...of my time, energy and $25 co-pay. Nothing is going to get resolved with this doctor because he is convinced that his way is the only way.
I can go to the health-food store and ask for their help, but I should tell him what I'm taking. (What's the point of that, after he admitted that he knows of one supplement that "might" help me, but doesn't know the dosage?)
Other than that, my problem is within the realm of normal, so I should consider myself lucky that this is so. He grants that it is the "sucky" (his word!) end of normal, but still normal.
