Finally went to a dr ....

Hi Everyone, well I posted here a few weeks back, my new years resolutin swas to finally go to a dr and see what is wrong with me. Well I went last night and now I just don't know if I will go back... he handed me a form to fill out... questions...well as soon as I saw it I knew it was for depression... could he be right could all the symptoms be from depression.. I just feel crazy now... It was my first time in years to go... he has asked me to go back on monday for a physical... I haven't had one in 21 years so I guess it is time. But now I just think he thinks I am crazy and well I want to jsut forget about the whole thing.. I am really thinking about canceling.
Here are the symptoms I told him about:
*White fog over my eyes
* Blurry vision, night driving is really bad.
*I have been having issues speaking
* Fatigue.
*Feet fall asleep a lot
*When walking actually have to think about lifting my feet.
*Heavy legs.
*Very emotional.. can cry so easy I think I am pregnant!
*hearing is bad, worse at times (progressive for the last 3-4 years)
*High pitched noise in ears sometimes
*I get numb fingers and toes and pins and needles ( and down the side of my hands and feet)
*Weakness in hands
*light headed.
*Pain in my feet when I stand up after sitting for a while or sleeping. At times it is very intense.
*My legs down to my feet hurt from too much walking or standing. Not throbbing pain, constant.
*hard to concentrate/pay attention.
*People can tell me things and it is like it went in one ear and out the other... I didn't get any point, I have no idea what they were telling me.
*Pain/crampy in muscles and joints.
*Frequent Urination,
*Problems swallowing, like something is stuck at times
*Depression, Mood swings, lack of Libido.

Could this all be in my head... am I crazy... I am not a hypochondriac... I am never sick... now I just feel dumb....
Any input would be great.

I am a mental health professional and no it doesn't sound like depression. You would not have all those symptoms with depression. I hate when docs blame everything on depression....ticks me off!!!!

Re: Finally went to a dr ....

Thank you both, I am not the best at standing up for myself and now feel worse than before I went. I am going to go to the physical apt on monday night and if I feel this bda after and he simply calls everything depression I will have to build up the gull to fire him and get a new dr.
thank you both again, it means so much when others are there that understand. I have not discussed any of this with any close friends or family.. other than my husband.. of which I have talked to him maybe twice.
Again thanks
