Frustrated with doctors, Sarah Hyland reaches out to fans over her 'chronic pain'
Hyland also shared a photo of herself on her Instagram story implying that she's going to be taking things easy for sometime.
Sarah Hyland is finally done with doctors around her and is now reaching out to her fans and followers for help.
The Modern Family actress, who underwent a transplant in 2012 for her kidney dysplasia, addressed her health struggles on Wednesday as she reached out to her supporters about her frustrations over some doctors.
For those who are chronically ill and in chronic pain: Have you had the experience of doctors not listening to you? If so, how do you not tear their heads off with your bare hands? :)— Sarah Hyland (@Sarah_Hyland) March 21, 2018
"For those who are chronically ill and in chronic pain: Have you had the experience of doctors not listening to you?" she tweeted. "If so, how do you not tear their heads off with your bare hands? :)."
Hyland also shared a photo of herself on her Instagram story taking it easy, writing, "My life for the next 6 to 8 weeks. I'm OK with it." She then shared a pic of her boyfriend, Wells Adams', thoughtful gift: a dog-shaped bouquet of flowers.
"@wellsadams...best boyfriend ever? Yep," she wrote.
However, hearing Hyland's plea for help, a lot of people responded to her medical query.
Yes! I have an uncle who is a doctor and his medical expertise has come in very handy when dealing w/ insufferable doctors.— xoxo, Mahri (@xoxo_mahri) March 21, 2018
knowing your medical rights is what I've learned to be the most important and DEMANDING they be met.
A lot of doctors rely on patients' ignorance of rights.
I have. I try only going to female doctors now. And try to choose young ones, they tend to believe me more.— Allegra (@dudeimbleeding) March 21, 2018
I went years being told I was crazy or not really in pain- turns out I actually have six separate diseases that cause intractable pain. Now I have co-founded and run a non-profit from my bedroom that is working to protect chronic pain patients rights. #CIAAG— JAYNE (@CIAAG_Jayne) March 22, 2018
You have to be your own advocate. You have to keep saying that you don’t feel normal, or right. I was told by doctors that I didnt “look” sick for three years before being diagnosed with Lupus and Rheumatoid Arthritis at 15. Remind them that they are not in your body. ❤️— Sarah Mennell (@sarmennell) March 21, 2018
I use my education of my disease and my stubbornness to my advantage. You don’t want to meet a pissed of version of me that’s also in pain—not a girl to be messed with🙃— alexandra nicola (@2tired_2caree) March 21, 2018
YES...NOT EASY!!! I have Ehlers Danlos Syndrome Type 3 Hypermobility Spectrum Disorder & wasn't diagnosed till 43 years old. It's rare so doctors always treat me like I'm crazy...I've learned it's because they are clueless & don't know what to say. Stay strong!!!— Georgie Porgy Pudding Pie (@SusanEscobedo7) March 21, 2018
It took almost 9 doctors and 3 years to diagnose me with lupus, all the while living with chronic joint pain. Just keep talking to doctors until you find one that will listen. It just takes one! ❤️— Rae DeBrabander (@RaeDeBrabander) March 22, 2018
Keep talking to different doctors. I know it is hard with chronic pain. I dreaded changing doctors, going through the whole story of my spine injury again. I finally saw a new one & was trying not to cry. He looked at my pain med bottle and said, "Take another now, no take two"— Karen Heath Allen (@KarenHeathAlle2) March 22, 2018
