I need to find out more about the 2nd stage response and how it is supposed to work. I have one flight of stairs before I leave and walk a block and two more flights to get to my office. By that time my heart is racing and I feel like I could collapse right there at the top of the stairs.

Have you mentioned this to your doctor?

In the past they have given me medication to slow down my heart, but I can't take it all the time because it makes my heart beat too slow. I've been going to the same group of doctors for about 26 years and they never know who I am when I come in and have never looked at the file. It's like meeting a stranger and starting over every time. I have to say what I have to say in 5 minutes and they are writing a script and out the door. Three times they have sent me to a cardiologist but I've never been asked to come in for a follow up. A nurse will call and say you are fine, everything is within normal range. I am done accepting that. Yesterday I demanded to see my blood tests and actually got them for the first time. My doctor is on vacation so I am seeing them before he does.

If anyone knows of a good doctor in the Richmond, VA area, I am open to change, as long as my insurance covers.

My doctor is the same way. He only wanted to know the A1C and didn't look at my logs either. I don't know if it that they don't trust our glucometers or think that the patients fudge on their logs. Both the local hospital and the doctor that I see (who is part of a large medical group of diverse doctors) now have online medical records, where you can see the results of the tests that they do.
