down to me and withhold information from me. I simply want an answer to why I am anemic. I eat organic, take vitamins, get IV vitamins weekly! I even took RX iron for over a year - and my iron continued to drop. It is so hard to compassionately listen to people tell me how tired and run-down they are when I can hardly drag myself out of bed in the morning. My family is sick and tired of hearing about how sick and tired I really am. (I am laughing while I write this!) A patient was telling me how her family doesn't listen and blah, blah, blah, and that she joined a medical health board and writes with other that have her same condition. Actually, I thought "what a wonderful idea!" I used to think that these message boards were for people who wanted to whine about their condition. Now I know that information and support is being exchanged. What a concept! Take care.
