Diary of Unknown Symptoms

Mystery of the Internal Vibration

Entry for June 08, 2005


Today is the day. All morning I’ve been singing the Beach Boys song “Good Vibrations” although these vibrations aren’t good.

Found the doctor’s office quite easily and the receptionist hands me the generic patient/doctor agreement form. I sign it almost without reading it. Show her my health card and she shows me to one of the small waiting rooms.

I wasn’t really expecting a lot with this first visit. I had my hopes of course but I went in thinking it was more of a formal greeting than an actual check up.

In comes the doctor and he introduces himself, shakes my hand and starts reading the patient form with my medical history. I told him I was looking for a family doctor because I was being bounced around by the walk in clinics. My symptom? Internal vibrations. I showed him the blood test results from the lab, showed him the high blood pressure medication and told him what the previous doctor had said.

He asked if they checked for Thyroid. I wasn’t sure so he suggested starting with a full physical.  I’m 34 years old and never had one so it seemed like a good idea. He said the test results look fine and didn’t think more testing was necessary.

He said that in most cases, internal vibrations were usually stress related. He knew my wife was pregnant so he mentioned about all of the big changes and the added stress a new child can bring.

Although I agreed, I told him I was not the type of person who worries about anything and that I don’t spend an extraordinary amount of time thinking about it.

Scheduled the physical for June 20th. What’s another two weeks of vibrating?
