  •  I feel pretty good about UW (8+ / 0-)

    But at the same time, I would really like to at least get on meds that stabilize me. As noted up-thread, maybe there are tartration issues. Dunno, but it's scary as hell.

    •  Don't be afraid to be your own advocate. (10+ / 0-)

      If your physician says or does anything that you question, tell him/her you need more information and ask questions of your physician(s) until you are sure you've asked all of them and he/she has answered your questions to YOUR satisfaction.  And, IF you find you are not comfortable with what that person is suggesting for your treatment or does not explain things to you thoroughly and clearly----find another physician.  Madison has a lot of physicians and clinics so there's no shortage of them in that area.  My own physician told me from the beginning that when she makes decisions about treatment for me, she said "I always think of this: if you were my sister or my mother, how would I treat you."  Works for me!
