When I visit a doctor’s office, I always have the thought that I’m the only witness to a crime that’s committed in my body. I make it a point to provide my doctor more clues and observations, so that it’s easier for my doctor to pinpoint the culprit. When we watched detective shows, witnesses often say: “it probably didn’t mean anything, but…”, and that’s when the whole scenario starts to clear. I treat it the same way when I go to my doctor.
Even irrelevant as you may think, that “little thing” can mean a lot to a discerning physician. Make sure you don’t miss out on anything even if it’s somehow embarrassing such as sexual problems, irregular bowel movements etc. Don’t forget to include your emotions. Spilling the beans is the only way to go. The doctor have heard the same thing gazillion times, so putting all the evidence on the table makes sense. Soon enough, the physician should be able to solve that medical mystery.
Just think about it like you have acted in an episode of Law & Order.
