I was wondering if it is important to have every test result in my file or not, too often I find that either the results are confusing, or I don't know what the test was for....I find that talking directly to my doctor and asking what the test results are and what they show quickly gives me the answers I need without the worrying about things I don't understand or questioning the minute changes in the results. Of course I understand not everyone has the kind of doctor I have or the doctor doesn't have time enough to spend talking over everything. My doctor gives me an overview of what the tests are showing and how that is affecting her decisions on what meds I am on are new ones I am starting. For me knowing the reasons for meds and what the side effects are, as well as how the disease is progressing, leaning toward lupus or ra at this time is helpful. For me it is scarier to see something in the test and if I cannot check it out with the doctor it stresses me out and makes symptoms worse. For me too much info that I don't understand is too much for my state of mind. Just something to think about. Now if I was planning on seeing a new doctor who doesn't know my history I would need the tests, but I have already seen the specialists and they know what is going on.
