...at the Drs. Why even when there is NO one in the waiting area does it take 55 minutes to get in for your appointment (or more)? At least I felt very good about this NNP that works for a great OB/GYN. Basically-- I am getting some lab work -- estrogen and progesterone (which she thinks is probably nonexistent and when it is low it makes you feel like crap), thyroid, iron, and vitamin B12 levels (she is worried the numbness/tingling in my legs is from folic acid or vitamin def. or anemia). Also, it occured to me to mention my visit 3 1/2 years ago to the vein center for pain in my legs-- I forgot I was diagnosed with Pelvic Veinous Congestion and they told me I should have "coils" placed in my veins there to destroy them and hence not have the pain anymore. Oooops...I had put this back in my brain as I didn't want coils in my veins via my carotid artery. But now....(I need a reevaluation first, and she thinks it is most likely A lot worse), I am faced the question to have this procedure. I am not sure how much I believe it but I guess it makes sense since I have a lot of uterine varices (varicose veins) and intense leg and back pain. I can't get in there until the 21st.
