Hello Dr. Uzair,
Well, I am in a tough position. I was unable to see my Dr. tomorrow
-but am getting in Tuesday.
I really do not have the option of calling 911 or having my husband take me to the ER because all they tell me is to see a Psychiatrist.
I will continue to use my lung meds (nebulizer and inhaler) and hopefully get by until I see my physician.
I and my husband David are so grateful that you are the Dr. that responded to my question.
I forgot to tell you that I also developed involuntary movements of arms and legs when laying down. I do have a very bad issue with my cervical vertebrae in my back.
This includes bone spurs, bulging discs and narrowing canal. It is extremely painful sometimes and sometimes my chin goes down to my chest and I am unable to raise it up.
I realize that I have a neurological issue-I saw a neurologist, she ordered an MRI and when she had her MA call me the answer I got when I asked what was wrong was "old age".
Now, I may be Bipolar, but am not stupid. I called the imaging place and told them to send me a copy of the results. This is why I know exactly what is wrong.
Anyway, I do have some severe health problems along with the ones I told you about. Well that's life sometimes. I am willing to live with them and not complain, but the breathing problem you called angioedema must be addressed promptly.
Thank you again for helping me to know what is wrong with me. I copied your answer and am taking it with me when I see Dr. Galez Tuesday. He is new to me, I shit canned the one I was seeing because he also told me to see a Psychiatrist and then told me to discontinue one of my breathing meds. To me, that was a little ridiculous when I am having breathing problems.
Anyway, I won't take any more of your valuable time. I will indeed watch to see when you are online again after I get to my apt Tues and let you know the outcome.
I just wanted to let you know that I do have neurological issues with my spine.
In my cervical vertebra-bone spurs, bulging discs and canal narrowing. I developed involuntary leg and arm movements when I lay down a lot of the time. The neurologist I saw concerning this issue ordered an MRI and when she had her MA call me, I asked what was wrong and she said "old age". Now, I may be Bipolar, but am certainly not stupid. I called the imaging place and had them send me a copy of the report. That is why I know exactly what is wrong.
I am not sure if this is the cause of this movement problem or not.
Anyway, I thought I would give you the information so you are aware of it.
