She chided me for not losing weight, then ordered an X-ray of the C-spine and T-spine. Then I go back in two weeks, and we start the whole, stinking process over again. I am so angry right now. I'm sitting at my desk working (I'm in Social media and spend A LOT of time using a keyboard). My finger dexterity is great, but my left arm feels weak and achey (and I hate a bout of fasciculations above the bicep). Instead of referring me to a neuro (which would have seemed the obvious decision), an XRAY? Are you kidding me? To those of you who have caring, communicative doctors, consider yourselves BLESSED. I'm dealing with a 28 year old kid who doesn't even have an MD behind her name. I'm so exhausted and frightened. She wanted to prescribe "Lyrica" and I told her, "I'm not taking a damn thing until I find out what's causing my symptoms!" I may have to change doctors, but with my ridiculous work schedule and very little support from my husband / family... I feel so completely alone right now. All I can do is get the x-rays, keep my follow up appt in two weeks, and go from there.
