i reprimanded 3 drs.for their innappropiate manner of bad behavior toward myself. does the medical board take all patients complaints seriously? also patients sign hippa rights of privacy? if this is the case then why do other drs. get your medical report before you even get an appt. with a new physician. where is the privacy there? an why do staff members of the drs. office know all about your medical problems ? this is not privacy in my world........ another issue, do all drs. stick together when someone reprimands one within the same group of drs. an how will i be treated after ? i dont think it can be any worse as i am red flagged already by every physician in my area, the reason i am flagged is because the drs. have not been able to help me with my issues, an therefore i became a chronic complainer in which there is several patients like myself having this issue . why does this happen? sorry for so much questions just want to know what i am in for? because i have stage 3 lung cancer can i be denied medical care now?
question for you? i see jaggered light on the sides of my vision like lightening mostly right eye what does this mean. . just started today . i also had allergies today so bad i can barely speak. it affects my voice an i get dizzy an lightheaded an tired. anyway whats this?>
hi rick, its me i think i have allergies that are making me dizzy, seems when the weather is windy an dry , i get like a head cold .loss of voice, vision is not right, head feels swollen inside , inside a store i feel ok but out doors so dizzy can barely walk disoriented in my head. i took a half clariton an still feel dizzy , what can i do to rid this , i hate this dizziness, ears feel full an nose feel inflamed . neck in spasm an eyes real tired . is this allergies or something else.
u r smart dr. i used to get this right side stomach discomfort an dizziness with it, i thought at one point it was acid reflux an had been taking prilosec but it is acting up again an i am dizzy again an i still take prilosec daily but it is back what can this be? i also have had bleeding in stool, it hurts to go to bathroom for 2 months now. ,i had internal hemroids a few yrs, ago i think it may be just that. but what can the stomach issue be an i also have vision trouble with this my upper back neck in spasm since i been knitting again, headache also an do u think this may be just tight muscles so sick again was ok for about a month. .ITS BACK ... not happy.
hi dr. went to dr. the bleeding was from internal hemroids , an my dr. switched my prilosec for nexiom . headaches an back pain neck spasms an disoriented caused from cervicalgenic spondylosis .i am seeing a specialist next week for these so called severe migraines.something to do with the nervous system. been worse for the past month . doing another pet scan next month also. . hope all is well with u ttys thanks
hi dr. rick, ..........what causes right side head spasm , vision trouble, an upper right side back so tight spasm i guess an upper right side stomach pain ,making me sick an dizziness an comes an goes an disoriented . one time it was h.py lori, an antibiotics took it away an another time it was lung cancer same side . caused this, sweats with it also. i am doing a pet scan in a few weeks . hopefully not cancer. it was 3 yrs. today....is this a migraine or cancer or what......very disoriented again.
i just want to thank you before i rate you . i believe you relate well with your patients . your expertise is well above average in handling some people. thanks for not stressing me out as i am already depressed with these symptoms. i will let you know how things turn out .i hope all is ok with you an your family. an thanks again i shall rate an pay now....have a great day.............
hi dr. . havent talked to u in a while . anyway. still in remission with cancer. but debilitating fatigue, an severe back muscle weakness an balance trouble an vision trouble. i feel this way everyday. not anybetter. off balance with movement of head same stuff maybe 2 days a month i feel half normal. i cannot walk or stand long without this weak an disoriented feeling in head. can migraines be this. why doesnt any dr. understand this. i am doin physical therapy for hip pain in right side low back started 2 weeks ago cannot lift leg without pain in lowback hip . under eyes bags an my b12 level was high do u know anything about this again. sorry i didnt getr back to u needed more funds. ttys hope all is ok with u an your family. ttys.
happy for you, an thanks for answering all my questions. i come to the conclusion this is fibromyalgia, m.s. or hormones . an maybe debilitating migraines. that is all this could be. although debilitating. cannot walk straight an head is disoriented at times. during internal inflammation . i just emailed the mayo clinic in jacksonville fla. maybe they will come up with something if i can get an appt. i will wait this is going on too long. i thank you for all your comments keep well enjoy your family an have a great life. do all u can while u r healthy cause life is so very short........thanks
