I just returned from the va hospiital, and I got a peak at my medical record. I am irrate! The tell a phone advice nurse put down I said I was having a ptsd
attack! Bolony. I am going to try to get that fixed.
A nuerologist had seen a month ago put down my poly-
nueropathy was due to smoking under assements he puts anxiety! When I come in and try to get myself hospitalized the nurse praticner put down under assemnts anxiety! I did'nt get hospitalized becuase she said I need to give my new medication time to work. She was or is right that is what I would have told my patient ( Former Medic). I think they don't beleive me when I try to tell them I am having muscle spasm. That is one reason I tryed to get hospitalized,so they can see them. I have a intern at the va who has done more for me than any of the md's.He recognized that my knee pain was due to nerve pain and gave me an antidpressant, which maybe causing my polynueropathy. He has recently gave me somthing for my muscle spasms. It has yet to take effect. I think alot of this new recognition to possible nerve damage is due to dr. hayely's ( sorry missed spelled).
They are using antipressant for treatment for gulf vet. They still are using let blem it on the vet --smoking, Ptsd.
What I need is support because my symtoms are not geting better.I need finacial and emtional help. I don't have the money or the time to find a cure. Help.
