Treatment according the Lege Artis, how is it in your country and why?
Hello to everyone, I'm new here and I'd like to introduce myself shortly. I'm highly positive for chlamydia pneumoniae and mycoplazma pneumoniae for 2 years. My symptoms are: terrible and frequent dry cough attacks, partially paralized on three left hand fingers, frequent inflammation of the ear canal, dental inflammations, CFS, for 2 years. Today I just saw another doctor in Prague in hope that someone would help me but returned home pretty disgusted ... I'm disappointed and I'm just wondering ... Wondering why ... Why is this going like this in the 21st century. Why most doctors in this country treat their patients like idiots ... I'm in the mood to stop paying my health insurance because the majority of my doctors are not only able but neither willing to help me. I'll rather pay cash out of pocket to those who help... So, to make the long story short, in the opinion of most doctors I saw all my tests are negative and even though I have heavy symptoms which turn my life into a living hell, I'm healthy and not missing really anything. How is that possible that, when I told to the doctor I suffer a chest pain, he answered to me that chest pain doesn't exist because the bronchi have no nerves, and, on top of it, all my tests went negative ... That I can't suffer cough attacks because my tests are negative ... And so on, and so on ... The doctor said that one single week of taking an ATB is enough in order to kill the chlamydia and the other (the second week) serves just to ensure the treatment. The first sentence he welcomed me into his office was following: "I don't believe in existence in bacterium of chlamydia, in general ... " Can I cry or should I laugh? Why most doctors in this country don't study after getting certified and why don't they keep updated on the regular bases ...? During the so hated old regime it was mandatory for them to keep updated and the doctors were subject to getting tested every few years....Shouldn't I know better if I have any pain or cough than a doctor who sees me for the first time and knows nothing about me ... ??? Thanks God for my negative tests. Negative tests help me like a winter coat to the dead ... I'm so happy I can dance ... Amen. Next time I go somewhere to get checked, I'd like to take with me a tiny camera and record all they say and then make a documentary film about it. I would love to make public this shame of the Czech medicine ... So, I'm just thinking ... If I were the Minister for Health of this country, or someone who is responsible for the decisions like this ... would I just take away the licence from such a doctor or would I put him directly to jail for statements like that. How does it work in your countries? I would like to know ... Do the doctors all over the world look at the chlamydia like in medieval times or are they generally updated enough to know that two weeks of one kind of antibiotic is not enough to kill an intracellular parasite in which existence they don't even believe? I'm curious about your answers. Thank you in advance and wishing you fast recovery from the bottom of my heart
