Ok I really really need some advice.
Some of you know that my life is a circus. My husband being diagnoised with Fibro, Oldest son has mental issues, father was in jail up until this morning, 2 more teenagers going through normal stuff, my kidneys, my heart and chronic pain. I go to so many different specialist it seems I have appointments all the time. My supervisor at work has a black soul and is mean as the devil. I could go on and on with all the things that I deal with on a daily basis.
HealingWell is my excape from my life to where I can go to talk to people who understand more then anyone else around me.
Heres my problem.... I had to get a new PCP. The one I had before went to work for a pain clinic 80 miles away. She was so wonderful and understanding. She deals with CP in her own life after her xhusband tried to kill her. She ended up with her hand being mauled by him, he did that so she couldn't become a surgeon. She lost two fingers and had a prostecic hand. This was 5 months ago that she left her practice. SO I want on a search for a new PCP.
1st one I had fits with. I posted about them regarding how long it took them to get my pain clinic referal done. The made me come in once a week to get a refill on pain meds. The refused to refill even though it was their staff who sat on the referal. So after a month I droped them. Before I left them I had refills on all my kidney and heart meds. Well I've been looking since then. My husband found an office that he thinks is wonderful so I went on friday. BIG MISTAKE
For one thing he didn't like that I was on 19 different medications. Ok I understand that. But he was wanting to cut out my lasix, three blood pressure meds, migrane meds and so on. He wants to get it down to under 10 meds a day. He disagreed with all my specialists. He told me he was not a PA but a doctor so hes just not there for colds and broken bones he was there to control all my meds. He wasn't happy that I even went to a pain clinic. He refused to refill some of my meds pending a blood test. Ok fine but he made my blool pressure go up. It started out at 150/90 then he checked it close to me leaving it was 162/102. He looked at me and said "See all your BP meds are not keeping it controlled."
Of course its not going to be controlled he made it go up. My cardiologist says situational increase in BP is fine as long as it doesn't go above 200/100. He believes in BP at resting rate to see where you stand. Plus there is a cause of White Coat increase. Some people has increases just going to the doctor.
I know I can just replace him but am I just being parionod? Do you think he might be onto something? He also trains students from Vanderbilt University.
I have so many things going on in my life that this just seems like BS coming from this doctor and I so not want to deal with finding a good PCP.
Any advice would thrill me right now.....
