Well, I went to my GP today, & my sabbatical from Doctors is finished.
So, as far as the acid reflux goes, for now I am taking Prilosec. She says to just start with that until I can see a Rheumy for a dx on what is going on with me. She thinks I have some kind of an Auto Immune disease & I agree with her on that. I felt the last Rheumy I went to didn't listen to me (NO!! Really??) & just tried to fit all the symptoms into a neat little package called ME/CFS. Not that I don't have that, but I have always said there is something else going on. Tomorrow I go to the hospital for a CT of my lungs because last year I had a chest x-ray & there was a film on my lungs & my heart is enlarged. So, I go for the CT scan & I had more blood tests today, as a matter of fact she took so much blood I almost passed out & she said I was the prettiest shade of "pea green". LOL!! The next day I go to the eye Doctor to have my eyes checked & the dryness tested. Then, next week I have to go to Sandpoint, ID to have another echo cardiogram, which this is my third one in 6 months & I am not happy about
this cardiologist, I don't like him. Also, I will be seeing a pulmonologist for some kind of tests but it was Greek to me when she named them off. Then on to the new Rheumy sometime after that. So, I have not been working for 4 years & I still have a pile of Doctor bills from the last time around but my daughter says I have to do this, so I am. You know, 5 years ago I was hiking up & down mountains & walking 7 miles into a lake to go fishing & now I can hardly make it up the stairs to my bedroom!!! Well, I guess it is not good to dwell on what was, but as Patti says "It is what it is!". Thanks Pattie this is my new phrase & I have used it many times since you said it to me in a post.
I hope everyone is having a wonderful Spring, it is here, Hugs, Denise
