Find another doc: Your doc has to address your concerns. He can address them directly or give you literature to read and a follow up apt but not to address your concerns is inappropriate. Dr Francis Peabody, a great American physician at Harvard Medical School ended a lecture on caring for the patient with the sentence:" The secret in caring for the patient is in caring for the patient." Give your doc a copy!

Helpful to seek out a doctor who is an empathetic problem solver, is interested in you as a person, & is patient. Sometimes an answer is elusive which frustrates both you & doctor. Doctor must then compassionately partner with you in a journey to discover clues about the illness through wise use of tests & consultants, but also about what outcomes are important to you. Hope that helps
