I am not feeling well, and I went to the doctor today. Something about going to the doctor always frustrates me, and I feel like I never get anything accomplished. She poked, prodded, ran some tests and sent me to the hospital for some x-rays. I left without any answers and a lot more questions. Ugh!
Anyway, I didn't have a lot of time for blogging in between doctor's visits, but I wanted to type out a few tips to help me (and maybe you) during the next doctor's appointment.
1) Tell the doctor EVERYTHING- You never know what little details could make a big difference.
2) Remember to ask questions- If your doctor says something you don't understand, ask him/her to clarify. There are no stupid questions- especially when it comes to your health.
3) Ultimately, you are responsible for your own health- If you are uncomfortable with a diagnosis or treatment plan, seek a second opinion. Do everything you can do to ensure that you feel good about the decisions being made about your health.
I hope all of you are doing well, and I will post again on Fitness Friday.
