Quoting Chroma Hex [+1]:" I'm guessing you can read your medical records online? That is really odd. I'm sure she's just going at it according to procedure. "
Yeah, I can. I have Kaiser, so all my test results generally pop up. The ANA never did. So when I found out it was reordered, I thought maybe they didn't run it. She said they did, it was negative, but I guess she wants to rerun it just to be sure. I just wish she had added any of this information when she'd ordered it. I got a letter in the mail just telling me to go to the lab, haha. If they do that, especially a week AFTER hearing everything is good and here's our treatment plan, they should include what htey're testing for and why, you know? Instead of ordering something out of no where.
Oh well. I think it just frustrated me because it could have been so easy to do it in a way that doesn't stress out a patient.
I'll go tonight and do the test, and Monday I have my appointment to discuss treatment options, since the muscle relaxers just aren't cutting it. Today I went to the park with the kids and my oldests Teacher and I for SURE overdid it. I'd worked out at home a bit because I didn't expect to go today, but the teacher wanted to and I feel stupid saying no.
I hurt SO MUCH now. My knees and shoulders/arm area are killing me, and for some reason my ribs in the front are aching really bad too. But I didn't want to be like "we need to go home." I hate this some days, because I feel like I should just suck it up. she wants to go out tomorrow too, but it's so hard because i have to chase after the 18 month old and carry him and all of that, and I don't know if I can do that tomorrow.
sigh. I can't wait to try something for treatment.
