I am going to my Primary MD today---to talk about
a TON of stuff (update on my Celexa not working, Klonopin) also me giving myself an ulcer (supposedly)----and how I am not feeling much better.
I am a nervous wreck about it! I feel like I am going to visit with him, and he will be just as frustrated with me as I am with this whole situation! I have my chest pains, tightness in my throat---and am shaking---shouldn't I be feeling good about going to my MD? Why am I feeling this way? HELP? (thank you for listening).....
Update (9/17): Well, my PMD was really great---took his time to listen to me (and my problems finding a GI person, anxiety, etc...) However, he wants to continue eliminating problems with my GI tract--via blood work---until I can see a GI guy---and so I went today (Monday)---and got bloodwork done for CELIAC disease (HUH?), kidney function, H-pylori, white blood cell count, and a few other things I honestly can't remember!
I told him how I was feeling anxious about going into to seeing him. He totally understood, but I decided that right now, I am only going to take Klonopin as needed, until we can rule out the GI issues and my back (Back specialist next week).....In the meantime, I am just journaling my anxieties and worries (and I will probably post here too)----b/c I want to keep a journal of what I am experiencing----pain wise/anxiety wise. And, I also go and talk w/ my therapist----
I am glad I went to see him---and that he was pretty receptive to what I want to do---but, also him trying to eliminate some things about my GI system. Now, I have to wait until the END OF OCTOBER TO SEE A GI GUY !!!! WAH!!!!!!!
thanks for listening!
