Customer: replied 4 years ago.
Nope
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 4 years ago.
Good--anything specific for today?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
Im nervous for my ob appt tomorrow because i dont like vaginal exams
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 4 years ago.
Well I doubt any woman looks forward to that but you've been through it before.
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
I know. Its just really hard for me
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 4 years ago.
What else?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
Nothing
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 4 years ago.
OK--later then
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
Can pentasa cause it itching
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 4 years ago.
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
Why
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 4 years ago.
Histamine release--basically an allergic like reaction. But usually there's a rash involved
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
Should i stop taking it
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 4 years ago.
Are you itching all over? Any rash?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
Itching all over. Just a little redness no rash
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 4 years ago.
OK--let your GI know because it could be the med. Don't stop it until you get in touch with him
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
Would you take me off of it
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 4 years ago.
Not until I saw you and made the determination then because it may not be from the med
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
The nursing home called and my aunts pupils are dilated and shes breathing hospice
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
They just called back she died
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 4 years ago.
Just got back on. Sorry about that
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
I dont know why you are saying sorry
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 4 years ago.
Good point--sorry you have to go through it might have been more appropriate. As far as she goes, it's good that it's over for her
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
Its so sad
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 4 years ago.
True. I think I told you once about how I lost--by death or otherwise--the five most important people in my life within a year
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
Ill get over it
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 4 years ago.
I did
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
I know
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 4 years ago.
Anything else?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
I guess not. Im just sad
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 4 years ago.
OK--listen it really isn't about the money for me but again you do need once in a while to rate something somewhere. Let's close the page, get a good night's sleep if you can, and I'll talk to you later.
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
I have a question. I roomed a pt this morning that hAd bacterial menengitis is that bad for the baby
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 4 years ago.
Have you had the vaccine?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
No. They didnt do that vaccine when i was younger. I think weve only been giving it for 5 years
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 4 years ago.
Well health professional should get it so talk to your OB about it. Just rooming a patient with bacterial meningitis doesn't really put you at risk but I'd still give you the vaccine
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
no harm
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 4 years ago.
No harm
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
Do we gotta close
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 4 years ago.
No, but there are three previous long pages with no ratings so I would like you to rate one of those first.
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
Better now?
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 4 years ago.
They just monitor customers and do notify you if there are too many unrated answers. So what else?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
How do i not be sad
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 4 years ago.
You can't turn off grief and it's natural--you have to go through it.
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
Im tired of being sad
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 4 years ago.
It does help to have someone to be there for you when you are--not to say they understand how you feel but just to be there
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
I have you gor that
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 4 years ago.
Didn't understand that?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
Nevermind
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 4 years ago.
OK
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
I see my psyvhiatrist tomorrow
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 4 years ago.
what are you going to say to her?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
Im not sure. I dont know if theres a point of me going since im not medicated
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 4 years ago.
you haven't thought at all about what to say to her? If you really haven't there probably isn't a good reason to go
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
I havent. I hate going to see her. She jat cares about is medications
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 4 years ago.
Well you should at least have something to say to her to make use of the session. And you should tell her that you can't take the ativan now that your pregnant
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
My therapist already took it upon himself to tell her that
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 4 years ago.
Well, still go in there with something to say to her. At least you should tell her how your therapist scared the bejeesus out of you
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
Intense pain on the right side beneath the ribs
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 4 years ago.
Could be gall bladder or the Crohn's --can't be sure but please don't ask me what to do about it
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
Is there a different med that is not a benzo incan take for anxiety
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 4 years ago.
Wellbutrin
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
Besides that one.
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 4 years ago.
SSRI's like what you've tried. Get back to me after your psychiatrist session
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
Im freaking out again. The OB NP called said she doesnt want to see me until I do the repeat ultrasound in 2 weeks because she doesnt want to do all the work if this pregnancy isnt
Viable
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 4 years ago.
Not sure I understand--what work?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
Theres a whole bunch of paper work they have to fill out. And blood work to do ect
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 4 years ago.
Why when your OB said everything was fine would she suggest that the pregnancy isn't viable?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
I dont know. But she wont do it until i have another u/s that proves its viable. WTF. I was just calmed down
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 4 years ago.
Really doesn't make any sense for her to do that except that's she's lazy and just likes to procrastinate. Talk to your OB and get calmed down here because she's playing the what if game like you sometimes do and she just doesn't realize what that did to you
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
I told her my OB dr said everythings fine and that I was suppose to keep that appt today. I give up on the idea of having this baby. I will probably just miscarry anyways
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 4 years ago.
Stop it--everything's fine for now. Just go with what your OB said and forget about her comments
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
I cant just forget her comments. Im going to worry until the 23rd when the next ultrasound is
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 4 years ago.
I'm not going to work any more with trying to calm you down with this--you really do a number on yourself at the drop of a hat
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
Of course you wont help me
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 4 years ago.
There is no way to help you--this time you have to do it on your own. I've told you and your OB told you everything is fine and just because a NP is too lazy to do the paperwork on time you go ballistic. Dither you go by what we've told you or you go by what she said--your choice
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
she doesnt think its going to be viable
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 4 years ago.
She didn't say that--she just doesn't want to do the paper work now.
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
Because theres no need to do it if its not going to be a viable pregnancy
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 4 years ago.
OK--I'm out of here for now. You won't let go of her comment when it doesn't mean it isn't a viable pregnancy. Let's take a few days off and talk to your OB again just to get reassured. There just is no use in my continuing to try to get you calmed down because nothing I say will make any difference
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
You said to let you know how my appt with the psychiatrist goes

Hello,

I’m Camille, and I’m moderator for this topic. It seems the professional has left this conversation. This happens occasionally, and it's usually because the professional thinks that someone else might be a better match for your question. I've been working hard to find a new professional to assist you right away, but sometimes finding the right professional can take a little longer than expected.

I was checking to see if you had already found your answer or if you still needing assistance from another one of the professionals?

Please let me know if you wish to continue waiting or if you would like for us to close your question.
