Well today was a good day! I finally met my new Dr who is an internist/acupuncturist/chiropractor. Yes, he had a wall full of diplomas 😉
He was WONDERFUL! I’ve never had a Dr say ‘we will get you feeling better and we will do it the right way’ I about fell out of my chair. I wanted to jump up and down and kiss and hug that sweet little Asian Doctor!!!!!!!!!!!
I’m not delusional and neither is he, he didn’t say he would cure my fibro but he DID say he wants me off the meds too, which was the first sentence out of my mouth. He DID say he would work closely with me and do what we need to do to get everything on the right track and that there was no ‘miracle pill’ which he knew I already knew.
I got acupuncture today, oh.. my. gosh.. I was ELATED! I haven’t had it done since I lived in Denver 3 years ago and I needed it something terrible! I walked out of there feeling like a new woman with far less pain that I went in with! YIPEEEE
I loved that he proved to me that he knew what he was doing by..instead of the normal ‘poke you there and see if you squeal’ he lightly touched different areas (inside my knees) and said ‘this is bad isn’t it?’ he could actually feel the knots and knew the difference in my ‘normal’ areas and the fibro infused areas. LOVE IT!
This makes you feel not so crazy, when someone else…especially a Dr can feel the areas that hurt so bad and acknowledge your pain. So needless to say, I love my new Dr.
We ordered blood work together…based on the research I had done and his knowledge of what needs to be done to rule everything out and get me on some sort of good track. I cannot wait to see him again next week for more acupuncture and the lab results. I may finally be on the right track.
So today…if your doctor isn’t doing what you think he/she should be doing and listening and actually helping…..go in search of a new one. I found mine on a fibro forum, yes it took A LOT of digging, but see how worth it it was?!
I hope you all are having an equally wonderful day!
