Re: Chronic all over muscle pain, joint pain, fatigue and headaches

I am so sorry that you went thru that humiliation. He has no clue how to treat patients with compassion and respect, and use his brain and training to check out the facts instead of making judgmental assumptions! He will eat his words when your labs come back, and then you can give him your opinion before you leave and find another Dr. I hate to say it, but there is so much gender bias against women and dismissal of meaningful symptoms, it makes me irate. Don't think for a minute this is all because you weigh too much. That doesn't cause your wrists to hurt! Be sure to get copies of your results to take to your next Dr. I hope you get help soon.
