When was the last time you had a physical?

It's been a while for me, and I'm trying to get one done now because my anxiety has flared up again so I think a clean bill of health would help ease my mind a little. However I don't have a PCP so I'm calling around and it seems nobody does bloodwork anymore. I don't see the point of a physical without a full blood workup done.

  • That is really weird. I don't know why they wouldn't do bloodwork. I get blood work done when I go for my annual with my gyno. I haven't gotten a physical in a long time though.

  • I always have blood work done with my physical which I have every year.  The last one was in January.

  • I have been to a few different doctors in the last year (endocrinologist, GYN, kidney specialist, and dermatologist). I always go for a reason, not just for a checkup. I have had a lot of blood work done along with other testing.

  • Last July, then more blood work in November, December, and January after my second m/c. My gyno always does my physical.
