It depends: I sense that you're frustrated/angry. Unfortunately medicine isn't a black/white process. There are a lot of gray areas. All of us have needed help to make a diagnosis. Sometimes we never figure it out. The body is very complicated and it can be hard to nail down what's wrong. If you've doubts then seek another opinion. Sometimes a new set of eyes can figure it out. It may take a new perspective.
