After 3 months and seeing 4 different doctors that I will never go back to. I was able to get back to my ‘old’ primary care physician. I was so happy when his office called and said they just finished signing up to take my insurance and when would I like to make an appointment.
March 3rd. It was really nice to walk into an office and know what to expect. To know the doctor I was going to see would not think I was a total fruit loop when I told him what I thought and how I felt. I will re-phrase that to he would tell me when I was being a total fruit loop.
Anyway, the appt was good and my new ‘old’ doc confirmed (mostly) that the other docs were a little warped in the medications they were giving me to control my BG with no solid bloodwork and that my blood pressure was not a little high but off the charts (180 over something).
With the diabetes he took me off everything I was taking and convinced me to start over from the beginning with the metphormin. Sent me for the normal blood work panels, he didn’t blow me off about the c-peptide or GAD testing but was much more concerned with the BP because I have been short of breath and having a pain in my back. So, off to the radiologist immediately for chest xrays. And an appointment to come back on the 17th. He wanted to see me sooner but was going to be away this week.
So every morning I tell myself the PA would have called me if there was anything dreadfully wrong with my xray or my blood work, stop worrying and look forward to a good appt next week.
It works most of the time.
