What should I ask the Doctor for? Need your advice!
I'm going to see a hospital specialist, and wanted to know what you thought I should ask for, tell him about, etc.
My GP diagnosed me with UCTD recently and has referred me. My ANA is about 1:320. As well as constant pain in a couple of places, I also have some symptoms of fibro, and want that to be checked out. What should I be asking him to do to be sure he has checked me out properly? Symptoms are fatigue, pains in tendons and muscles just from lightly using them, difficulty falling asleep and then wake up in the middle of the night and cannot get back to sleep, weird migraine-like headaches mostly in my forehead which can be made worse if I shift my eyes to the side. I also have PCOS, Hashimotos, and endometriosis.
My body needs aerobic exercise but I don't know how to go about getting it. I want something for the pain and some long-term solution to not sleeping. And I want to be my old self again!!!
If there are questions you forgot to ask ( and then when darn it!), if there are ones that helped the doctor think a bit harder about your condition, if there is anything I must remember and get an answer to before I leave the consultation room, please tell me!
