Can someone confirm the legitimacy of my concerns?

Postby mansnils » Sat Aug 10, 2019 9:09 pm

For over 10 years I've had various unexplained physical symptoms. My father tries to downplay them by explaining that the body is a living thing and that things happen to it all the time and that this is all normal. The following are my chronic symptoms:

    * Throbbing tension headache / migraine
    * Severe fatigue to the point of being a vegetable 99% of the time
    * Completely shut off emotionally
    * No sense of touch
    * No sense of taste
    * No sense of smell
    * Visual disturbances where small transparent dots oscillate and give the impression of objects oscillating left and right
    * Tingling
    * Burning/Buzzing
    * Stuck thoughts
    * Unable to fall asleep

Can someone confirm that my symptoms can legitimately raise concern in my case? I believe these symptoms are not normal and indicative of an underlying illness.

This is definitely the kind of thing I'd have checked out, particularly if you're often having no sense of touch. I'm not a doctor or anything, but that would worry the heck out of me.

Are you saying you've never sought the help of a physician for any of this?

I have. The problem is they haven't done a thorough assessment of my health, they haven't put in any effort into giving me a correct diagnosis and they're ignoring all of symptoms except the depression, which they've given me medication for then and now.
