How to be a [good] patient?

I wonder if everyone will be very nervous when seeing a doctor. I was so nervous that I didn’t know what to say to the doctor about what. I turned into a doctor’s question and I answered. Sometimes I forget to tell the doctor about some special circumstances.

Inquiry is an essential link when seeing a doctor. Only by asking can doctors have a general understanding of the patient’s situation, and then cooperate with examination and other means to make diagnosis and prescribe drugs.

Because doctors receive too many patients every day, they may not be able to inquire about their condition in detail. At this time, patients can take the initiative to inform them. It is very helpful to themselves and doctors.

What information can patients provide doctors to help diagnose?

1. Where is the discomfort? It started around what, the basic feeling of discomfort, etc.

For example, colds, fever, sneezing or nasal obstruction require different drugs for different symptoms. The more detailed you describe, the more doctors can prescribe the right medicine.

2. Have you seen a doctor recently due to illness and are using what drugs (including health care products)?

3, whether there is a family history of diseases, drug allergy history (including food), living habits (such as drinking).

4. What has occurred before, and is it finally improved or cured?

5. Whether it is necessary to drive or engage in mechanical operation and other work with concentration and sensitivity requirements during illness.

6. Women of the right age should be informed whether they are pregnant, when the last menstrual period ends, or whether they are nursing.

Before going to see a doctor, you may as well sort out these six problems a little, so that when you see a doctor, you can clearly explain your situation in an organized way, thus facilitating the doctor to quickly determine the disease condition.
