So I called my doctor last week about the medications not working for me, she was out and her nurse said she'd call me today to let me know if they want to try something else. I am debating on whether to call them or not... I am anxious to find out if they're going to try another script and also I had some tests run last week so I'm hoping to find out some results from them. It doesn't help that my husband and I both have some stomach thing and he's home and I'm at work... ugh. I don't know what to do. I'm going there today for my first OMT appt to get my shoulder/neck sorted out and if they're going to prescribe me something I'd like to pick it up today because my palpitations are really awful... but I don't want to be a pain. I hate waiting for the doctor, I know she's busy but... eek.

I would call again. Just tell them sorry to be a pest, but I am just feeling miserable would like to get some help. Good luck!

Thanks everyone, I tend to overthink these things and convince myself that if I call too much the reception staff are going to think I'm a nut. They didn't call back today (grrrr!!!) but I am going to be on the phone first thing tomorrow to be a real pest... I realized I actually called last Thursday and haven't heard back since SOOOO I don't feel too bad being a repeat caller.

I did get my OMT today and I really liked the doc. He's kind of odd but he picked out nearly every sore spot on me without even asking... then proceeded to make it feel better with only mild manipulation (except one part on my shoulder that was really "truculent" kinda funny). But he didn't try to throw pills at me or tell me i'd be fixed today... in fact he said I might get a bit more sore (which is correct right now) but that it was a part of the healing process... then he asked me to take a look at my arms after he worked on me and where my skin was all grey and red mottled when I came in, it was clear and my hands were WARM! That is nearly unheard of! I'm really psyched that at least SOME of it isn't in my head! AND that he didn't just send me away with no idea what the problem is and no plan. He wants to see me once a week for 3 weeks to work on my shoulder issues and he wants to actually work on my arms too where he says he can sense some imbalances. It was pretty neat all around, for a change I actually felt like he was treating me instead of just rushing me out the door.
