i dont trust drs anymore...
« on: March 12, 2014, 07:01:50 PM »
It seems like im wasting so much time and money going to different drs. I had eye pain, headache, dizziness, ear ache for the past month. The first dr said its eye inflammation and prescribed me NSAID but it didnt help. The second dr said i need to wear my glasses but that didnt help. The third dr said its chronic headache and prescribed me prednisone but im still having pain. The fourth dr said its allergies and im taking allergy meds but its still the same. I dont know what to do anymore cuz im scared it could be brain tumor but none of the drs want to refer me for a ct or mri

Hi chunkymonkey,

Sorry to hear you are suffering and not getting answers.

In the past I too had seen different doctors for the same symptoms....it's a roller coaster!  My suggestion to you, and I do this for myself, if stick with ONE doctor and if what he does for you does not help or the symptoms persist, then go back to that same doctor.  Each doctor has their own way of diagnosing us and ruling things out, so you have to stick with ONE doctor and let them try a thing or too, and then perhaps they'd be more willing to send you for more testing if you don't get better.  It's not often that a doctor will send you for a CT scan or MRI at a first appointment for headaches and dizziness.

I wish you the best!  Keep me posted when you call and get that appointment!

Hi chunky. I too have been going thru the same symptoms for 3 weeks... Constant headache everyday, ear and eye pain and nausea. I've been to my gp twice, an eye Dr, a neurologist, and an ER Dr. None will give me a brain scan because they say my symptoms don't warrant one. It is frustrating.

every Dr I have seen have all said its either sinuses, tension, stress or migraines. Next is an ent.
I guess we have to somewhat trust in these drs since we have seen so many and all don't think we need a scan! None think its anything sinister.

I have known a number of people with brain tumor and all of them had progressively worsening headaches.
