Yes it will be great if you can tell me more about
the tests at home. I don't think my ear pain is coming from a molar. There seems to be a bit of a bump behind my ear, actually lower then my ear, close to the end of the jaw and neck. It is not visible, but I feel it with my finger. The other ear doesn't have this, only the left side. I would like to find out more before my second trip
to my PCP. I am going in for a physical and she is my new doc and she seems pretty
open minded. The LLMD that I have to visit on the 16 th of Sept doesn't accept my insurance
, so I am seeing my PCP for all the tests I need. Also, I am seing an infectious disease doc that is ordering other tests for me: MRI of my brain and co-infection tests. I figure I should try to use my insurance
as much as possible before I ran
out of $$ with the LLMD and use the LLMD in addition to it, and not instead of...
I don't expect much from my PCP and my infectious disease doc (he actually denied the possibility of lyme and is more
open to other diagnosis such as MS, so we argued a lot about
that, I would call it "civilized arguing", although I felt like throwing the test results at him), other than ordering the tests... But the PCP was nice enough to give me the abx, based on my + lyme tests, which the previous PCP interpreted as false positive (all 4 of them)! How many false positives can one have? Good thing I still had some part of my brain working, I pulled all my records from my previous PCP and ran
the other way! Imagine what my life would be if I would have started a more aggressive treatement an year earlier (last year), instead of 3 weeks of abx which seemed to do nothing! RIght now I am in pain
and upset with docs for being soooooooooooo clueless!
