I just got to say, no doctor told me to get tested for Sojerns! I just went to my eye doc said I had APS & had symptoms of Sojerns & wanted to be tested! I told Dr. ERKAN and he just looked at me and never said another word about it! Just to ask my eye doc if I cud go on Plaquinil! My Hemotologist never said anything and only reason Dr. ERKAN tested me for RA he said was cuz I mentioned I had it as a kid! I guess we Gota be our own doctors and diagnosticians! Yes it's very annoying to go and they just tell u they're taking blood tests! God forbid I ask what blood tests they took! I don't know till this day if they ever Took a thyroid test? I will ask because I think wen u close the door you just become a statistic in there eyes and your forgotten! They ask u questions like have u lost ur hair and u hope they're Guna do the thyroid test! You forget to ask because you've just been told 3 times that you're a very complicated person with a complicated medical history! You already know that without him reminding you three times and getting u overwhelmed! So I'll just go and ask the next doc what I want to be tested for and just say one of my doctors suggested it! It's what I did to get tested for Sojerns and it worked! I've come to the conclusion that they're not only anti-social they have absolutely NO COMMON SENSE! That's the trouble with doctors ~~~ BOOK SMART, but no COMMON SENSE!!! I'm just angry at being my own secretary, my own diagnostician and keeping track of what they do when I'm paying big bucks for them to do it!!! I know welcome to your world! I've been here for far too long and I'm Guna start getting pushy and nasty cuz then they perk up! Sorry to get on this soap box!!!
