I had an appointment with my Immunologist yesterday and it didn’t go as I thought it would.
A total disappointment this time. He laid out that my Hypogammaglobulinemia isn’t bad enough and insurance will only approve Antibody Infusion Treatments if I have been on antibiotics several times in one year. I didn’t understand that from our last appointment.
He did order a complete set of labs to see how my body is doing but I don’t think that is going to make much difference.
My ear has been bleeding and he found it was infected and prescribed a short-term antibiotic.
I go back in three weeks to see how the antibiotic is working and discuss my lab results.
He did take a look at the physical symptoms overview I shared with him and he encouraged me to see a Neurologist. I have a referral for a Rheumatologist at this time and will go from there. If no diagnosis comes out of the Rheumatologist then I’ll go see a Neurologist.
