I am still trying to find a doctor. It is hard because I am very sick, as well as disabled, so I need urgent care, as well as access to care, and can’t get either.
I have been struggling with awful right-side headaches, including right eye and ear pain, on and off for I don’t know how long. I thought these were just migraines but apparently the eye and ear pain point to cluster or “suicide” headaches. Oh, and if they are cluster or “suicide” headaches, I’m allergic to the main treatment.
I have Medicaid via Aetna. I was assigned a pediatrician as my primary care provider, she doesn’t work with patients my age, I have to find someone else. I have a list of doctors and their pain numbers, but I don’t know who else is misclassified, who will work as a primary care physician, who can work with my disabilities. I saw that one of these doctors had workd with concussion patients, and they often have similar neurological issues to mine. So she probably could work with my disabilities. But to begin with, I have to contact her by pain. And after 9 times friday, and 6 times today, I am no closer to getting through. aa aa aa aa aa aa goes the busy signal. I hate making pain calls, which trigger my headaches, during my headaches, worsening my headaches.
How the fuck am I supposed to get through this?
