I am beyond frustrated with my doctor's office. I have been calling to try to get an appointment with ANY doctor and they are booked out until mid-April! I managed to get an appointment at another clinic (45 min from where I live) for tomorrow and they just called to cancel it, the provider won't be there. The only person I can get on the phone is the patient coordinator, who can do nothing but tell me they're booked and write down my symptoms. I feel as bad as I did pre-diagnosis. Bathroom 10-15 times a day, completely liquid with some blood, a cough from bronchitis that won't go away, and for the past week, fevers every morning around 6 am. Yesterday my temp was 103.7! I tried to go to work this morning, but after seeing one patient (I work in outpatient physical therapy), I had the chills so bad that I couldn't type, and standing for 10 minutes makes it difficult to breathe. My fever was 102 when I got home. I'm on cipro, Humira, entocort, and 6mp. Nothing is helping, and I can't keep missing work every day until I can see a doctor in April!
What can I do??? I left a message for my doctor, but generally they don't return phone calls, the patient coordinator does. Should I go to the ER? I am afraid at the hospital they will just try to throw prednisone at me and send me home. Please let me know if you have any ideas, thanks.
