Yeah he's been there and they weren't very much help but that was a year or two ago. I've suggested crohns as well... His doctor for some reason threatens to drop him as a patient if he goes to a major hospital and wont even do a colonoscopy on him.
He's seeing a doctor at a family health clinic.. He can't afford a nice doctor so he pays for 5$ to see this lady and she just seems crazy to me. Says he can't go to the hospital E.R or she'll drop him, that if he misses another appointment (when he's canceled a few times because of severe pain or unable to leave). He can't seem to get into another doctor for the same price range. It just is a real mess every way he turns its just crap.. Seems like no one wants to help him since he has no money or no insurance. Hospitals are even horrible to him. (asking if he's a vampire and ***** blood and treats him like he has AIDS even though hes been tested several times and they were negative)
As for what the dr says about crohns she wont give him a colonoscopy I dont know why, as a doctor, she can not get him those tests. makes no sense to me. .
They said his results were clean, so i'm assuming that means they found nothing. and no he has not been there, he has a hard time riding in the car or going outside, there is stuff going on in his head that he feels hes crazy. I will pitch the idea to him but its so hard. He is waiting on a medical card response and social security said he had to have a diagnosis to apply. I've thought about calling people, I worry about if there is anyone out there who would have compassion ? but its worth a shot.
Call around and see; give it a go. All they can say is no and what do you have to lose. Granted, there are less and less compassionate people as the days go by, but there is that chance you will find that someone who will listen and help. You should call Cincy and explain what is going on and see if they will take you first before making a trip if your bf is agreeable. Hopefully, you can find someone close. When you call these medical facilities, MAKE SURE YOU SPEAK WITH THE OFFICE MANAGER OR WHOEVER'S IN CHARGE.
Meanwhile, will this so called "doctor" even check him for Lyme's? This is a lab or labs.
Yes it was of his brain, he also had a ct scan of his brain as well both came up clean. They said that lyme was ruled out because his scans were clean but that isn't a very extensive test and from what other people have told me its very very hard to determine if you even have lyme.
As soon as I can I will gather all the information on doctors around here and start calling probably in the next day or so.
