  • Make the appt for him & drive his stubborn butt to the Dr. yourself! Tell him you love him & hate to see him suffer. Tell him you want him around long enough to grow old together! Whatever it takes, get him to the Dr. They have meds for migraines & chest pains are nothing to mess around with. If he refuses, tell him you will call 911 to report that your husb is having chest pains! That'll get him in the car! GL!

  • I remind DH that we depend on him to be healthy. If one of us gets sick, the other can't take care of everything. There have been times that's I've made appointments for him and took him.

  • Is he on any medication for his migraines? As for the chest pains, he should at least get them checked out. What if something is wrong with his heart? He doesn't care? Maybe he should do it for you and your children.

  • Call his doctor and set up an appointment. Also if you can ask for a phone consultation. And tell your dh what the doctor had said to you.
    Nagging a lot! Might work.
    I would call his best buddy to take him to the Dr's Office. I know he can say no to his best friend.

  • Wow...I'm way meaner. I tell him if he isn't going to do anything to help himself, then get up and get back to work or help with the kids. I sure don't get a free pass when I'm sick and I DO something about my illnesses.

  • Make the Doctor's appointment and take him. Although when my husband is really sick he is usually willing to go.
