I've had a few battles with pleurisy the last one was about 4 weeks ago and I believe I have another one right now. No biggy in most circumstances except the last one caused a chain reaction and my meds were changed. It indicated this last flare that I'm still currently in was getting worse. Now I'm off of work on medical leave and I'm supposed to return on monday the 28th. Well if this is pleurisy I'm experiencing my thought would be that my doc is going to have me take off more time from work and I'm not sure what she plans on doing with my meds this time around. Here is the deal. I went to call their office and they are closed until Monday the 28th!!! I have military medical coverage so I don't really trust the docs on the base but now I'm stuck with them. I called and spoke with a nurse and he even said that he doesn't think any of the docs in my PCM office will touch me or do anything for me. So now what do I do?? I HAVE to return to work if I don't have a DR. Note and with the physical condition I'm in I know it would be impossible. I'm hurting so bad right now and my chest hurts so bad. I'm not sure what to do from this point. Any advice??
