The most disheartening thing a doctor has ever told me? It's actually what the doctor didn't tell me. Out of all the ones I've gone to which include two orthopedics a couple of general physicians and a neurologist none of them could tell me anything. Not knowing what was wrong with me was almost as bad as if something was terribly wrong with me. I was afraid that I would never find out that I would keep struggling and my pain would only increase. When new symptoms would arrive they could only give me possibilities or send me to a different dr. I've kept it in the back my mind by not letting it go.
