    What was the most disheartening thing a doctor has told you about your symptoms?

    "It's all in you head" was the most disheartening thing I heard in the early days. I needed a physical reason for my symptoms, but there was none to be found. I wasnt ready to accept that perhaps the cause of the very physical feeling symptoms originated my stressed mind and emotions. Turns out that doctor was kinda right.

    Kinda right, but.....I think most people or doctors say "It's all in your head" to mean that we are imagining our pain or symptoms. This, of course, isn't right. The cause originates in the brain (or mind), but our experience of it in our body is very real.
