help urgently required to battle docs. My mother has sjogren's syndrom and ha always suffered muscle spasms however she is now in hospital with a different sort of spasm to her face which is causing great pain. she has also lost her speach and at times is very disorientated however we think it appears to have happened like a TIA docs refuse to listen and say it is purely a spasm speach has been away for 3 days now face is twisted and docs refuse to do any sort of cat scan of mri and just persist in giving more drugs which are not helping in the slightest
Battling the docs who think they are never wrong
docs are assholes
I have found that making your situation seem worse than what it really is will really make the doctors jump to their feet. Tell them that on a pain scale of 1 to 10, she says the pain is pretty much a 10 and unbearable. There are some other tricks of the trade but I can't think of anything at this moment that would apply to your situation. Dealing with doctors can always be a hassle until you make them realize that you mean business and there's a possible lawsuit hanging over their heads.
