Hey Razz -- when/if you ever feel like 'starting over' (it would have to be almost completely), just call a Dr and say you need a new PCP. Tell them that you haven't been to a regular Dr for many years.
That was my truth when I called the first PCP who ordered a WB, even tho it was from Quest. I had not been to a regular Dr in over 8 yrs. Yes, I am bad. I requested a consult about some issues that were bothering me when I made the appt.
btw, at my last psychiatrist visit (he only prescribes antidepressant and anxiety meds) indicated that he did believe in lyme. I saw him make a note in my file, but he has twice stated that he doesn't know anything about it and can't treat me. I asked him to please look into this for the sake of his patients and he did seem interested. At least he didn't call me crazy.
Anyway Sunshine, Sax, and others: how big a deal is getting a spect scan? What is it like?
I am actually on the verge of finding a new Dr -- the Lyme Ass of Greater KC has sent me a list of GPs that are learning about and treating lyme here! So I guess I can ask a new Dr about this scan, but want to know what others think about it and if it's a big ordeal.
