I had my doc appointment today. She is amazing but the wait to see her is forever and with my pain level sitting there for hours waiting and seeing her is pure hell. But she is so thorough that I really should not complain. Didnt help my pain level is 10+ today. She added ibuprophin for my tension headaches, I do not see it helping, some skin cream for my hives, and my flexoral. I am on way too many drugs right now. I am allready on five for my bipolar. She said if the ibuprophin does not work to call and let her know then she will put me on imitrex. Sigh. I have to go force myself to cook and eat then rest time for me.

Hi Ang,

I am sorry that you are in so much pain today. I know how it is taking medications I think I take eight different things. Saturday night when I have to fill my pillbox is pure stress until I get it done. So I can understand you not wanting to take anything else.

I hope that you feel better soon. Keep posting and let us know how you are doing.

Hugs, Karen

I know what you mean Ang. Everytime I see my Rhueme its a waiting game. I learned with my Prim. Phy. its to get his first appt. of the day which makes a big difference. Sometimes if I get an appointment first after their lunch hour I can get in pretty quick.

Just thought I'd share, have a better evening....Relax.... :-)

Hi Angleline,
Glad you got to the doctor today. 
I'm lucky to live in a very small town now and getting in to see my doctor is usually there and done in a half hour.  I used to live just outside of NY in NJ.. a doctor visit would take a half a day.  ( I sure don't miss the waiting but the medical care in my area leaves a lot to be desired.) 
Hope you get some rest now.
Take care,
