I have a two hour, new rheumatologist visit on wednesday and i am totally freaked out, stomach is in a painful knot. Maybe I need Dr. Phil to walk me through this. He is a specialist in fibro, myofasical pain syndrome, arthritis, etc. My brother has been to him and highly recommends him. I have white coat syndrome and then brain fog kicks in. I take a Klonopin before I go but by the time I drive all the way downtown, with all the traffic, etc., I usually forget even my phone number when the receptionist asks for it. I don't usually appear too bright at that point. I have every question written down, etc., so I will appear to at least have a brain. Does anybody have any tricks they use to make dr. visits not so traumatic? This happens to me every doctor visit I have ever had and I am 50. Yes, I definitely need a Dr. Phil session. Here is hoping everybody has a good day and behaves themselves!
