I have always suffered from depression, few suicide attempts and every day is a dark day, i was diagnosed with hypothyroidism 10 years ago and osteoporosis, 2 years ago i was diagnosed with fibromyalgia and sent to the pain clinic after many attempts with different meds to stop the pain and cramps (they left me unable to move, i lost my job through this as i was a phlebotomist and cramping while using a needle wasn't good so the nhs dismissed me on ill health, a few months ago i had to see a orthopedic surgeon and i had a break which didn't heal, arthritis and a bone spur so i needed surgery, the pain clinic said he couldnt help me but he would refer me to a psychiatrist !!! here is where the confusion starts, i spent an hour with him and a student, he spoke to me for 30 mins and asked me questions such as "does the tv speak to me" it does not, am i suicidal today, i'm suicidal everyday, do i see things or smell things to , yes i do, he then went on to tell me i have anxiety and i'm clearly having flash backs from traumatic events !!! i told him no i don't sleep due to pain and have to change my sleeping position every 30 mins, his reply "yes thats anxiety" !! he then went on to tell me the rheumatologist who diagnosed my fibromyalgia was wrong and there is no such thing, and that my dr's who have been treating my hypothyroidism for 10 years with a daily huge dose is also wrong and there is nothing wrong with my thyroid, he then went on to ask me did i really really need foot surgery !! and asked why i am also under maxo facial surgeons which is actually my dentist in the local hopspital due to my treatment with bisophosphates ( takes the calcium out of the jaw bones), he also questioned why i had throat surgery and was that also really needed ( i had a parathyroid tumor and salivary tumor) he has referred me to the ptsd team now, but in all honesty he had made me feel 100 times worse, do you think he was wrong in his treatment ? and the things he said and should i report it, i'm so confused
