Pearls and Dreams
I knew it! I shouldn't have sent that email. It seems my primary care doctor is not as positive as I am that the chest pain, shortness of breath & palpatations are lupus related. She's sending me to a cardiologist ... TOMORROW morning.
I do not like it when I get into a specialist 24 hours after the doctor finds out about a problem.
I'm only 40, I have lupus ... ARGH! I'm going to go in there tomorrow, he's going to examine me, do an EKG, tell me everything looks normal with my heart, listen to my lungs and say, "Well, you have pleurisy on the left side"
And then I'm going to really regret sending that email.
Ugh. I'm so tired of doctors. No offense to the doctor's who blog, you're not the ones I'm tired of.
