Re: Advice Need Please..Really Needed x
did they say just why they did not do the testing theyhad told you they were going to do on you?i would think,just given your symptoms that they would have at least done the tap.this,i do think is the only real true way of either confirming or ruling out the menengitis.(tho i could be wrong,but this is what i have always been told).i would call your own primary doc at this point and ask what your next steps should be.either that or go back to the ER and ask about the spinal tap or some other possibble way to actually rule out the menengitis.it just sounds like they kind of dropped the ball on you here and did not actually fully follow thru with all of the right testing.your primary doc should be able to help you out here with this.if you are still feeling like you stated here,going back to that ER may also be very helpful so they can continue what they actually started before and finish it this time.you do need to find out just what is going on,espescially if what you actually have could be possibly contagious to others.being in school,i would think they would really want to find the cause here so they are not sending you into a place that could casue some other kids to also become sick,you know what i mean?
but you DO need to at least call your own doc and maybe even get seen today yet.part of our primarys docs job is to help to advocate for their patients in these types of situations.i hope you feel better soon.just keep pushing things til someone does their jobs for you.please keep me posted on how you are doing,K? good luck, **
