I had to make a trip to the doc today so I could get a refill on the pills I need to keep my ticker beating like they say it's supposed to. I had all these inquiries in my mind, one of which was why I keep having this spasm type pain in my left chest area and numbness and tingling in my left arm. I made this appt last week so imagine my surprise to find the doc is on vacation this week so I left there after having an exam by the NP who told me that I'm having muscle spasms in my chest, causing the muscle to press against a nerve.
I do not understand why the receptionist didn't mention that the doc was on vacation when I called to make the appointment, I didn't even know he wasn't there until I was talking to my SIL later this afternoon and she mentioned that he was away. I just figured the NP came in instead of the doctor because I wasn't dying or anything, or maybe that he'd been called to the hospital for an emergency.
One of these days I'm going to ask some of these questions before I leave the office.
Anyway, I'm going to try taking the muscle relaxers as often as the NP said to and if there's no improvement, I'm going to another doctor.
When I get around to it again.
