I’m seeing the doctor tomorrow, because he wouldn’t do his job last week. Last week’s appointment was supposed to be a routine request for repeats, a referral to a neurologist (start as early on it as possible because it takes a long time) and an increase in my duloxetine for migraines.
He refused to increase it last time until he’d bothered to read my records and the consultant note authorizing the use of this med AND authorizing increase of dosage, which isn’t licensed for migraines. 20mg is not enough. I am in PAIN EVERY DAY!!!!! How DARE he refuse to treat me!!!!! The one-page consultant letter was right there on his computer, and in the five minutes last week we spent arguing with him about it, he could have read it. He refused to until I come back tomorrow. I burst into tears when he said ”I’m not going to do that.” for the second time. Refused to do me a neurologist referral (which I desperately need and will take at least 3 months), refused to increase my meds. When I said I’d end up in the ER if he didn’t help me, Nath (DH) ripped him a new one. Then he finally prescribed my current dose of 20 mg. But he didn’t stick it on repeats like the rest of my medications.
I want to plunge my knitting needles into his eyes. Maybe I should buy and wear this t-shirt to the following appointment?
