Seems anyone can be a Doctor these days....

I went to the doctors today, and for the last 3 time I have been, all he has said is to:

"Rest, Drink plenty of water and come back in a few days if it has no stopped".

On all three times I went, I had a different medical problem. (dont worry its nothing major)

(serious thread, no chat thread please, kthx)

depneds what you went for.

If it's your psychological problems then there is something wrong... But the body usually sorts itself out by resting and drinking plenty of water...

No, not anyone can be a doctor, but equally they can't work miracles.

I bet to differ on the sooner.

It's no bad advice. If something's making you ill, you should really only resort to medication as a last resort. Drugs are fun and everything, but they have side effects, and these can sometimes be quite negative, especially if a drug hasn't had the time to mature and prove itself long term, and leads to horrible horrible death. Let your own body deal with stuff, it's the best way. It'll make it better at dealing with the same stuff in future, and less tolerant of any drugs put into it.

Without knowing why you went, I'd say he thinks there is nothing wrong with you and that you are wasting his time.

Then you haven't a clue what it takes to become a GP; assuming you mean former, not sooner.

Firstly you would typically need 4-5 As at Alevel (pref maths, biology, chemistry, physics or similar) after getting 10+ As and A*s at GCSE. You will need a fantastic background of medical school experience such as week long courses during sixth form, hospital visits, reading and so on. You will have numerous examples of responsibility and all other general competencies in addition to being very intelligent academically.

If you get accepted by a medical school, it will be about 9 years until you can become a medical doctor GP; from starting undergrad studies. That includes 5 years medical school, 1 year internship, 2 years in a hospital and then 1 year in a GP's office.

Makes me feel so inferior with such a strong background, oh well. I'm over it.

To the OP, you went to somebody with a minor illness and were told to sleep it off, what did you expect? Antibiotics? Surgery? Tests? Tests for what? It sounds like you could have seen a nurse to save doctor hours to be honest.

I have a very good background on nutrition/illness etc, I only go to a doctor when im baffled myself which is not very often. I went for some expert advice, not just rest and drink water

Would you rather doctors just dish out pills and waste money on tests when they obviously think nothing is wrong with you:roll:

Well no, if you went to a lawyer and asked them whether you were breaking the law by commiting pre-meditated murder and they said "yes", it didn't take them a decade of studying to answer that question.

It was expert's advice, it's just not the amazing insight you were hoping that you had illness x or disease y.

So that 9 years+ of studying and vocational study potentially saved you a lot of pain and long term hassle, goodness those silly doctors are useless are they not.

On the same wavelength I see.:-D

Some people are never happy. They would rather be told they have an illness. Then they can post it on here for so-called discussion:whistling:

I will have to disagree, the use of a plane to amputate sounds much more effective. ;)

You want a GP to diagnose a fracture without the chance of an X-ray? The GP would have told it was a suspected fracture, then passed you onto somewhere else with X-ray facilities. 9 years plus doesn't mean you gain X-ray specs.

You went to a GP and said that yoru leg took an impact during sport and it is painful in a boned area and they didn't refer you with a potential fracture? Either you're lying, not telling the full story, your GP was a fake or you saw a underqualified nurse. I refuse to believe a GP would not have told you a suspected fracture unfortunately, it's very common.

That would be a medical school question to be honest. Without the prerequisite academic qualifications they would base it on more of an all-round look at your ability and general competencies.

yes I told him about my other activities because he asked. weather he was under qualified or not I don't know I didn't ask him about that.

I don't lie either :), i got my integrity:p
