Keep taking the tablets — 9 Comments

  1. Frustrating not to have a conclusive diagnosis, but at least you have found a treatment that helps. In an above comment, Judy mentioned how expensive health care is in the U.S. Sadly true, and I am more than a little envious of what you have. In the U.S., the way conservatives screech every time the issue of universal health care is raised, you would think that universal cruises and caviar were being proposed instead of health care. But Judy is right. This subject requires another post. Maybe many other posts.

  2. I’m glad you have a regime which works. And have reached a point of peace with the situation. What you’ve said in the wider context here makes very good sense.

  3. Ah Jonathan, I’m sorry to hear that. I guess the frustration is simply not knowing what it is, however controllable it is with medication. I hope that it continues to be manageable

  4. This is a thought provoking post on a lot of levels. I sincerely hope everything keeps working out for you so you can stay active, but it is always good to have a diagnosis to go with the problem and the plan. We’ve also moved past just ‘keep taking the tablets.’ That is what they told us years ago before Google to research our symptoms, the side effects of certain medications, and the interactions between medicines. As you can probably tell, I’ve spent a lot of time researching. For instance, the dentist prescribed a medication for a dental problem my husband had but even though he told him about another medication he takes, I still found that you can’t take them together. You might as well poison yourself. So, we threw the prescription out, and here in the US we pay for everything medical and the cost in a lot of cases is exorbitant. But, that would require another post. 🙂 Take care, and I hope everything stays on an even keel for you.

  5. Glad you didn’t have to pay for the extra’s and that you got some answers, often times it seems that answers are not that useful. its more stay the course despite the issues, I know that I am finding that with my mom.. they run the tests, they do the follow up and then go.. this is the best we can do.. stay the course.
