Default my symptoms are real

Just need to vent.

about 4 yrs ago, I told my doctor that I did not feel well, I have dieabetes and he said it was symptoms of this. As time went on I kept telling him that I could smell and taste a strong rotten meat and it was comming from me, he dissmissed it as dieabetes and said that I should seek behaviour help. I declined for about a year.

Now my neck became very heavy, its hard to explain the tremors I had in my neck and the smell that I could only smell was very septic and now my wife was telling me that she could smell it on my blankets and pillows. I was eminating this strange smell from my whole body.

Again I told the dr something wrong but he dissmissed it as being in my head.
Last November I started to see a counselor, I told her that my problems were medical and not in my head and that I only was there on my doctors orders.

In short, January 2011 I had an ultrasound on my neck, Cancer was found in my thyroid and many lymphnoids. I had major surgery March 2011.

So now I am complaining of sever digistive problems. I have gone from 230 lbs to 195 in less than 5 weeks.

The doctor is telling me its in my head. How can this be, when my symptoms are real.

I see myself dieing, my flesh is changing, I am so weak.
I need to hang on to the walls of my house to walk around. I dont want to be here anymore. I just want the doctors to hear me.

You need to find yourself another doctor.

I often hear that when people have cancer, they can actually smell it (and usually animals can too).
I am sorry to hear about what you had to go through. But I can totally relate with the "in your head" comments. They make you feel even crazier. I mean, we should KNOW our own bodies? right?
If I were you I would demand for your doctor to do something about the digestive problems. If they don't know how to fix it they should send you to one that can.

You shouldn't have to suffer needlessly because it's someone "opinion" that its "all in your head".

This is why I don't trust doctors. It's unfortunate that you have no choice but to deal with them, but like DoubleRainbow said, you need to find a new doctor. It's YOUR life and YOUR health, don't let them brush you off or make choices for you.
