If only my team of various doctors were coordinated like this picture… Just a dream.
But the reality is that none of them speak to each other. They all seem to pass off whatever issues that I have to another specialist. And I don’t get any great results. I do have to say that the Rheumy is pretty responsive, but in this latest bout of symptoms (bladder issues and eye problems) he suggested I see an optometrist and the GP. Then the GP gave me antibiotics which have done nothing and she sent me to a urologist. The urologist doesn’t have appointments for the next 2 weeks. I might actually explode and die before then.
Same thing with the optometrist. To be fair, it isn’t really his place to change my meds, but I know that it is something to do with the meds. No one has really seems to be listening to me and tried to change them up to see what is really going on. Instead I ended up getting a pair of glasses because I was getting bad headaches from not being able to see. I don’t feel that is the optimal solution, but who do I turn to next?
My plan is to keep pushing on someone to help me figure this out. Be aggressive with all of them and see what results I can get. And not let them pass the buck.
