I went to a docs appointment yesterday. I had to see a new GP since my previous one no longer accepts my insurance. I was very anxious and nervous because of health anxieties I hate going to the docs. I didn't like my previous GP but used him because all my family uses him.
Over all, I was pleased with the visit. She actually listened to my concerns even though she thinks I may need to see a therapist for the anxiety. Stated that she would do a complete blood work up to see where my levels are. I expressed that I wanted my thyroid checked. She stated she was going to check that, my cholesterol, and my hormone levels. My previous GP did not check any of that. She stated she don't like prescribing pills if they are not needed.
I am anxious about the hormones. The rest of the blood work I'm ok with as I have had several done in the past few months. I just hate for the hormone levels to come back normal. I feel no one is listening to how I feel and I'm not getting anywhere. I've changed my diet and doing more to help myself but without a doc seeing something on paper they act as if I'm talking like a nutcase when I'm sharing my symptoms. I'm just tired of going in circles and I'm tired of the guessing as to what is wrong with me. I know it's not anything serious from previous visits to hospitals and docs so I'm certain it's hormones but the docs just will not say. Sorry for the long post. I needed to vent.
