    My Doc thinks I'm exaggerating????

    I am a 49 yo F. w/ juvenile onset diabetes (on insulin pump), my H1G or is it H1C whatever usually runs in the 7's so its ok. My brain on the other hand not so good... I shake... my body aches, told I have fibromyalgia, I'm having trouble typing because I have to keep backspacing to deleate the double letters that i'm typing. I am in so much pain - do have herniated disc's in my back and neck, a shoulder that is semi-frozen for several yrs. I wake up and can't turn over in bed and a couple times I made it out of bed and couldn't move - screamed in pain for my husband to get up and help me - practically carried me to the bathroom. I thought I had early dementia and the neurologist acted like I was an idiot! My reg. doc (my - I'm trying to remember what she is called -endoctrinologist) isn't going to believe me. I think I have Parkinson's and maybe its related to Diabetes somehow? Who is that actor??? He is my age?

    Hi cinderellaC -

    Have you been to see your regular doc? Make sure bring your husband with you to your appointment to discuss all of your symptoms - and bring in (and take) detailed notes.

    I'm not sure why you think a doctor "wouldn't believe" you?
