Sarah Hyland is reaching out to her fans for support and advice about her struggle with her health issues and medical professionals.

She asked them on Twitter if they've ever had doctors that ignored their complaints about chronic pain. While she didn't go into details about what was causing the pain, she also shared on Instagram that she would be relaxing and taking it easy for the next 6 to 8 weeks.

In the image, she's on a couch with her dog and a bag of chips. She also showed a photo of flowers that her boyfriend Wells Adams sent her and captioned it, "Best boyfriend ever...yep."

Have you had the experience of doctors not listening to you? If so, how do you not tear their heads off with your bare hands? :)

Fans were supportive of Hyland telling her she should seek out younger, female doctors that would be more likely to listen and understand her problems. 

Sarah Hyland has been open about her struggle with kidney dysplasia which required her to have a kidney transplant in 2012. The disease caused her to have little control over her weight. She snapped back at internet trolls body shaming her saying, "People think that because you're in the public eye you sign up for criticism from random people and strangers...but I'm in the business because I love the craft and I love the art of it, and I love creating and evoking emotions out of people."
