I am hoping there is someone out there who can help me. I started feeling really sick about 5 years ago, and sought out medical help. Doctors kept saying all of my physical symptoms were in my head and triggered by psychological issues and I was diagnosed as being bi-polar. I was put on med after med that only made me feel worse and certainly didn't help. After a whole lot of reserach and advocating for myself, I went to a couple of endos who diagnosed me with Hashis/Papillary Thyroid Cancer. I am trying very hard to get reassessed for my bi-polar disorder diagnosis because I am in the middle of a horrible divorce and I need to be reassessed so I can get off these psych meds that are killing me. Does any one know of a psychiatrist in the Chicago area who is not scared to reassess another doctor's opinion. It seems that no one is willing to get involved when they know that they may be questioned on their diagnosis.
Any help would be so greatly appreciated.
