    Next time, don't walk out until you DO feel better. Speak up to the doctor if the nurse doesn't listen.

    The doctor may not have meant the same thing as you do by "You are fine." She may have meant you did not have a heart attack or a stroke or anything like that. I don't know what she said or meant to say.

    Both the doctor and the nurse should have treated you with more respect and given you more information than you got.

    Take care, Annette
