eyes rolling Maybe if ppl were more specific with their symptoms and what's going on with their bodies and actually TALKED to their doctors they'd get a diagnosis much sooner!
I had a persistent cough and various other symptoms in January. Someone mentioned pneumonia was going around, so we got online and looked up the symptoms for pneumonia. I had most of them.
I made an appointment w/ my doctor who saw me that day and when I listed all of my symptoms IN DETAIL, he was able to properly diagnose me w/ bronchitis and prescribe me with an antibiotic.
I am the LAST person you will see volunteering to go see the doctor. I am a total hippie. BUT I know when natural remedies no longer work or when I need to see my doctor.
Doctors in general are not the evil horrible beings ppl make them out to be. It's typically the PATIENT who isn't crystal clear with their doctor about their symptoms or personal health choices.
