So my long awaited visit with a sexual dysfunction doctor happened yday, which in my darkest days of the last 8 months I held onto the thought of seeing someone who could help, though sexual dysfunction is not my major issue but they did believe in pfs. Basically was told that my neurological symptoms could mean anything and was dismissive of my theory of my brain being affected as even if this was the case there was nothing to be done and I should think positively instead of noceboing myself with Internet forum theories as the doc really thought my problems were with depression and heavily recommended ssris and therapy. The irony of it all being that this doctor mainly deals with people with pssd and was recommending me to take these drugs even though she herself could not give out those drugs so if side effects occurred she would bare no responsibility but “reassured” me that this was rare. She said I’d been making good improvements physically and she thought my hormones looked normal and that I was best to be passed onto neurology but that I should just hang in there for another 18 months as these things usually settle. Great so another dead end. She also recommended bupriron and mirtazapine as alternatives that would effect sexual dysfunction. I’ve read enough stories on here to put me off but if anyone could offer me thoughts on whether to take any anti depressents please advise.
I imagine if I take this stuff and it goes badly with sexual sides and mental health I’ll just be given a double ssri dose and some cilias and sent in my way.
I explained to her that my neurological symptoms of tinnitus, vision problems, head pressure, headaches and my brain in general going haywire and anti depressents would do little for me.
