I haven't been to a doctor for quiet a while now. Last time was for a visa anyway. Common knowledge tells me that I am dead wrong, I should be going at least every year. But then, there is nothing wrong, no pain, no nothing. And doctors can really freak you out for every heart beat. Tell me your experiences and advices.

I guy I work with started having stomach problems, thought it was due to stress, finally went to doctor. Found out he was a diabetic, and has suffered a lot od damage due to it not being treated, he has numbness in his hands and feet and visual problems. He had not been to a doctor in 5 years. The stomach problems were caused by the diabetes as well.

Me too i haven't been to a doctor for a long time, i rarely visit the doctors. When ever i fall seriously ill than i go to a doctor for check up and everything. But its very rare as i think my health is ok, but people say that we should visit doctors monthly and get our body checked up. What i think is that its wise to visit a doctor atleast once in three months or so, even though i don't do that. We never know what our internal mechanism is going through so its always nice to nice doctors when ever we get time or when we think that we need to see one.

All my life I have been healthy, never been anything wrong, never went to a doctor, but now a little older I find I have been going quite a bit lately, I must be honest I don't have a lot of faith in a lot of doctors although now I have found a good lady doctor who so far seems good, she at least likes to listen and ask questions about my life and trys more natural things first if she can...
