Seeing my General Practitioner this week left me with conflicting emotions. In one way, he’s tried more treatments than any other doctor ever has. But, I haven’t had any long-term benefits in my overall health.
I’ve been actually annoyed at many things that I keep hearing from him. He’s pushing hard for me to take Ozone Treatments at $100 a treatment. This would cost $1000 per month. He wants to put “ozone” into my veins. Even as an alternative treatment, I can’t find any “ozone into the vein” information online. This seems very sketchy to me. It’s also very expensive.
He spoke this week about “EDS” using quote signs, and rolling his eyes. This sign that he thinks that it’s not even real infuriated me.
This doctor doesn’t take insurance and everything I do there comes out of my pocket. He and the NP there refused vaccinations and both caught covid. They gave me a prescription for oral Ivermectin in case we caught it from them. They don’t wear masks in the office. He also told me that Hydroxychloroquine would keep me from getting covid.
When I first started going to him, I felt I was getting help. He started me on Low Dose Naltrexone and it seemed like I was having more energy. But, after a couple of months that energy was gone. Although I continue taking it, I’m completely drained every day. I get an occasional day where I have more energy, but the next day it’s gone.
No matter what, I only get rid of pain with high doses of Advil. I’m never offered any type of Opiod, even though taking it after surgery certainly helped my overall pain.
I’m seriously considering leaving this doctor and searching for a typical general practitioner. I really dread searching for a new doctor, when I don’t even feel like making appointments for many other pressing needs: Bone Density tests, Gynocology, Eye doctor, and getting CPAP supplies at the Medical Supply Store.
Deep down, I feel like I need to find someone that I trust and who is on the same page with me. What do you think? I’d love your advice. Thanks
