I hear your frustration and pain and concern. Sounds like YOU know what you need, and I would try to find a doctor who will treat you with the way you need and want to be treated. Yes, at this point too many doctors do not really care about the patient's day to day needs and symptoms on an individual level. So, I would hope that you could still reach out and search for other doctors who would help you in the way YOU know you would be helped best at this point. Stay smart and informed for your own health and life's sake. :)
