I remember when things were simple, I had one doctor for all of my needs. Now, I just feel overwhelmed most of the time and I'm never sure who to go to. I try to go see the PCP for new, routine, or general illness. I started feeling bad yesterday, as if a cold or sinus infection were coming on so I took NyQuil and got the best nights sleep in months. Today everything hurts, mostly my bones and muscles. My pulmonologist wants to stay on top of respiratory infections, my rheumatologist wants to watch for fibromyolgic flare ups, the orthopeadic doctor wants to be informed of increased pain in my thoracic spine...etc. Normally this wouldn't be an issue, but I think I am just getting very overwhelmed with all that's going on with my health.BTW, today the AQI is not the best. Around 61. The humidity is not bad at all for South La, only 54%, the temp is 94 but feels like 101. I'm trying to keep a health journal for my doctors to see if any or which wheather conditions may be triggering these symptoms.
