I have an appointment with a new doctor in the

Patient

Q: I have an appointment with a new doctor in the morning and I'm really nervous. I have anxiety and I'm worried my new doctor will take me off of my medication if I can't explain my symptoms well enough. He denied my last refill because he had not seen me before. I am not very good at explaining my problems, but my anxiety has gotten worse over the last year to where I'm basically a shut in without the medication. Is it common for a doctor seeing a new patient to change, reduce or take the patient off of medications? How do I explain symptoms that are intangible like irrational fears. I think one of my biggest fears is having my doctor tell me everything is fine with me when I know it isn't. Any help you can give would be appreciated.
