6 doctors in a week!

I've seen six doctors in a week.

1. Family Med Doctor from Intellicare advised me it was vertigo and prescribed betahistine. She told me to check with an EENT. (January 30, 2009)

2. EENT Doctor at Makati Med told me that my ear drums were fine. It's just diet, lifestyle, and stress. (February 2, 2009)

3. ER Doctor at Makat Med just gave me meds and asked me to continue with betahistine. He advised me to see a neurologist because I had head trauma when I was a kid, it was my second attack and my ears were fine, and i was under medication but it still had the symptoms. (February 4, 2009 close to midnight)

4. EENT Doctor from UST asked me to do several tests. He changed my medicine to stugeron and prescribed vitamins. I will go back to him once the test results are in. (February 6, 2009)

(Tests were scheduled for February 16, 2009.)

5. Optha Doctor from UST advised me my eye pressure was ok. I had 20/70 without glasses but 20/20 with glasses. Nothing wrong with my eyes. (February 6, 2009)

6. Neurologist Doctor from St. Lukes told me that the medicine the second EENT doctor gave me was good and the tests too. He asked me to do the test and come back to him if the EENT doctor has tested me negative for peripheral vertigo. (February 6, 2009)

(He requested the tests too and I checked with St. Lukes if theirs were faster. I was scheduled for tests this coming February 10, 2009, Tuesday.)

*sighs* I was so tired last Friday...
