For the past 2 months my bowel movements are soft, seedy like, and is hard to clean. Wipe several times and still need to use wet wipes. I see no blood signs but it is quite embarrassing when at work.
JA: In general, how has your health been lately?
Customer: I think pretty good. I have low thyroid
, type 2 diabetes, and see a cardiologist every 6 months for an incident I had a couple of years ago but they found nothing with a heart cath or stress test. I do take medicine for high blood pressure
, high cholesterol, farxiga & meteor in. My doctor put me on venlafaxine after the heart episode because I felt like I was always over anxious. Guess my question is how do I talk to my doctor about this because it is so embarrassing?
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: Yes I also take omeprazole for acid reflux and a baby aspirin. I do tend to worry about things that I can't control but that's the mother in me. I'm 64 and don't have the energy I use to have plus I still work about 35 hours a week.
