Thank you mlp.
I have been to an allgery asthma doc and was passed off to the family doc and a pumonary doc. With my symptoms, I have had the feeling of a constant lump for over a year and a half now. My voice is hoarse and when I lay down at night on the left side, I can't seem to do the swollowing function while laying like that. so I sit up to swollow and then lay on my right side. I also feel my heart really pumpin while laying on my left side. I have had two stress tests in the last three years. And I don't trust that cadio doc eiher. My family doc told me he had a patient who was 75 had a stress test, the cardio doc told him everything was good, that night he died of heart attack. Another patient of the GP said he had a lady who was around 60, she had a stress done and same result, everything looks good and two weeks later she had a heart attack. she lived though. Sadly the GP keeps telling me he isn't ruling it out with me because of a family history of my sister having had strokes and a heart attack in her 50's and then a quintupal by pass, my mom also had strokes and a triple by pass at 70. Along with colon problems with my other two sisters and my brother. Two sisters had bowel resections done and the one had a precancerous polyp. But yet the gastro doc will not do a colonoscopy till 2012 since I had one in 2002. So I have an appt. this week with a new group. sadly there is only two groups here. I know some people have to drive hours to get to one. so I should stop complaining about that.
Yes I do have a rheumy, but I have had two out of three positive results from the blood tests. She said she isn't convinced and I have asked her to test for some other things and she said no, i don't have enough symptoms for it. Even though I would have two or three. I know they are only human, but in the mean time, my life is wasting away because of their pride to hang on to a patient who could be getting help from someone who will be persistant with checking.
