My new dr./old dr.
After moving to N. Cal. from S. Ore. I was seeing a dr. in Redding, 2 hr. drive from Oroville, I have been very patient with him, he is the dr and is supposed to know this stuff, but now after a perioud of time it seems that his only drive is to get me off prednisone which is the one med that keeps me going, yes I know that this stuff is not good for me let alone on a long term basis, to his bennefit he has taken me from 40mg a day down to 14mg a day by reducing 1mg every 2 weeks. A 14 mg I was really feeling fatigued, missed 3 days of work and was not functioning well when I was there, I informed him of this while remaining at 14, he had blood tests run, I for the most part had to keep calling him to get any results, they finally called back and said that my blood work looked good, sed rate at 2( not sure exactly what that is supposed to mean) and that all this was showing no lupus activity. At this point I am fed up with this guy, put myself back up to 15mg a day and call my old dr. in Medford Or. who I have the utmost respect for and he agreed to take me back until I can find another in the Chico area. WOW, whats up with some people? It all goes back to the old saying; LUPUS, IF YOU AINT GOT IT, YOU JUST DON'T GET IT! Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our tribulations, that we may be able to comfort those who are in any trouble, with the comfort wich we ourselves are comforted by God. 2 Corinthians 1:3
