Hey I'm curious to know what other patient's releationships are like with their physicians: Is it positive?, are they supportive?, do you have confidence and trust in them? Do you ever feel like your health concerns have been overlooked and dismissed with your symptoms being trivalized? If possible can you summarize your relationship, health concerns / medical conditions, length and quality of care as I know many of us in this sub forum come into contact with health care providers on a weekly basis
I've been averaging every couple of weeks for the past 2 years and just received an e-mail conformation accepting my next appointment for tomorrow morning My main symptoms and health concerns have been vascular & circulatory, gastrointestinal & digestive, and most recently mental & neurological which I'm beginning to feel desperate as I've been experincing burning/tingling/numbing sensations in my lower right leg symptoms of peripheral neuropathy leaving me to believe they're all interconnected but under the current framework of NHS's several minute consultations providing cost minimalist basic essential medical assessment which a generalist physcian's creditials and capablities is all relative and subjective to clinical guidance & pathways as well as time, cost, and resource constraints I feel pretty hopeless of an assisted/aided recovery fearing being victimized & sacrificed by the NHS edging me towards going on warpath.
I lack confidence and trust in generalist physicians as consultations are schedulled for 10 minutes often lasting for just several which they fail to fulfil their primary role as GP Consultants - to provide expert & professional advise yet beyond my intial explanation for visiting, clinical observation, and physcial examination they no longer engage or discuss undoubtedly due to time constraints continually opting for low cost options due to resource and financial constraints whilst subjecting me to dismissive, trival, prejudice & discrimitive attidudes towards my health concerns, symptoms, age, and use of online health information services when I raise concerns / suggestions about suffering from medical condition which often outrightly dismiss without supporting/disclosing clinical opinion or acknowleding or taking into account complexity of non-specific symptoms, differential diagnosis, and medically unexplained symptoms, which it's not uncommon for general pratice to encounter and dismiss a lot of patient's as stressed, anxious, depressed,
Well that's been my experince. I want to hear yours posistive or negative.. tell me everything!!! p.s - I feel stress, anxiety, and depressive thoughts are secondary induced symptoms caused by general pratice's inadequacies to clinically diagnose and enlist me on clinical pathway to recovery and feel they're not primary causality behind symptoms (somatic symptom disorder) that's why I've been posting in this forum category as they've done little to nothing but add to the list off my problems
