Re: Weird pain that moves around my leg
You know, I told my med doctor the other day that I had legs aches that haven't gone away and started right before my period last week. He asked me if I had heard of Somatoform Syndrome. What my understanding of it is, that it's what doctors call it when people have mysterious pains, etc. and have no reason for it. But I am also getting the idea that it's in the hypochondria class. It really makes me mad when he discounts my side effects from SSRIs and now this! He acts as though I am crazy and making it up; like I am trying to focus on my health too much. Well I wouldn't focus on my leg aches if they weren't THERE! I went home crying and cried when I got there too. It's just all overwhelming and scary.
Anyway, my point is......listen to your body, especially if it's persistent. You know? As for my leg aches, I don't know what it is and I'm scared. Can't afford dr. tests, or even a visit at $80 bucks just to get in there to SEE him.
