I had some autoimmune blood work done last week. The lab told me it would take about one week to get results and then they would send the results back to my ENT (Ear Nose and Throat Specialist) doctor.
I’m supposed to see the ENT on April 11 to get results.
Today, my family doctor called and asked me to come in for the results. When I asked him if it could wait until April 11 when I go and see the ENT, I was told that I needed the results sooner, rather than later.
The earliest appointment that I could get from my family doctor was next week.
So now my mind is running a million miles a minute. He wouldn’t call me into his office if there was nothing, right? Or would he? What’s wrong with me? Is this going to be a diagnosis, or just leave me with more questions? Why do I have to wait until next week if it’s so freaking important for me to get these results?
Anxiety, old friend, it’s not nice to see you again.
