Is there a Doctor in the House?

Why are there no investigative Doctors anymore?

If patients don’t fit the standard ‘symptoms and rules’ that medical professionals are taught about in the medical journals, they are abandoned and left alone!

Recently a story has been made public in the news regarding Ant McPartlin of the double act Ant & Dec.
We all know and love this comedy duo, but many of us were shocked to find that Ant has admitted himself to rehab, due to being addicted to prescription medications!

This addiction was all because he had a knee operation that didn’t go well, resulting in him being in constant pain.

The reason I am mentioning this is that I think it’s terrible that doctors think that they can just ply us with painkillers, and forget about us.
We have no investigative doctors anymore. They don’t fucking care in all honesty!
They don’t want to find out why we are in pain, or what’s causing our problems and just want us to go away.
I know I’m not the only one that thinks this, and wishes for a doctor like Hugh Laurie’s character in ‘House M.D’.  Now that is a Doctor! I just wish he wasn’t bloody fictional!
I remember seeing one particular episode (my fave) … It was about a young girl who had had a car accident previously and had to live in a sterile environment, in order to protect her heart. One day her boyfriend snuck in and they had sex. She immediately went into anaphylactic shock. No one could work out what was wrong with her. How could she have an allergic reaction when she was in a ‘clean room!’

Was she allergic to her boyfriend’s skin or semen? 
Had she eaten anything? 
What was wrong with her!
After numerous tests and scans, nothing was found!
Then in the final moments, after suffering paralysis in her legs and arms, on the way to the emergency theater, House suddenly, and very comedically, drops down and looks between her legs!
He finds a very small tick that had been living in the girl’s vagina! She had tick paralysis. Her boyfriend had gone through the grass before he climbed through her window and transferred the tick via sex.
Unbelievable, but in my opinion, this is how medical professionals should be. I find this episode of House, more believable than standard medicine is.
There is no detective work with Doctors or consultants anymore. It’s like they hate their jobs and their patients. If people don’t present with the exact symptoms that are listed in the medical journals then Doctors lose interest.

Sorry, miss we don’t know what is wrong with you, have some painkillers or some anti-depressants!” 
Izabella Wentz who is also known as The thyroid pharmacist and very renowned in her field as the director and producer of The Thyroid Secret explained this really well. She said that Doctors nowadays practice “the stone in the shoe” medicine. Basically meaning, if you go to a doctor now sitting a stone in your shoe and say it hurts, they will give you a plaster or painkillers. They won’t tell you the most obvious answer. Remove your shoe and take the stone out!  They don’t care about finding the the root cause of our problems.
In my honest opinion, I find it really concerning that more and more young people under the age of 30 are being diagnosed with autoimmune diseases at a frighteningly alarming rate.
Why is this? 
Could it be all the vaccines we were given when we were little?
The mercury in amalgam fillings
The fluoride we are forced to drink, that is plumbed into our natural drinking tap water.
Or is it a combination of all of these things?
On a personal note, I really wish Ant McPartlin all the best in his recovery. I am sure he has a good team of people around him. Good Luck from The Thyroid Damsel! You’re not alone. We all understand how you ended up in this position and we fully sympathize.
