You ask a really good question. When you see the head specialist tomorrow, perhaps you can ask him/her why follow-up with your regular doctor is needed. Then if you find out two appointments aren't needed, you can cancel the other.
Hope you get back good results. Please give us an update if you have a chance,
Hello Purplemoon0130 and thanks for posting today! I also appreciate you sharing your thoughts with other members in their posts.
There are a number of things that can cause fingers to stick and pop, such as Trigger Finger and various forms of arthritis. Whether or not Lyrica could be causing your symptoms is something your doctor or pharmacist could explore with you.
Please let us know what you find out and I hope you get some relief soon!
Your pharmacist is a good resource of information on appropriate over-the-counter medications. However, if your wife feels she needs to be seen right away, then it's important that she gets checked out. Only you and your wife can make that decision about the ER.
Hello Mbbuffy and thank you for posting about your dad.
I know it's been a few days since you posted and I was wondering how your dad was doing. Unfortunately, we don't have any health experts on this community.
It sounds like you're doing all you can for your dad, and I hope the expert you see in a couple of weeks has some answers for your dad. You may want to call that doctor's office and ask them if they can get your father in sooner if they have a cancellation.
I'm sorry to hear you weren't able to be able to take part in the free dental fair. Your idea to contact the dentists who participated is an excellent one. I hope one (or more!) of them respond positively to you.
I'll keep hoping you get one of the weekly clinic spots. Can you get a friend or family member to try and call for you on their own phone? That might improve your chances of claiming a spot.
Thanks for continuing with the updates. I'm cheering you on!
Unfortunately, we don't have any health experts on this commiunity. Even if we did, a geneticist or hematologist is probably the person who can best answer your questions about your daughter. He or she would be able to go over tests and records with you and give you an expert opinion on matters.
