Your doctor will have questions for you, but you might also have questions for your doctor. Asking questions can help you better understand your condition and treatment. Here are just a few questions to consider…
  • Questions about your medical history – including any conditions you’ve been diagnosed with, any hospitalizations, troublesome symptoms; relevant medical history of parents, siblings.
  • Any medications you are currently taking – including over-the-counter medications, supplements, or herbal/natural remedies. It might be helpful to bring your medications with you to your appointment.
  • Any allergies you may have
  • A description of your symptoms in terms of location, intensity, and frequency
  • When your symptoms started
  • How long they typically last
  • The degree to which symptoms interfere with work, school or leisure activities
  • Anything that seems to trigger symptoms
