I have been on metformin, besides the HORRIABLE gas, and diareha , which wasent too bad at first since I have always had a hard time going regular" , but now I have added lipitor,. and mind you just ONE pill !! and my arm and leg and knee pain is unbearable !!!! AND I am on pain meds, so I have NO idea how bad this is really hurting, I am not taking the lipitor again until I talk to my doctor. thier inlays ANOTHER problem !! MY doctor is 45 mins away from me, I only went back to her, because she IS through, and does alot of test . that I like. but when I ask or even tell her I HAVE to have my anxiety meds, she wont budge, and I am sorry I have a high tolerence through DNA, and my own life . I am not a drug addict, I know what I need them for, and only take them when NEEDED. but I cant drive 45 min to her office when I am in full blown panic attack mode !! So I have had to reschedule apts, but ALWAYS making a new one, and ALWAYS telling where my blood G levels are/ I am just starting to get better numbers, I started with 10 mil of levimer in am, and 5 mil of humalog after meals, I am now 3 weeks later, up to 30 mil if levimer in am, and 15 mil of humlog after meals . my last blood test was 191/ BETTER than I have seen in 2 years !! Normally it is 366,. or worse !! I AGAIN have a BV infection, that her nurse KINDLY explained that my dr would NOT call in the gel I NEED until I SEE her !!! Now also this dr ALWAYS does a breast exam, and I am SURE will want to do ANOTHER pap on me just to prove YES< I have a BV infection !!! and I also belive I have a kidney infection, my pee has alot of protein in it, and it smells and my back is killing me, *( kidney area) on both sides !!! I HAVE to find a NEW dr. this one cant even call in a cream !!!! she is making me suffer for NO reason !! She has treated me for this before KNOWS I get them every mth almost and wont wrote the gel , WTH !!! I AM VENTING < sorry I am very upset today, I feel like I am doing EVERYTHING to help myself get better, and I cant find a doctor to give a xxxx, Uknow ?? MY insurance wont pay for a nutrionist, I MAY be able to see a endo, I am calling about them tomorrow , But I am sure they will ONLY treat the diabetes, not ALL my other problems ...... I am going to start with the coconut oil in my coffee in the am, I am still not sure WHY yall use heavy cream ? But I use reg creamer, doesent seem to bother my BG . I also use a sugar free vanilla syrup that helps with sweetness, as I cant stand splenda, and artificial sugars... OK< gotta go .... WILL write more VERY SOON !!! gotta go eat dinner, and take humalog . and metformin ....
