Second opinion: You need a full interview and physical by an MD! Your weight loss triggers a lot of concerns for me especially if you weren't trying to lose weight. I have posted a link to an article that you can present to the clinic to impress upon them the need for an appointment. If they won't - get help somewhere else asap! https://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/ency/article/003107.htm
