When do you see a doctor for autoimmune disease? When do you know to book in, make an appointment? Is it worth going to the doctor?
Well, it’s definitely worth going to the doctor. Okay. Doctors are there for the rare and the unusual and what I call the 1% or 2% of people where they really need to be there for. Because 95% of people that go to the doctor, most of the stuff’s self-limiting, but autoimmune disease is not self-limiting. You need to get onto it. So if you notice an unusual symptom, like a strong weakness on a body part or a fever or the fatigue or something unusual, you need to make that appointment. And make sure also that you probe your doctor and say, “Look, I’ve got a suspicion it could be autoimmune disease. I want to get tested for that.” But be careful about going to Symptom Finder and websites like that because there are a lot of crap. You can’t just go to a symptom website and type in symptoms and get diagnosed. You need to see a professional person, right.

So getting testing done early on, especially blood testing done is very clever. And you know yourself inside if something’s not right, if it’s weird or unusual, especially if it’s something that goes on for a few weeks and you feel uncomfortable with it. And make sure you don’t take no for an answer from the GP. If you get fobbed off then you need to go to somewhere else. But it’s easy to put your head in the sand and forget about these symptoms, but they won’t go away. So it’s worth getting checked out and then it’s all on record, it’s all tracked. And make sure that you don’t take no for an answer if you get what I mean. All right.
So that’s it. When to see a doctor for autoimmune disease? If you feel something’s not right. And if guys are watching this, I find that women tend to go straight away to the doctor. Men tend to hang back a little bit until things get really gnarly, but they’re the ones who should be going in too, but it’s mainly women who get these autoimmune conditions. So go to Google, check things out, and then go in for the appointment and don’t delay.
