How are things like chronic pain, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue or any other chronic condition for that matter, supposed to be adequately addressed in our doctor’s visits? When we are only given 15 minutes and a giant computer (or tablet) sits between us and the doctor, it just seems like a losing battle.
Chronic conditions, ESPECIALLY, autoimmune conditions require time and a doctor’s full attention, both of which are on short supply in our current clinic environments. This is a big problem that will, ultimately, require big solutions, but there are things you can do, right now, to work within the system we’ve got, to get the most out of each appointment. The video above talks about things you can do to prepare for your appointment so that you are moving FORWARD and not just in circles.
Please let me know what you think and if you have any other tips that could help us all as we try to make our medical system work for us!
