Will any health care professional ever say "I know what that is"?

[SIZE=”2″][COLOR=”Purple”]After going through my tests at the hospital yesterday, I have a renewed frustration about total lack of knowledge about CIDP on the part of the health care profession. I interacted yesterday with R.N.’s, speech pathologist, radiology and a physician. If I hear “what is that “one more time, I’m going to scream, even though I can’t scream! This is what took the cake—-The physician performing the procedure comes in and I start explaining my symptoms, that I have CIDP, and then he stops me. “What is that”, so again I explain and he says he had never heard of it ; “And what doctor diagnosed that”?, like he didn’t even believe it was a real disease. I’d like to think he went home and looked it up, but I really doubt that happened……………thank you, I feel better now!……….Vicki:mad: [/COLOR][/SIZE]
