Wow, resting pulse has been up to 158 on new medicine, BP 90/60. Pulse was 86 before new medicine. Called doctor. They said to take more new medicine. Because I would want my pulse to be even higher and my blood pressure to be even lower? Yes, great idea.
They said go to ER if it gets worse. How 'bout back on the old medicine, which I'm out of? Cheaper and more effective. Good grief. I want out of the house, not trying to keep my heart rate low!
My friend says that her doctor told her the only thing he can do for her pain is to take her out back and shoot her. When Dr. Needles made a couple of similar jokes with me several years ago, that was the last straw, though I never said anything about it. I just didn't go back and chose to deal with the pain on my own for a few more years. I remember saying during surgery prep, when they were sticking needles into me to check function, "I'd never let Dr. Needles stick needles into me!" Physical pain I'll deal with; abuse, no.
