For the past couple of days I have not been feeling to well. The nausea and overall malaise is kicking my butt. I went to my pcp because with all of my other symptoms and these kicked up a notch was overwelming to me. Plus I needed to get another referal to another neurologist.

He sat bewildered, as well as concerned, as I told him my symptoms, what went on with the other neurologist and why I hadnt come back immediately after what happened.

He reviewed my latest test revealing what I have come to expect......all were negative with the exception of the EEG which he didnt have the results. I told him I couldnt understand why are all my test coming back negative when I have so many symptoms its not funny. I told him I wanted to get the referal to the Cleveland Clinic. He said he would try his best. My insurance is good but the referal process is a mess.

In the end I left there with a precription of Xanxax (he wanted Cymbalta but KP doesnt cover it), a new test to check my gallbadder, and the office trying to get me into the Cleveland Clinic (I would be so happy if they were able to do so). All in all I have a great PCP doctor. He sits down, listens and acts on his concerns. I am blessed to have him.

What a great start to the new year. I was thinking possitive feeling like nothing could be worst than 2008.

Going to get the emg of upper extremities.

Meet the dr at the elevator at 8:15 am pressing the button contiunously because it didnt light up. The whole he was in back of me and I didnt know. I said to myself "Ohh good."

He didnt seem to be in such a good mood as I said hello. He shot back a sharp hello. I didnt think nothing of it because it was so early in the morning and plus the dr might of had too many on New Years lol.

As the dr and the tech finished up my test and I was going to get dressed. I mentioned to the dr I was having nausea and at times acid reflux. He just blew me off by stating "You have too many symptoms, if its neurological based I will treat it but if its not I will not." I felt deflated. I looked in the eyes of the tech because the dr had his back turned to me. Her eyes told me everything I needed to know. Find another dr.

Im going through a bottle of peto bismal a week. The extra strength kind which is turning my stool charcoal. He didnt give me the time of day. Trust is very important to me. He lost it. Guess I have call the pcp to ask for a referal to the Cleveland Clinic. Im not playing games. If he cant/dont want to help me I will go some where who can.

Not bad. I had no idea of all the gel they put in the hair for the test. When I got finished, the tech tried to comb my hair and style it (too funny), I walked into the lobby and noticed a lot of people looking at me funny. I couldnt wait to get home to wash it out!! I had to stop a McDonald's to get me a egg mcmuffin first lol.
