I have been feeling very disturbed since I met my new physician last evening. I was there to just consult whether I had to continue my thyroid medication which I started a month ago. My TSH was 15 on August and after medication it was 7 yesterday. I mentioned about sudden palpitations which lasted for 3 days last month.
The physician told me that it might be due to stress about which I agree as well. The most important thing is when I asked him about if I need to concerned about my heart. He placed stethoscope on my upper left side few inches below clavicle, then placed stethoscope directly on both nipples of my breast one by one. This made me very very uncomfortable. I had visited cardiologist last month but the cardiologist never kept his stethoscope at my nipples.
I feel like I should report him. So, I want to know if it is necessary to keep stethoscope directly nipples of both breasts of a female.
Please let me know. I am unable to sleep as I felt abused.
