Doctors, Doctors, Doctors!!!!

Monday, September 1, 2008
I have not been feeling well for the last 2 weeks and I was to my thyroid Doctor on the 13Th of August just for a check up from the body scan I had done in May. Well my Doctor had upped my synthroid medicine in May but I didn't start taking them till July because I wanted to finish all my other medication. When I went to see her on the 13Th of August I ask her why she upped my med's and she looked in my file and said she doesn't know why she upped them. So I thought that she would find the reason and let me know. About 2 weeks ago I woke up in the morning with my heart just racing and it lasted for about 8 hours and I felt a little better, and that night I kept on waking up with my heart racing (very scary feeling) so my daughter had a Doctors appointment and I went with her because we have the same doctor and she took me in and did a EKG on me and she wanted me to have a stress test and a echo cardiogram and I did them on Friday so I'm waiting for the results on them. But my regular Doctor says that my synthroid levels are to high so I called my thyroid Doctor because she is the specialists. Now remember I had my blood drawn on the 13Th of August and I called them on the 25Th and again on the 26Th and I finally got an answer on the 27Th and they said that my levels are way to high(can you believe that) it took them that long to tell me my results and if it wasn't for my regular Doctor I would still be taking the wrong amount. Well I'm finally back to the 150 I use to take but this will last for 6 to 8 weeks until my other med's kick in. So needless to say that I'm not going back to my specialist. ( she doesn't know why she upped my medicine can you believe that). I could have had a heart attack and now I have to wait for weeks to feel better and I think that SUCKS!!!! I would like to make her feel the way I do. ( I know that's not very nice and I'm a very understanding person but this is the second time that I have had a hard time with getting my results in a timely manner and what if I would have had a heart attack ). I'm sorry for venting this all on you in blog land but believe me it help's. Thank you very much and let me know if you agree with me on getting another specialists.
