GI Doc Appt - 2/2/15

Posted by netsavy006 , 02 February 2015 · 87 views

I went to my GI doctor today. It went well.

I let him know that I was having return of my acid reflux, so because of this he increased my pantoprazole.

He also ordered blood work which I was able to do downstairs from his office.

The other thing is that he wants me to do an endoscopy so I have that scheduled for 2 Wednesdays from today.

So that was m...

It went very well.

So as some of you may be aware of, I've been having nausea this past week. In addition, I've been having a lot of burning in my throat.

I went for my pdoc appt today.

When he asked how I was doing, I told him that while my anxiety is normal, I'm still having restlessness. (Dr), knowing I'm on Lithium, he asked if I was drinking enough water, and I told him that I am. He feels that maybe my lithium level is up and that might be causing the restlessness.

To see if this is the case, he i...
