confused    I am going to my Primary MD today---to talk about a TON of stuff (update on my Celexa not working, Klonopin)  also me giving myself an ulcer (supposedly)----and how I am not feeling much better. 
 
I am a nervous wreck about it!  I feel like I am going to visit with him, and he will be just as frustrated with me as I am with this whole situation!  I have my chest pains, tightness in my throat---and am shaking---shouldn't I be feeling good about going to my MD?  Why am I feeling this way?  HELP?  (thank you for listening)..... confused
 
Update (9/17):  Well, my PMD was really great---took his time to listen to me (and my problems finding a GI person, anxiety, etc...)  However, he wants to continue eliminating problems with my GI tract--via blood work---until I can see a GI guy---and so I went today (Monday)---and got bloodwork done for CELIAC disease (HUH?), kidney function, H-pylori, white blood cell count, and a few other things I honestly can't remember! 
 
I told him how I was feeling anxious about going into to seeing him.  He totally understood, but I decided that right now, I am only going to take Klonopin as needed, until we can rule out the GI issues and my back (Back specialist next week).....In the meantime, I am just journaling my anxieties and worries (and I will probably post here too)----b/c I want to keep a journal of what I am experiencing----pain wise/anxiety wise.  And, I also go and talk w/ my therapist----
 
I am glad I went to see him---and that he was pretty receptive to what I want to do---but, also him trying to eliminate some things about my GI system.  Now, I have to wait until the END OF OCTOBER TO SEE A GI GUY !!!!  WAH!!!!!!! 
 
thanks for listening! :-)

I feel the same way when i go to my Dr. I tell her the same things, or maybe some new ones, and i'm a little embarressed to tell her because she will tell me to continue to take my meds and give it time. Hang in there.

Hope,
I feel like you when I am head to MD appointment as I may be poo pooed and tests run just to show me there is nothing wrong and I am left with the same symptoms.
 
I get nervous on therapy days but once there I am fine.
Sounds like you have a lot of anticipatory anxiety going on.
Deep breaths and know that you have rghts as a patient so try to stay calm and talk with your physician , take a list with you to help remember your questions.
Good  Luck and keep us posted.
