Don't expect doctors to know what they're talking about.
If something ails you do some research and analyze what it might be prior to visiting the doctor. I learned this with my dad who was being overmedicated and wasn't getting better. Did a lot of research and narrowed his problems down to a couple of things. Got a second opinion, gave my opinion, and in a matter of days he was up and feeling better. Doctors are geat people but we put too much trust in them and their default answers. Good luck. SF
