So I followed up with my PCP on Tuesday (7/26) regarding my Genetics appointment. I saw my PCP because I don’t like my Rheumatologist whatsoever. It took her a minute to sift through all of the information that was on my official report that the genetics department sent me. I had to explain a couple things to her such as the Beighton Scale, but other than those few things it ended up being a serious discussion.
And my doctor thought that it wouldn’t be wise for me to take the two medications that the genetics people wanted me to try, that they wouldn’t be a good fit for me. And I figured that I wouldn’t have been able to take them, I looked them up on the Internet and I didn’t like the side effects or the drug interactions. If I had to take either one of those medications, I would have to stop taking all my current medications that keep my migraines, my sleep, some of my Pain and my heart in check.
So we concluded that it would be best if I just saw a Pain Management Doctor. I’m happy I’m finally going to see a pain management doctor, I’ve never experienced a day where I’m not in pain so this will be interesting. I’m happy I’m finally being taken seriously and I have a diagnosis on paper that says I have a reason to be in pain, that it isn’t “all in my head”. My PCP said she’d send in a referral, so now it’s just one big waiting game.
