One sees these specialists, one specialist tells you one thing, another tells you something else. That's their job, and they cannot see outside 'the box' that is their speciality, while we, the patient, the person, the human is forgotten. We are just our illness, just our symptoms. I always try and treat my patients as I would like to be treated, or how I would like my family to be treated. Some professionals just do not seem to have this same attitude.
My coccyx still hurts, my piriformis (well, right butt cheek anyway) has started being really sore again.
I feel fed up, and disillusioned by healthcare professionals once again.
I am playing the waiting game now regarding my heart. I am at a standstill with my coccydynia and piriformis. I have made a GP appointment for a weeks time. I have decided to take control and ask to see a cardiologist.
Paracetamol, Tramadol, my ring donut cushion and heat pad are my salvation at the moment; that and having an understanding and loving family. I appreciate that I still have much to be thankful for.
I have used this before, but will use it again, as it sums up how I feel, and makes me smile!
