Back to the Doc

Four days on and showing little signs of improvement both Anita and Bex are back at the Doc. A different doctor at the recommendation of colleagues and hopefully one who knows his stuff a little better.
The problem here is that some doctors are less reliable. They tend to diagnose Malaria and UTI for everyone regardless of their conditions. There maybe some sort of kickback from the drugs companies. Either way Anita has ‘malaria’ and Bex has ‘UTI’, ‘malaria’ and amoeba infection. One or all may or may not be true, but as Anita is still washed out and Bex a raging headache and dizziness to replace the stomach cramps – it’s time for a second opinion. They certainly don’t want to be taking unnecessary drugs and missing out on the necessary ones.

UPDATE
Bex

  • has not got Amoeba Infection
  • should not have been prescribed one of her drugs – long term use would be dangerous.
  • has got a UTI and Gastritis

Anita

  • has not got Malaria
  • has got a UTI

All in all the previous doctor got it almost completely wrong. Today’s doctor gave a significantly better experience – UK standard (yes the UK does have an NHS to be proud of!)

For local expats – Bio Health Clinic is the place to go and Dr Mubarak the doctor to see!
