So sorry to hear about your problems, and hope that you are feeling better at this point. First, it is important to develop a good working relationship with your doctor
. If you feel that your doctor is hard to get a hold of, then it is important to understand if there is something that your doctor is missing or if it is something that you are missing. For example, sometimes the doctor will not understand your concerns and may be missing a medical problem that does require intervention. While this is (fortunately) rare, it is possible and it does need to be discussed with him or her. That's why it's good to have good communication with your doctor. On the other hand, it is also quite common for patients to be very concerned about their health when their problem is something that will take time to sort itself out and does not require regular intervention. Time is one of the best diagnostic (and therapeutic) tools a doctor has for conditions that are not emergencies--even if it feels like he or she is not answering you quickly. Again, please continue to work with your doctor to get the help you need.
