Dear Anon_28904,

This is something you need to discuss with your doctor(s). Your doctor has your history, can do an exam, look at tests and results, and give you his/her opinion.

If you are not comfortable with your current doctor, I suggest seeing another doctor for a second opinion.

Yours in health,
