As I have posted previously I've been having alot of problems. As of late the main ones beside constant tiredness and weekness have been feeling like I can't get enough air in, stabbing pains in my chest, and pain under my right rib cage and just below it. I went to a pulmonary specialist and he put me on a steroid inhalor he did a breathing test in the office and said my breathing wasn't where it should be and ordered pulmonary function tests, nothing else, no ct scan, nothing. The thing is he doesn't want to see me back for 3 mths and they said the tests don't need to be performed untill a week before. I feel like none of these doctors take any of this serious. I am seeing a rhumy and she did a bunch of blood work and a urine check and said she didn't need to see me back till Oct 15th. I called her and told her nurse about
the pain I was having under my rib and she said I'll have her get back to you and that was days ago.
She already knew about my breathing issues and knew I was supposed to see the pulmonary dr. I look at my 3 girls and hate this. I feel like my life and my quality of life is a joke to these drs. They don't seem to care or understand that I feel terrible pretty much every day. Its scary cuz I'm afraid something bad is going to have to happen before the drs will ever take me serious. My rhumy gave me an rx for physical theapy to do water aerobics. I have a hard enough time doing eveything I need to do to take care of my girls. I am overweight and she says well, maybe your pain is due to not moving enough. I keep praying that one day I'll find the right dr and they'll finally help me. On nights like tonight when I have a hard time breathing it scares me. I need to be here for my kids. What do I do?
