Goin’ to the Garden to Eat Worms

Ok – bear with me … I’ll explain. First of all though – a quick update…besides feeling completely worn out from the never ending hamster wheel of doctors appointments and tests that lead no where and provide no answers, I had a HORRIBLE night last night. Excruciating gastro-pain. Not sure the trigger … could be…

Unsolved Mystery

Yeah – so this is going to be a totally up-beat post ………… NOT! So if you’re expecting perky and positive .. time to look for another blog! Fed up and tired of it all, don’t even feel like talking or posting about it, but here you go – today’s update after seeing the Internist…

Spa Day!

Today’s update ………… no update (not yet anyway) ………….. I’m off to the salon to pamper myself! I’m throwing caution to the wind … I’m having my hair colored (hoping it doesn’t stress my body out so much it throws me back in hospital or some damn thing), hair cut and a facial … not…

Failed the Poop Test… AGAIN!

Got the results back finally ……. as expected “no parasites seen”! Shocker! Called right away to get a follow up with the Internist (I wasn’t allowed to book an appointment until this week when the results were all in) … and was told he’s booking at the end of August. Uhhhhhhhh HELL NO!  I told…

The Waiting Game …

Just reporting that there’s nothing really new to report! Just playing the waiting game until the parasites test comes back … then I’ll be able to schedule an appointment with the Internist again to go over the results of all the tests … hoping it arrives soon! Quick update: Was a fairly busy weekend ……

Crabby

I should have posted yesterday after my appointment with the allergist but I was in a rush to get out to my relaxation appointment … ahhh massage! 🙂 So yes … yesterday’s allergist appointment was a colossal waste of time! …. as I figured it would be. First of all the doctor was old and…

“Lightning Round” Update

Just a REALLY quick update so everyone knows where things are at (especially since some of you are probably worrying after the chest pain)…. No bad chest pain the past couple of days – a little tight sometimes or the odd twinge, but nothing like it was when I freaked out about it in the…

Verrrrry Interesting!

So – my stellar researching sister came up with some very interesting information for me to read this morning that I thought I’d share / chronicle here for future reference. As always my chronicling of research can make for very long posts, so feel free to skim through or skip this post entirely (sorry folks…

Digging Deeper

Ok – I know I probably should have updated all of you yesterday so no one else had a heart attack (pun intended) … but there wasn’t much news to tell! So – my apologies, and without further adieu, here’s what you missed over the past couple of days: Friday I met with my GP…

A Visit to ER … Cuz I’ve Missed It So!

So – I wasn’t going to write this update until I had more information to tell you, but I figure I’d better for fear some of you learn of my latest ER visit elsewhere … and then I’d be in BIG trouble! I’ll try to keep this brief! Swelling in body was pretty bad yesterday…

Stumped!

Okay – here’s the latest update since my appointment with my Functional MD yesterday. (Sorry I’m late posting this – I’ve been back to researching stuff AGAIN – been at it since I woke up this morning). The basic consensus on my condition – Everyone is STUMPED! Why so stumped? Well here are a few…

Let Food Be Thy Medicine

I promised you all an update after yesterday’s Dr’s appointment .. so here’s the summary: Doc claims she DID prescribe me Synthroid the last time – NOT just generic or unspecified brand. Either way – I’ve been on Eltroxin for 2 months and suffering the swelling and extreme weakness in lower extremities … no idea…
