Im suffering real bad and i just dont know what to do. Along with DP/DR i also suffer from diabetes and hypertension and a herniated disk.

I went to the Dr. today after a week of sitting in bed and trips to the ER for my back and leg pain. I was told my blood pressure was 210/124. I told the Dr. im suffering from extreme panic and anxiety. He said "when" I said RIGHT NOW MAN!

The Dr. asked my "Why a man of your age should have this is beyond me" WHAT A DICK. I tell you i hate Dr's

So now after all this pain and panic and more i was given a supply of 12 xanax and something for my hypertension and a SSRI. I WONT take the SSRI because the fear alone of the side effects will make me have a stroke. Ill just stick with my Buspar and only take the xanax if i feel like im going to freak out.

BUT the worst part is the pills for the hypertension have a bad reaction with the ibuprofen im taking for my pain. This is just to much. Its like i cant win.

To make things EVEN worse if that can happen. My insurance declined an MRI i need for my back.

I just need some kind words to help pick me up in the dark.. dark time.

I'm really sorry. I don't really know what to say... but I've dealt with my fair share of stupid doctors. Last fall I was "diagnosed" with diabetes after a random blood sugar reading of 216 and they put me on a diet as if I had type 2 and didn't investigate things further. Then they told me later in the year that I didn't really have diabetes. It seems all the doctors I've seen for my diabetes have just wanted to send me away as quickly as possible. When I first started having symptoms and had lost 15 lbs, they wrote me off as anorexic (even though I mentioned diabetes might be a possibility), so when I was sent to IC (after demanding a blood sugar test) with DKA and a blood sugar level of 687, they said to me, "When a young white girl comes in with weight loss diabetes is NOT the first thing that comes to mind," and kind of laughed at me. I was so pissed off. But yeah, diabetes sucks ass. If you haven't tried them... get some archway sugarfree cookies. They are awesome.

FIND A DIFFERENT DOCTOR!!! i can't stand doctors like that. i just hope that he didn't make you feel bad about the fact that you have anxiety. i mean, you didn't choose to have a panic attack, geez! the nerve of that guy.

Spaceplex, I'm sorry to hear that things are bad for you at the moment. I wish there was something I could say. Definitely change doctors. I got so sick of the jumped up doctors I was seeing, I decided to change and I'm so glad I did.
I would send you a hug if I could.. not that you'd want me to hug you!
