Ok this AM I called both my Fam Doc and my Phycitrist. I left messages at both at 8 AM. My fam doc opened at 9:00, so I called then too. She said to see the phyc.
I called the phyc at 10:00 when they opened. I was promised that the phyc would call me right away. At noon I had not gotten a call, so I walked over to the office and asked if there was another Dr I could speak to, preferably a woman. The lady said that there wasn't a woman in that office, but gave me a number for a woman in town.
At 1:30 the Phyc called me from his car. He did not know what meds I was on, how long I had been taking them, did not know what was going on, and told me to take benadryl.
I told him I have already done that. He thought aloud about what med to put me on, and decided on one. (don't know what it is beyond the fact it is an antihistimine) He said that if it didn't work I should go to my regular fam doc. He didn't sound like he thought it would work, and said that the itchyness was really rare. He did not say he would replace the lamictal with anything.
I don't think I trust anything he says at this point. I don't want to take it.
I can't get into the woman phyc till Sept even IF she will take me.
The Fam Doc just called and said tht I could have an appt @ 10:00 tomorrow, or go to prompt care tonight. I think I will go to prompt care tonight. Now I am so upset I don't think I can work anymore. I might as well go home. I hate going to prompt care.
When you cannot stand, on whom do you lean?
