im in a panic, i cant take this. my dr. wanted me to take a physical last week to reasure me that i was ok. so i phoned for my blood test results and they said they were good, i though awesome. then on tuesday i went for and upper abdominal ultra sound, cause of my sore back and sore middle chest area sometimes, i got a call from my doctors office this morning, he wants to see me, i know i seem like a coward, but i have such a health phobia. ive taking 2 of my xanax, but they arent helping, why cant they just tell me what he needs to see me for over the darn phone. im home alone with my 2 boys, who are both under 4 years old. ive been phoning my gf at work, she cant come home, i phoned family, but there all busy. im sitting here balling right now and my childeren are playing in there room. what if im dying from some type of stomach cancer or something. i cant take this. i cant sit here and think, ill talk to you all later.

when do you have to go in to the dr? I know exactly how you feel right now. I've been there. You need to try with everything you have to breathe deep and relax. It is more then likely NOTHING. If it was cancer then doctor would have told you needed to try and come in the same day. So if he just made you schedule an app for a few days or a week. Its probably something really small. My dr did this to me a couple weeks ago. And it wasnt anything that serious. He said if it was he would have had me come in immediatly. I hope you feel better soon. TRY to relax everything is ok

i HATE when doctors do that. That creates lots of anxiety right there. You should call them back and either ask them for an appointment today or tell them you want to know exactly what is going on because the anxiety is too much. Tell them you want the doctor to call you back directly and let you know what's going on. Remember, doctors work for YOU!

thanks alot for the support, and Mooney i did ask what it was about, and i have in the past before asked to speak to the doctor, but they said he wont do that, but they can ask him to call back at the end of the day. my appointment is for today , in like 4 hours from now. the thing is when i had tests done a few months back, he got the results back, and when the receptionist called me , she told me that time that the doctor said it wasnt urgent and that she would make my appointment for 2 weeks away, i later found out that it was just my chlorestorol that was a bit high and he wanted to talk to me about it. BUT this time when she called she said the Dr. wanted to see me, and to come into the office today. this is why im so scared, if it was nothing, why would i have to go in so soon???.i know i sound like a baby, bu t im very scared, think i may have to try another xanax or something. the thing is they KNOW my issues at the doctors office, they know my health phobia, they know i have been off work for the past 2 years for aniety/panic attacks, the whole nine yards, why the He!! would they make me wait. make me come in right away, or tell me on the phone not to worry that its not serious. this is what happened last time my anxiety got so bad , last time in sent me into depersonalization, derealiziation/FULL BLOWN panic attacks. and my anxiety went right through the roof. thanks again.
