Anxiety rant

I'm not saying anxiety and other mental illnesses aren't a big deal, and I'm not saying that I don't have anxiety, but its frustrating when I go to the doctors to get a blood test and I tell them I feel dizzy, hot flashed and sick after a blood test and they always boil it down to anxiety,
I tried telling them that I think I feel this way because I drank water when I wasn't thirsty

(because they tell you that you have to drink enough water for them to draw blood)
But they still blamed anxiety

but then one day I decided to eat a heap of salty food the day before I had to go for a blood test, and I didn't feel sick or nothing

Its just frustrating, sometimes it feels like you could walk into a doctors office after being hit by a bus and they'd just tell you that you're feeling this way because of "anxiety"

Anyone else here ever felt that way?

I know this is like my 2nd anxiety rant in like a week
but, I dunno, I guess its just a pet peeve of mine
