I've been feeling really.. well, not normal lately. Lot's of chest pain and drowsiness, not sleeping well though, and get night sweats like crazy.
I finally got to see my doctor today, and the first thing that they realize when I walked in was "Oh, we lost all of your shot records and need to make sure we have those done."
They gave me a shot for chicken pox, Hepatitis A, and Menengitis, which I've already had previously. I was waiting in the exam room, and the nurse walked in. (I didn't know what shots I needed yet) She walks in with three needles, and I ask "Which vaccines are these?" And she replies "Yes, they are vaccines." I was like okay, wow. So I tried another stab at explaning my question, forgot exactly what I asked. She replies with "Yes, one shot in the right arm, and two in the left." I was starting to lose it, and finally got an answer.
Get all my shots, doctor comes back in to finish up the physical. He tells me to reach for my toes. I'm just over 6' tall, so its not easy for me to get down there. I couldn't reach, and he said "Oh you have scoliosis." I was like really? You can tell by not even feeling my spine or looking at it, but just by me not being able to reach my toes? He writes a slip for me to get an X-ray at the Hospital across the street.
Moved on over to another building to get my blood samples done... I haven't given blood prior to today so it was a hell of an experience. A nice nurse comes out, asks if I have drawn blood before and I told her no. She tells me I'm going to have fun.. Sarcastically of course. I don't necessarily have a fear of needles, but I'd raher not know one is being stuck inside me. There are just some things you don't joke around about with a patient, and that made me more nervous.
Hurt like shit. I'm a skinny guy. Woman took a good 2-3 tubes of my precious blood, and afterward gave me a little container to pee in. I forgot about this part before leaving the house, and used the bathroom before I left. Great. So I'm in the bathroom trying to squeeze out whatever I have left in me, and I begin feeling woozy and I'm huddled over the toilet ready to explode.
Luckily for me nothing happened, and I finally got my pee outta there.
I swear if nothing shows up in those samples then I'm going to be pissed. My arms are way sore and I can't even pick up my guitar to play it.
Enough of my sob story, I just felt the need to share. I don't go to the doctors often, but I wish they had treated me a little better.
Anyone else have bad experiences like this?
