Recently I had an appointment w/ a health professional she came out to interview me. We will call her X . X stayed for an hour and a half asking me all kinds of questions about my health condition, my past and basically my history the ups and the downs. I shared w/ her that I think my doctors hands are tied because the insurance company doesn’t want to spend the money on me due to my CFID and Fibromyalgia. X said that I call the doctors a lot because of different health complaints. She said I am under what its called “under an umbrella” that means since I have CFID and the body attacks itself that the doctors are to treat my symptoms. Big QUESTION when do I come out from under the UMBRELLA?
A recent example I kept having some chest discomfort and I was repeatedly put on inhalers that made me feel worse this went on for yrs until the doctors finally sent me to the GI doctor. The GI doctor found a health condition that I am being treated for, so in the mean time I had to suffer.
I am having repeated acute stabbing pain in my appendix area and my stomach swells so big that it puts pressure on my me because my stomach is flat. I cannot move, sit, walk or lie down the pain is horrendous.
When I go to the hospital the doctor thinks I may have a ruptured appendix. I am put on Moraphine and a Cat Scan is taken and nothing is there. This is starting to become more frequent and at times will act up a few times a week. I keep being told to take Donnatol for IBS and I still had a flair. I am tired of hospitals and ambulance co pays they all add up. because I am “under an umbrella” I am not being sent to a GI doctor. Could it be from the CFID or is there something happening to me that warrants the care of a specialist?
Aren’t we all flowers under an UMBRELLA
