That does sound a lot less scary. It is good to know what you are dealing with.
Now we can pray for you to get equally good news.

Just a post out of frustration here.....

My doc told me on Tuesday that he was calling in a prescription to start my treatment. I went to pick it up and they said he didn't call. So, yesterday I called his office and they had lost my chart! Still no meds....

FINALLY this morning someone from his office called me and said that he called it in today. He thought he already had!!!

So, I've had to live with this headache, swishing, and dimming vision with no treatment for 3 extra days now.

OK, complaining over. I'll start the meds. tonight. Hopefully they will work fast. This sound is driving me crazy. I'm considering going home sick so I can start them now...

UGGHH. I hope you start to feel better soon with the medication. So frustrating at times, isn't it.

It got even worse. I called the pharmacy to make sure it was ready and found out that it is a rarely used med. and they had to order it! Hopefully it will be here tomorrow.

Yay, I'm glad you got some good news - now as far as the medication goes - my dad has always said "good things take time" - so hopefully once you get it, it'll work!

The fun never stops...

I got a call this morning from the radiologist. She forgot to run 2 of the tests ordered by my doctor. She just found it this morning, so I spent half the day having more MRIs.

It bothers me that my doc didn't notice when he got the results.

AND - still no meds.

I am following this thread and hoping for them to finally give you what you need... Geez, I am getting so annoyed here.. This is our healthcare system at work and it needs some serious help. I could write a book at what I have seen the last 4 years with Tom..

Mommasita, please let me know how you do.. hugs to you too..

OK, I am changing doctors. I've got some serious questions about my ENT.

My first hint was when he "forgot" to call in my medication. The second was him not noticing that they only ran 1 out of the 3 tests he ordered. And the final straw is this...

I started having some strange side effects for the medication. My urine got very cloudy and my hands and feet started having pins and needles. I called his office to see if I should be worried. I spoke briefly with his nurse. She told me to hold on while she talked to the doctor. She was gone less than a minute, and came back on the line to tell me that the doctor said "Take it or don't, there is nothing else I can do for you." So, I asked her if the side effects were normal with this medication, and she said "I wouldn't know".

Well, when I got home from work I had a message from the doctor saying he was returning my call.

I didn't bother to call him back. I think they have some serious problems in their office, and I refuse to be treated like that! There are lots of ENTs out there.

Yesterday I started to itch and develop a rash, so I stopped taking the medicine. I took some benadryl last night, and the rash is gone. Actually, all the symptoms for the medicine are gone, but the swishing in my ear is louder than ever. I guess I'm just going to live with it and work on loosing some weight. I've read that it will help.

I cannot believe this. I went to see where you lived but you are not close to MA.......we have a good hospital in Boston called Mass Eye and Ear....and people come from everywhere to go there. My daughter had her thyroid surgery there..

Here is the thing..... first, I would look up the name of the medication I was taking to see what the side effects were and if what was happening to you was normal.. I would note that so that when I went to another doctor I could say XYZ gave me these side effects, I cannot have that again so if you give me something else can we check on the side effects..

I would then call my primary care and ask for the name of a good ENT guy.......and I would let him/her know what happened with this other doctor. I would definitely follow up with someone else.

Good advice, Marsha. Thanks!

We are just a few minutes from Duke hospital. They did my recent surgery and saved my life. I think I'm going to try and get in with an ENT there.

This just hasn't been my week. DS7 has strep throat, DH is in bed with a sore throat (probably strep), and DS9 fell on the playground at recess today and broke both bones in his right arm. He had to have surgery tonight. We are finally home. Everybody is resting but me, so I think I'm going to bed too. Please say a prayer for us if you can.

Thanks!

Oh my goodness, poor you. I will keep your entire family in my thoughts and prayers. I hope you all get some rest, and DS is not in too much pain.
