Something I have found very useful is to keep note in my private journal of health improvements I've seen when they happen. Then it's there in black and white to go back to and read any time the sorts of doubts you describe crop up.
I notice that my thoughts are very habitual and repetitive and I don't have to believe them or take them seriously. Sometimes it's hard to dismiss them -- they keep coming back -- but I can always question them.
I got a lot of help with handling troublesome thoughts by reading the book Loving What Is by Byron Katie and Stephen Mitchell.

Just found your journal. This is the same condition as Phil Mickleson (the pro golfer) has. Wondering if he has ever heard of Dr. McDougall? Someone should tell him!
Blessings on your journey.
Looks like this is working for you.

I was shocked to have that experience with a resident (med student) at an appointment this year. It literally made my day! There's hope!
And for now, progress is progress, whether your doc believes it or not!
Blessings to you,
