Ask for copies of all your records

Gary-you are entitled to copies of all tests, records, x-rays and the nerve conduction tests. I recently asked for copies of all my neurological records and received them promptly. Then I asked for copies of all my lab tests. My reasoning was because I saw that in less than a year my WBC count had dropped dramatically and so had the absolute neutrophils. They were very abnormal. I was sent to a hematologist-oncologist for further testing. Bottom line is I saw it but the Dr. had never caught it. As it turned out I was switched from Gabapentin to Lyrica and now the WBC’s are back to normal. I can stay on top of things if I have the records. I figure I am my own advocate.
