I agree. I really do. My Doctor on the other hand keeps urging me to rest, drink plenty of water etc. Pretty hard to do when your already drinking nearly 4 litres a day...
I've mentioned some of the nastier symptoms such as smelling of ammonia/cat piss and the man basically didn't even acknowledge what I said! I think his response was "Hmm". He did do some blood tests a few months ago and told me everything came back 'perfect' as far as I know he tested white blood cells, testosterone, cholesterol and kidney function. At least that's what he said. Also my doctor refuses to do more blood tests because he says that nothing new could have developed since the last set of tests. It's really very frustrating and I'm considering changing doctors.
I'm also pretty sure I'm being treated this way because I have generalized anxiety disorder (I'm not treated for this - prefer the exercise route to tranquilizers myself!) I basically think that because of my history of anxiety, he think's I'm just being a hypochondriac.
I'm actually very disgusted by the healthcare system in the United Kingdom now. It's a complete joke. They just treat everyone like cattle, prescribe anti-biotics and send them on their merry way.
Was hoping you folk would know something about this, but I guess it's not normal even in bodybuilding circles.
