Hi -- very relieved that you're OK.
This might sound a bit presumptuous, especially since I'm not in your shoes,
but I find your doc's assessment troubling in light of your rather dramatic
I'm forever repeating the mantra "be guided by your clinician" but I have to ask:
is your doc pressed for time or perhaps dismissive of you as a patient?? You can tell
I'm looking for a polite periphrasis for the rather blunt question of his credentials/training/skills.
I realize that we all have to take control of our health and do our homework, and be our own advocates
but you experienced a potentially serious problem -- circulatory system involvement isn't like a rash
or something.
What will happen when you take another AD? It would be nice to know if there is something unique about
you that caused this response, especially so it can be prevented??
Can you go to the ER if something similar happens -- and the HMO can deal with it later?
Just thinking out loud.
Be well and good luck with your trip.
