Something that: We md's should remember, is that any medical condition should always b ruled out b4 thinking "psych". All psychiatric diagnoses r diagnoses of elimination. Modern medicine can b 2 mechanical & specialized. Some mds wrongly assume "depression" or "anxiety" when they forget that our mind & body work together. Congrats 2 u 4 having found the right md who could diagnose & treat u accurately: good 4 u!
