9/15/13- Paula's Eating/Exercise Journal: Sunday

by Paula (Clean Eating Expert) 13. September 2013 08:00

I’m going to get on my soapbox for just a moment; you need to be your most important advocate about your health! This includes with doctors and with insurance companies. 

This comes up for me because I showed symptom’s recently of a UTI.  I went into the doctor’s office and asked them to test my urine (asking not to be charged my $45 ‘specialist’ co-pay because I was not seeing a doctor).  They said the test came up negative.  I thought there was no way.  I know what a UIT feels like.  The next day I didn’t call, I just showed up at the doctor office and asked them to run the test again/.  This time it came up high in the bad numbers.  After talking to the doctor on the phone, he realized that I had a bladder infection (I have been prone to this when I was younger).

I stood up for myself, and after being on meds for 24 hours, I feel much better.  If you have a gut feeling about your health…LISTEN!
