I went to the doctor yesterday because I had a few issues. I didn't feel like I got any resolved. First off, I always weigh myself just before or after to check my scale against the doctor's scale. My scale said I stayed the same. The doctor's scale said I gained back the pound I lost the week before. I haven't done anything different. She couldn't explain it nor was she concerned. I am.
I've been having trouble swallowing. I had a bunch of tests done. None of them showed anything. Now I have to go to an ENT doctor
My back has been acting up. I started physical therapy. It seems like it's making it worse. The doctor said that my back will usually hurt while going to therapy and didn't seem concerned about that either. I've had three surgeries on it and I have scoliosis. I'm worried. I believe I will find an orthopedic doctor and make an appointment. I'm miserable when my back hurts. I'm limited in what I can do and I don't like that.
I've been having trouble with my stomach. I have a hiatal hernia and acid reflux problems. The doctor gave my a prescription for it. My worrying about the rest of my health has probably aggravated the problem. Again, she wasn't concerned.
Then the doctor mentioned something about COPD. I didn't think to ask more questions. I was trying to take in everything else she was telling me. I had to keep interrupting her as she would get up to leave the room to ask more questions that I had.
Up until now, I was okay with this doctor. Now I'm considering trying to find someone new. But am I going to find a doctor who will have the time, knowledge and patience that I need?
