Saturday June 10 2017. The wait time was under 20 min and the young lady who checked us in was very nice. We were taken back and all vitals were done and put into a room to wait for a Doctor...
No... more doctor, should have been told to us before we paid, a Nurse Practioner stepped into the room. After a few moments of him asking why I was in the UC, the decision was to run a quick test and we could then proceed.
I did, in my repeat of my medical ailments I have, mention that I was a T2 Diabetic. I also stated that I see my regular doctor every 4 months and do blood work, I am as good as can be.
I will share with you my syptoms of 3 days at this piont... watery stool, nausea, vomiting, headache, dizziness, upper neck pain, mid back pain, loss of appetite, fever of over 101°, cramping in abomin.
So, he says we are checking for unitary tract infection. I'm fine with that. It came back negative. Good news and not.
Then it began.... he tall me it was my high Blood Sugar. ..I don't have high BS.... it was tested and was in the 170s that is high for me...the spike was because of my fever! My BS that morning and lunch had been in the 120s. I understand diabetes. For the next 15 min my husband and we're told what it was that we need to do to keep me under control. He even wrote down holistic tips for me...what to eat, drink and how to stay away from carbs.
I cut him off and asked what his diagnosis of my symptoms were...you have a virus! What? He prescribed me 3 medications. We went home.
I get worse and the meds don't work.. it's not a Virus!!!!!
Mon. June 12th ...A day and a half later I'm in the ER! They figure out by LISTENING to my syptoms that i have food poisoning! And, I am severely dehydrated! The ER Doctors both said that I was lucky that I came in...one of the comments was that the first tip off of an infection is a fever! These were easy to identify by the doctors before any testing was done!
DO NOT TAKE A LOVED ONE HERE! ITs NOT WORTH THE RISK! AND HEY MY N.P., SHUT UP AND LISTEN!
I am reposting this on all the FB sites I am a member of. I feel that I could have been treated better.
