And the Doctor Says...

Went to the doctor today.

Other than an emergent trip a few months ago, I haven't been since we moved here.


Did I mention I have white coat syndrome?

Especially with new docs?

I know, I know...I live with a doc.

Maybe it's because of The Doc.

That's another post.

So, the new doc says I have tendonitis in both shoulders.

He gave me some good drugs to help.

He thinks I have a Vitamin D deficiency.

(Really!?!  I was in the sun ALL SUMMER!)

He drew blood to find out.

I have arthritis.

Not RA, but old fashioned you did too many sports, arthritis.

He made me get a tetanus shot.

I gotta say...

I really like this new guy!

He's funny.

He's smart.

And he spent almost 45 minutes with me.

Have you EVER had a doctor spend that much time with you?

I spend more time in doctor's offices than I'd like to talk about. My rheumatologist is the best.
In the past year I've had two injections in my shoulders. They are NO fun.

I shy away from doc visits...I don't want to hear them tell me how horrible my cholesterol is and what I need to do to fix it. :o)

He did say he could give me injections if using the drugs and wearing the bands didn't help. He seemed to think it all would help, though. (fingers crossed!)

Right now the darn shot site is the worst of it all!
