What to do if you are diagnosed with a rare illness
Posted July 03, 2018 16:34:33 What to say to doctors when they inform you of a rare and serious illness?
That’s what we wanted to do with our series on rare and very serious illnesses.
But before we start, we wanted you to know how to take the news about your rare illness in a way that’s easy for you to understand.
We’ve rounded up a few common questions you might be asking to help you better understand your symptoms and how they can affect your health.
For instance, how can I keep track of my medications?
When you are sick, you might want to know what your medications are, what their dosage is and how much they’re supposed to be taken.
If you’re having trouble with your medications, you can ask your doctor about the dosage and the specific brand you have.
Your doctor can also check the label to make sure the medication you are taking is safe and effective for you.
If the label says you need more than the recommended dose, check the labels to see what other medications are available.
Do I need to visit my doctor?
It’s important to make the right choice when deciding if you should visit your doctor.
Your GP may prescribe an extra dose of a medicine that you don’t need.
If your doctor is prescribing an extra medicine, make sure you’re aware of the extra dose and how to use it.
Some medicines can cause side effects, including vomiting, diarrhoea, abdominal pain and dizziness.
The same goes for antibiotics, and they can cause serious side effects.
But if you’re comfortable with taking the medicine, it’s safe and should not affect your wellbeing.
You can find out how to see a GP for any medicines you’re taking.
What if I need a blood test?
If you have a serious and rare illness that requires a blood draw, you need to make an appointment with your doctor to make a blood sample.
The tests may include: a blood clot test
