I am wondering if I should continue seeing my gynecologist.

She has begun making odd remarks. She has been my doctor for eight years.

Depends on what type of remarks and how she makes you feel.



I loved my NP and saw her for almost 10 years, but the last time I saw her she told me I should wean my son (2, almost 3 at the time) because he didn't need it and it was why I was so tired all the time and that I needed to suck it up and just do what needs to be done (in general life). That was 2 years ago. I have never and will never go to her again.



Turns out that nursing my son had absolutely nothing to do with my fatigue and I physically CAN'T 'suck it up' and just do stuff anymore due to a medical condition I was born with, but just really discovered this year as symptoms have progressed and more testing has been done.



Sorry... that was probably more info than you need, but it still annoys me. lol

What kind of remarks has she been making? I am all for switching doctors if they are starting to make you feel uncomfortable. You are the paying client. There is a level of professionalism that should be there.

I was just reading about C h I a r I Malformation on the Internet. I can see why you would be hooked on thinking about it. It talks about your spinal chord and where it connects to your brain. It seems similar to me to a HUGE vericose vein that I have on my right leg from having kids. I went to a doctor at my hospital to see if I could have something done about it and he gave me a bunch of reading material. It said that I could get minor brain damage if something went wrong ... like a blood clot. I said well you know I think someone would rather marry a girl with a head on her shoulders even if she does have a huge spider vein.

Please do not get brain surgery over fatigue. I have my own ss income. I have had it for 6 years. I am a single mom with ss income. It is don disability income. It is wonderful, but it is not worth getting brain surgery over it. You sound like a really nice person. There will be options out there. Hold out. Times are tough right now. Will you consider voting for my blog under Top 25 family blogs? The name of my blot on there is freshnewblog Jessica & Ezra.

Nope. I have a chiari malformation (a lot of symptoms 'mimic' cfs though). Actually diagnosed 20 years ago, but back then my mom and I weren't told anything. Started doing more research this year because my condition has declined considerably. I filed for ssi (or whatever it's called) in August, so it's pending. I'm hopeful cuz it's my only REAL option right now. Only treatment is brain surgery and I'm not really comfortable with that considering I'm a single mom with young kids.... Still doing more testing though.



There I go with too much info again. lol

Is it chronic fatigue syndrome? I have a friend with that and she collects ss disability income because of it. I nursed my son until he was four years old and it was the best thing that I could have done for him. He has moved up every grade in school. He is in the second grade. He is an amazing gymnast. He is one of those kids that is good at all sports. He makes friends beautifully. He is a beautiful red head who actually kept his red hair with little freckles gracing his nose.

Last time she said "some of us just can't help ourselves". She was probably talking about food, snacking, weightloss... It was just the timing and the way that she said it... She also said " Oh, you are at the end of your period". Which I had openly told her that before the exam. The way that she said it though she seemed displeased.
