I might as well annoy as many as I can...

Well, I suppose the entire medical community is pissed at me now.

After the brain scan Friday (yes, they did find one) I've been waiting to hear for some results. The ophthalmologist thought maybe sinus pressure was inflaming the optic nerve far enough back where he couldn't see it. The antibiotics are kicking in to the point where I think my sinus infection is receding. But my eyes are getting worse, not better.

The brain scan came back with no indications as to a cause for my vision problems. So I am pressing Dr. Jujube for the next step. My sister got into it with Doc Aruba's nurse who didn't understand why I regarded this as such a big deal. Dr. Jujube's office gave me a note for work, they had to know I can't drive, can't work and haven't been able to for a week. How's that not a big deal? Jujube and Aruba are in the same office for pity's sake, and I only have one chart that they both use. They had to be aware that I was on pins and needles waiting for test results. After my brush with Dr. Jujube Thursday, his nurse and I went at it mildly today.

I hate this kind of hassle. It looks like it's time for me to name a new primary care physician. I have to have a designated PCP in order for my insurance to pay.
