Note: The current game is due to tingling/burning sensations in extremeties after fainting.
I seem to be caught up in a game that the medical community calls "pass the patient."
The rules appear to be the same as hot potato that I played as a kid.
Here is how the typical game works:
Dr. GP- "call the neurologist, I don't want to deal with this."
Dr. P- "Call Dr.N I don't know what to do."
Dr. N's answering service- "They don't take call! go to the ER or call tomorrow.
Dr. N's nurse- "Sure he will look at your chart- in three days. Or just go to ER. I don't want to deal with this."
Dr. GP's partner- take some extra medicine and go to bed. Call Dr GP tomorrow- and then call Dr. N.
Dr ER's probable response- I don't know what to do. Just go home and follow up with your own dr next week.
Whoever gets the complicated patient loses the game. whoever takes the patient and figures out the problem wins extra points for good deeds, and cheese straws at Christmas.
I know that everyone is frustrated. I just want an answer.
Go with God.
