    When I can't get in with my doctor I go to urgent care or a clinic. It's the same price as what your insurance asks for at a doctors office. I wouldn't wait on it.

    I sympathize with you...Too much sodium can really mess you up. Check your bread and everything you buy from the store. My dad really reacted to sodium and it caused him much distress. I discovered his bread that he had 3x's a day and his low sodium turkey sandwich meat was one of the big causes of sodium.

    Lots of luck with the doctor maybe he can find another reason other than sodium. Two months is a long time to wait. Does your doctor have a nurse practioner in his office?

    Lots of luck and I am sure everything will work out soon...
