@predictable Thank you for your sympathy. it started with me jumping through the hoops of a primary care doctor sending me to a psychiatrist. I tried 6 months worth of antidepressant medications that made me feel worse overall. With no background in medical but someone that has a great grasp on learning new information. I took it upon myself to read 100's to 1,000's of the long boring mayo clinic assays that nobody fully reads but I did. I started with biochemistry, then cellular biology, and so on. When I went to see the psychiatrist for a 7th prescription to try, I asked her about vitamins and the precursors to serotonin. She basically said, "none of that matters" that's when I knew the doctors I was seeing were cookie cutter doctors that belong at band-aid hospitals. So I had to research for myself. Because of my random adrenal surges that didn't seem to have a rhyme or reason, I had my cardiologist check my urine for catecholamines to exclude pheochromocytoma and I've been at this journey by myself. I have an ND right now who's work with me but it's been a slow process. I've only been seeing her for a few months. There hasn't been one doctor in charge because they either run out of ideas or my issues are just too complex. I would love to have a captain of the ship but for right now it's just me. Most of my doctors have told me I'm more knowledgeable than their students. I really don't want to know any of this stuff I just want to fix myself since none of the doctors are.
