I was just at the ER today and had a simular experience. The doctor had this really low voice and seemed like he tried to dismiss my symptoms even though I had high blood pressure, fast heart rate, fever, the big D, and felt very light headed. At one time, my heart rate was about 110 and within seconds it jumped to about 150 and thats when I started feeling very light headed and had chest pain, and a tingeling, burning sensation on the right side of my body. I told the doctor how scared I was and he's response is, "well the blood work didn't show anything to be concerned about!" WHAT! NOTHING to be concerned about? The nurses were not very friendly either and said, "you can sleep at home!" Like DUH if I felt good I would have, why do they think we are in the ER because we want to be!! I am very dehydrated even though I am drinking TONS of water and now I have noticed heavy limbs too. They told me I have to make an appointment with my regular doctor if I want further testing. The people at the hospital are the first ones to try to boot people out, but yet they are right there waiting for there pay check. Do some doctors and nurses even give a darn about people?? Im beginnig to think not.......
Hi Fellow Canadians,
Could you tell me what a Remicade coordinator is? and what services do they offer? Where are they located and what's the best way to get in touch with them?
Are they able to support in accessing drug coverage for Remicade? How do they do it? What information do they need from you in order to file for drug civerage on your behalf?
Can they arrange to get us the infusion even before I get drug coverage?
Please respond urgently.
