So far, my Doctor ordered something for me even though she knew I am deathly allergic. And I caught that in time. Literally saved my own life. Now her next thing was, I came in because the new Armour thyroid formulation was causing severe crippling pain in my lower back and right leg and something has been happening to the joints and the discs. I almost went to the ER four times from the pain. So I went to her and I asked to be switched off the med. What does she do? "Oh, I'll just give you something to relax the muscles. Stay on the med." Yeah, right. Well, it started to go into the left leg and get worse and worse and I felt like I was going to end up in a wheelchair. So I stopped all meds and low and behold a few days later, the crippling pain is gone. I'm still getting some twinges, but it's going away. So I guess her plan, since she couldn't kill me off was to put me in a wheelchair??? And the muscle relaxant she gave me affects eyesight, so I guess if I'd listened to her I'd be crippled and blind??? Also, when I was in her office, she said I had a fever. She made me go immediately for bloodwork. The bloodwork showed my white cell count is up. She did NOTHING about it. Didn't suggest we investigate why it's happening. Didn't offer me an antibiotic in case I've got an infection going on. Nothing. And I was like, then why even bother to have me get the bloodwork in the first place? So I spent the weekend with the fever. It's better tonight on its own. But the point is, I went in to her office in terrible pain with a fever and an elevated white cell count and she was content to just not investigate further. This doctor scares me. I just don't know who to go to anymore. The only thing she has done right so far, was to never say it's in my head. She really believes it's a physical disease. But in all other ways, she sux. She is now farming me out to an Endo, who will hopefully be much better. And she did say if I need a referral for a Rheumatologist, she will give me one. I'm hoping whatever damage the medication did is not permanent. With docs like this, I'm better off self treating. And it just kills me, we go in for help and they make us worse. And then people wonder why I don't go for long periods of time. Well, this is why.
