First appt I made was online for a physical exam since I had developed some symptoms of concern. She said "no physical" and told me to pick 3 things to discuss. I was scared because my heart was doing strange things, and I had become exhausted since my heart got crazy but I chose my swallowing problem because I did not want to choke, so my heart is still not beating right and I can't do much due to exhaustion. Does she hate old people? I am actually healthy for my age but want to keep it up.
