DSM3KIDZ Posted August 17, 2006 Report Share Posted August 17, 2006 As I've wrote in other posts my doc is really not helping or even caring if I'm alive. She was great at diagnostic but horrible at treatment. She belittles me everytime I have a side effect from a med. This illness is all about finding the right combo of meds for the individual and she sees us as a group and what works on one works on "all". I literally panic the night before my appointment because she is so cold. she recently make another of my POTsy friend cry. My point here is she is the only specialist in my insurance and there is one other out of network but I can't get approval.so does anyone just see a general doc like internal medicine or family doctor for their POTS treatments? and if so how do they know how to treat you if they don't know about POTS? I can only imagine a dotor telling me to go take a hike if I asked them to use their "valuable" time to learn about my illness.I have the autonomic neuropathy causing all my problems (Gastroparesis, POTS & Migraines) so I don't know if just seeing a cardiologist would be the answer? Maybe?I'm sure their are great docs out there but I really believe to find one that has a little compassion is like searching for a needle in a haystack.Does anyone have any advise on this topic?Thanks in advanceDayna Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
