Primary Care Physician:
Follow up for migraines,
Heart rate is
“You’re having a panic attack.”
“I know what when my body feels the need to run and right now it doesn’t even think it can, this is not that.
“I guess we will put in another referral”
“Are you nervous?”
“I’ll prescribe something to lower it, that should have been your PCP’s first move….maybe it will help with the headaches”
“We need to get this Anxiety under control. It’s probably just stress from the Navy.”
When did this become we, she’s finally been listening to me. Since when has neuorology been more concerned than cardiology with someone’s heart? Anxiety barely remembers her own name these days. Let’s get to the root of the problem and listen to the patient.
But we wonder why Vets are living on the streets.
Not my usually format or topics, but I’ve been in and out of appointments lately and it’s been adding stress back into my life that has been for the most part feeling under control lately. I need to vent. I know a lot of people get frustrated with military medical, and I have accepted that my heart rate my just be higher as I really do not think it’s related to anxiety as in all this situations my anxiety was not showing her face.
