In ER a month ago with dizziness.
Dr. appt. a week later. More Rx. changes. More dizziness. 73 yrs. widow, live alone. Have car to drive myself as necessary.
More dizziness, called clinic, sent BACK to ER, was there a few hrs. Then admitted into hosp. bed. Due to being there one month before - for dizziness, was kept for observation. No new tests, as many were done on first ER. Sent home, Suppositories for vomitting, even vomitted in outer room, while waiting for taxi to take me home.
Called MY clinic three times in a day-due to dizziness. A week later, dr. appt. I was given-double" LL.s"for calling too many times, telling women DR. ASST.s about continued dizziness Blood draw at appt. to check Potassium & Magnesium, as other 'draws' showed these were low.
Call from clinic following day, both Potassium & Magnesium are at good levels, go OFF Potassium, take rest of Magnesium Oxide I received a Rx. for in hosp. Call when gone for a new Rx. from your doctor, I'm diabetic, on Metformin 500mg. 1-twice a day. Take Levoxyl. 81gr. Asp. Was taken OFF HCTZ after the last hosp stay.
I'm discouaged and frustrated due to being given double "LLs' at dr. visit for calling.
I thought my dr. & clinic & his asst.s were there to ask questions of WHEN A CONDITION IS continuing, I'm thinking I'm wrong to believe this. Fran
