    My health has been suffering a great deal this school year. I was home 4 out of the 5 days last week. The doctor gave me some meds, but now I'm having side effects that are almost worse than being sick. :eek: :mad: :eek: :confused:Give me strength!!!

    Sorry you aren't feeling well. What do you have? Try and take the time you need to recover before you push yourself back into things.

    My goodness, I truly hope things get better for you! Some people (I'm NOT saying YOU are this way) are ready to take any kind of pill/med that the dr prescribes rather than looking further into the issue. Do you think your issue(s) can be simply solved w/ a pill or do you believe testing should be done to look into this? Some doctors aren't very good either. If the patient doesn't doesn't ask about anything, neither do they & they just write a prescription & it's onto the next patient. Does your doctor seem to genuinely care about your well being? I certainly hope so! If not, change doctors, get 2nd opinions, etc.

    Again, I truly hope things get better & you find the solution to your issue.

    Sorry you're sick. Have you gotten a 2nd opinion?

    And have you told the doctor about the side effects of the medication? Can he switch to something that you can better handle??

    I've been having chest pains, and have already seen 2 specialists. I feel their diagnosis support the facts. I totally agree about getting 2nd (and 3rd) opinions.

    I'm having some nasty reactions to the meds, but I need the meds. We will try a different one. ::Sigh::

    I have to wait 48 for this one to get totally out of my system before I can go on to take something else. I'm not feeling particularly "patient" right now -- no pun intended...

    I hope the docs find the meds or combo of meds that work well without a ton of side effects.
