I feel like that procedure thru me into a flare. The cramping isn't that bad but everything else hurts. Or it could be from the busy week I had. Everyday this week except for Thursday I had a doctors appointment. My mom said you going to have to space them out. I'm like these is all the referrals that my primary doctor put in to see. My medical team consist of:
So I have seen all these physicians at least one time to establish me as their patient. And because I have lupus and Sjögren's syndrome all of these doctors are need. For instance my dentist has to keep up with my teeth because for Sjögren's. And Ophthalmologist has to screen my eyes every 6 months to make sure I don't get toxicity in my eyes from taking plaquenil. The nephrologist has to manage the level of protein in my urine to make sure the lupus isn't affecting my kidneys. Each doctor plays a role to keeping me somewhat healthy.
Yes ever since I received my Medicaid my doctor been putting in referrals and some of the other doctors has put referrals in for certain test. Like the gynecologist needs me to get a MRI done to see why my prolactin so high and make sure I don't have a tumor on my pituitary gland. Which is still freaking me out. So between seeing the doctors and then having to go for several MRI'S because 2 of my doctors want it done on my knees and back. Go get an X-ray that another doctor ordered. My schedule has been booked. I'm so grateful for getting the insurance but it's been overwhelming of things each doctor has to do and monitor. Because if I continued not having insurance my body will have just getting worse and worse. My health would have gotten worse which it did starting 4years ago. So I hope I don't have to go thru a painful procedure like yesterday's. I'm extremely exhausted and use all my spoons and then some this week. I'm going to stay in the bed and try to get some sleep.
