I am dx with ptsd with night terrors. Had sleep study done over night and full day. I tend to stay to go back to first stage of sleep during a terror and sleep at the clisest point to being awake. Alot of my bearings happened over 15 years by being woke up during the night.

Hi my name is ***** ***** I hope I can help. Moving to new places always makes getting a provider challenging. One of the things you can do is find a provider in your area that takes your insurance (if you're using insurance) and then ask to fill out a form to have your previous records submitted to the new provider's office (this is called a release of information). This release will allow the doctor to read your history and therefore know you don't have a problem with "drug shopping." Does this make sense?

No thsnm you. I have tremors so severe my voice shakes. I'll figure out how to find help but th ank you anyway

So even with the records, the provider wouldn't prescribe you medication? That's odd - what was their reasoning?

For tremors. But mine are like adrenaline overload

Oh wow, I'm really sorry to hear you're going through this. Is there a nurse practitioner that is in the area that could assist?

Not that ive found. This area is bad, like everywhere else with drug addicts. No one listens and if I ask for what works ill be treated bad. Im at a loss but thank you for your help. Its a shame someone suffering is done this way. My record has always been clean. Same drs for 20- 10 years previous

It is very unfortunate - our mental health and medical systems aren't what they need to be or even what they should be - it's especially unfortunate for individuals with significant medical and mental health aliments, who reside in smaller towns - as I presume, for you, the next closest doctor is at least an hour away?

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
