|What would make YOU go to the doctor?|
But the older I get, the more I wonder about new aches and pains and whether they might be something to take to my doctor. First of all, my pal Dr. Whitehead has moved on to another office and now I've got a new doctor to break in, and I don't even remember his name. I did remember that he's a D.O., a doctor of osteopathy. I needed to look it up to find out what that is. Basically, it's a medical doctor who has also been trained in physical manipulation, sort of like a chiropractor, I guess. I''ll find out.
Anyway, my sister and I both have blood pressure cuffs at home to keep track, and we also both go to the doctor at least annually. But last night I woke up with a pain in my bad hip, and after tossing and turning for awhile I finally got comfortable again. I debated about calling the doctor today, but it's much better in the light of day. I'll wait for awhile. After all, what could possibly go wrong?
