I'm going to make an appointment with a new GP soon, and hopefully get a good physical check-over. I'm sure none of you will be surprised, due to the incompetent-ness of my last couple of doctors, but I really haven't had any form of physical check since... last March, so 18 months ago. That's the majority of my ED. That was when I had my first ED-related medical admission, followed by inpatient. I got the full run - bloods, ECGs, x-rays, scans of all sorts, bone densitometry scans, the whole shebang. Since then? I didn't see a GP until last December, with my last medical admission, and then a couple more appointments a few months ago. I haven't had a proper blood test since December, because the one my GP did there wasn't enough blood so a lot of results didn't come back. I check my blood pressure at home but only once has it 'been checked' this year. I haven't had my heart checked in any form for 18 months, though I know my heart-rate is yet again back to tachycardia ranges (currently resting 120-160 BPM, when I was in the 80s two months ago), and I'm pretty sure it's irregular. I get weird chest pains more often these days but I don't know if it's my heart or lungs. I have no clue if I've damaged my bone density, or even had stress fractures from over-exercising, in the last year and a half, which is when I've done the bulk of the damage to my body. I'm just getting paranoid about my health lately, but I just have these niggling fears... don't even get me started on the damage I may've done from hitting my head so badly this year.
After I see my dietician on Tuesday, I don't have any appointments for four weeks. Scary, I know. One week she's not working, then she's booked out, then she's not working again. So that's a four week gap. I
Maybe I do.
