New Dr was a jerk.

I have PTLS. I've been waiting 2 months to see a specialist. In that time I was rescheduled twice. I finally got in today after a four hour wait.

The moment the guy came in, he had written me off. He said ptls is fake and all my symptoms are psychosomatic. Fake symptoms from having been raped years ago. Never mind that I was fine for four years after rape and these problems started when my period resumed a year after getting my tubes tied.

So, he did an ultrasound... Was SHOCKED that I asked to insert the wand myself, and then did a manual exam. He inserted 4 fingers for the manual exam. Crazy. Fucking. Painful! Then proceeded to tell me my symptoms are in my head and offered me a shot to shut down my pituitary gland and induce menopause, knowing that the side effects include full body pain, which i already have,.and its not safe for breastfeeding.

I'm so frustrated. I mean, wtf?? I just want some answers, not to be treated like I'm making it all up :(

Wow what an asshole. I probably would have told him that too. When it comes to pain I'm almost certain the patient knows their own body. He can't tell you what you don't feel if he doesn't feel it. Drs like that piss me off.

I don't know. I'm going to try to get in with my regular OB next week.

He doesn't believe I'm not feeling it... Just that its cu I've been raped. I'm happy to say I ripped him a new one, as did my DH

He wants to shut down your pituitary gland?! Does he even know what he is doing?!
