Finally saw a specialist today. He is the guy that treats my chest but he also looked after me in hospital after the Specialist (general medicine I think ) finished their rotation and went back to the city. And he did say when I was in hospital that he would see me and help me out after discharge.
$80 later......... thinks my headache and jaw pain are from a tension headache because I am worried about my TA and vision. I strongly attempted to put the point over about my worry about losing my sight ( I was even crying )I also said it would be nice to get rid of the headaches and jaw pain.
Conclusion, sent for a blood test, he promised to read the BSR guidlines and to ring my neurologist. Stupid me, thought I would be in hospital now on a pred drip. He called me back at 7pm last night and said I would hear from the neurologists rooms probably today for an earlier appointment than the one I have in November.
So now what do I do if I go to the emergency department of the hospital these guys become my doctors anyway. Plus my husband has had a cough for about a week and I saw blood in the toilet last night that he is coughing up ( bright red ) so I would like to make sure he goes to a doctor tomorrow.
