I need medical advice - Do you think the internist (no names) is just covering herself
For the past year I wasnt feeling well. What would happen but not on an ongoing basis but it was happening more and more: I would bend over in certain ways and have pain in my stomach and I couldnt catch my breath. So I went to a clinic near my house because I thought that they would be able to help. They gave me all kinds of steriods thinking it was an allergy. But I kept getting worse. So I found a female internist in my neighborhood that I went to two months ago. She thinks it might be acid reflux so I am taking medication for that. However, two months ago when I saw the internist she wanted me to come back to her office for a songram but not right away. So her secretary scheduled the songram for a month later (not immediately). However, the day (in May) of the songram I realized that my insurance company may not cover the songram so I called my insurance company and they said they do cover songrams. But because I called the insurance company the day of the songram I realzied I had to reschedule the songram. The songram is supposed to be this Saturday - a month after the first songram I was going to have that I had to cancel. When I called the internists office two days ago to find out if I really needed the songram because I am feeling terrific except for a little queasiness the secretary said "The songram is just to be on the safe side, even if the songram doesnt show anything"
So should I still take the songram or is the doctor just trying to cover herself? I feel great.
