Sunny day and only back pain right now

Thursday, May 02, 2013

Well back from walk, was rather chilly this am, but had my fleece jacket on not winter so that is a plus! Lol
Allie makes me laugh so many times when we go for walks, like watching a toddler find new things. yesterday someone somehow had this huge tractor tire down by the track.. well she looked stood right there, barked, backed up barked, I said allie its fine and walked towards it, she slowly got near then down in play mode front down back up - went to it barked, sniffed and on we went. Well this morning, the tire is gone, but a very large chunk of ice has rolled down the hill ( the rink is in the building and the zamobni dumps the stuff off the rink there) well she did the same was very unsure what to do. but so content to check it all out, sometimes looking at me as if is this really safe? lol also met a man on a bike but she has seen a few of these now so was fine. Good walk, sore back but not enough to hamper the walk or length of it - over 1.3 miles.
So today may go over to Thomas and Eva's to give some suff to Anna that dad has given me and cleaning my kitchen out. Haven't seen them in while, he has had a bad cold and hope that Eva doesn't have it now.
Also going to make another batch of the banana muffins I made, they are great, so want to make another batch to freeze adn bring to trailer. Then will do english muffins, dd said they turned out great and super as hamburger buns.
NOt much more yet but then it is only 8:27. lol oh oh yea have to take that paper work backt o the drs office - going to write a note too as some areas I checked cos yes it happened this past week but is not very often and a few os the other symptoms I ticked but not always either.
Okay puter off, kitchen I go! in half hour can have some breakfast! ( pill that has to be away from meals ) oh yea have to email naturopath! lol
cya HUGS

    I love puppies. They are so fun to be around.

I finally broke down and tried some gluten free bread as my friend was driving me crazy about it. Now I have an expensive brick that tastes like wall paper paste. emoticon

WOW Wednesday

Wednesday, May 01, 2013

Been busy walking allie, and sorting the kitchen. I need another pantry, don't have room as I used to store extras of food and paper stuff etc down stairs and now dad is down there. argh not enough room in my small pantry.but got it sorted, went to bulk barn got a few diff flours etc. and am going to make 2 diff recipes and see.

Went to the dr. well had to wait nearly 1/2 hr then he got in and sat and said whew... sorry should have seen you while ago, then looked at his puter said OHMAN. she was supposed to book you for half hr I said do you have someone behind me, yes. I said if you want do that person so you can have time with me I don't mind waiting. NOpe you waited long enough, not your fault. Good cos that was half hr allready. lol

So he started with touching me with kkleenex to see if I could feel it, then a tongue depressor broken in 2. sharp, dull. did good on that. then went and got his tuning wand, hit it and stuck the wand part on various areas do you feel the ringing. yes. all of them were fine felt everything how I should. He did a lot of eye stuff and coordination too. got me to close my eyes and lifted parts of my body and he would let them drop. All seemed fine other than my balance etc. He said lets put that MS baby to bed. I am so sure you don't have MS. Okay great!

I did mention about falling over just standing still and how like just before I left the house, Mur wanted me to stand on the tape measure and I had to lift my foot with my pant leg to get it to go up. He hasn't a clue as to that yet.
Then he said lay down and close your eyes I am going to press spots. okay. well he started at the ankles so so, calves, soos. inner left knee I YELLED and almost got off the table OMG PAIN, inner R knee not quite as bad but hurt. Thighs yea that hurt. wrists so so a bit sore, L elbow OMG not as bad as knee but yeaaaaa. R so so, went to back of neck, no no, little lower yes that hurt a bit both sides, then to the front neck area not too bad, then lower above breasts but on the bone and yea yea that hurt. So by then I knew he was checking for fibromylagia. I honestly didnt think I had that even though some of the sx, but a lot are above the waist and most of my pain is lower untill he pressed. I said OMG how hard are you pressing cos I dont usually hurt in most of those spots. He said pressure with thumb till it gets white on his thumb. but he pressed his leg and knee an dsaid that doesnt hurt. HA
So gave me paperwork to fill out, where in the past week have I had pain and has a list of 19 spots I have had pain in 10 but allmost all lower other than my elbows. then hvae to fill in the past week on fatigue, waking unrefreshed, and cognitive sx. then below circle what I have had out of this list. 40 things have 12. so will see.
I was surprised really when he pushed me in so many places that hurt. Man some really hurt I guess when I was doing the tests on line I wasnt pressing hard enough. But then I dont have the upper pain at all really on a daily basis.
So take the papers back to him tomorrow, and then he will call me for another apointment. I hope he can figure what it is with the not being able to pick up my feet. LOL when I typed that I thought omg mum used to always say pick up your feet girl! lol
Hubby got part of the driveway dug up, and now is bbqing. I will get into the kitchen and get the rest of supper ready.

    I'm glad they've discounted MS Cinders, that must be such a relief! So pleased to hear it!!!!!

Hope they get to the bottom of it, it sounds like they're trying everything they can.

More gardening today, the last leg! Hope to get it all done bar the patio and pond by 5pm as I'm off out to the monthly Quiz Night with the girls from the charity shop tonight ...and a pre quiz meal at the pub! (hope you don't mind I'll blog this last paragraph?!)

    Are you taking cholesterol medication? If so, check the list of side effects to your muscles.

The pains and the difficulty lifting your leg might not be related. Then again they might be.

Sounds like he's being thorough with his history taking, and his examination. Hope you get an answer.

Terrific Tuesday

Tuesday, April 30, 2013

Well this am got up and had a lot of pain in my L foot, some in my back. Knee was fine. Took Allie walking and such and then after a bit did my physio exercises, I MUST remind myself that I feel so much better when I do them consistently 2x day. Then we went grocery shopping and I felt good able to walk but still some residual foot pain, but hey said to hubby, last year I wasn't even able to walk in this store, I cried even going down half an aisle.

So this eve, going to sort the pantry as got some other stuff to put away and need to find room. Then have some library magazines and may sauna and bath, not sure. But know there are still 2 walks and physio exercises in my evening yet. lol

so all in all a good day, some pain yes, but that's okay it was less than usual. Nice time with hubby too. OH got a call that the beads for my bracelet are 50% off at one of the jewelery stores so we went and he got me two. One is a small tea pot as we have a long lasting thing about tea nad how he learned to drink it when he was away for 6 months so we could sit and have tea together, and it is the only hot thing I drink besides the odd hot chocolate ( well before sugar free lol). and also a pink with goldy/brown in the insides think it is a glass one. They are for mothers day which amazed me as usual, you are not my mother, the kids will get you something. then I had a hard time deciding between this pink one and a blue one. only one blue one left so he texted dd and asked her was she going to get one, cos she usually does get that for me, and said yes so he went back and got that! Spoiled I was today!

And he walked by while ago and stopped and gave me a neck rub. ahhhh I could have massage every day love it.

Well best go and move a bit this was long enough to sit still. cya

    Awwww you deserve to be spoiled!!!!! I'm glad you had a nice day with the hubby and got some beautiful memory beads for your bracelet. That's a great way to think of being in that store yes you were in pain but were able to walk the store , not like this time last year when you were crying to go up half an aisle.
It sucks to be in pain, but sometimes we have to think of those little positives and I'm glad you did! Enjoy the rest of your evening! emoticon

Monday evening

Monday, April 29, 2013

Good evening all, well just after suppertime.
Had a good day, went to massage today and so far it went well. I hope it continues, only a touch of pain in my back right now.
Hubby sorted a bit in the shed, and dad got his boxes and sat on the deck and sorted through some of it. Tossed some not lots. lol
Dr called, I have an apt. wed. afternoon. Surprised me as figured it would be awhile as only saw him last week. He had said he would do a full neruological testing. Then long term called and said she was going to fax dr and get an updated evaluation from him since I had seen him 3 times since they had gotten anything. Fine. so figure if he does this and then does the stuff for them, it will all be up and current.
Hubby has plans to start on the driveway and side walkway this week. I hope the weather holds so he can do it, we haven't the money to do the driveway rightt away so he is going to use some of the gravel etc. and small concrete to fill the part of the driveway that we have made mud from driving there so dad has more room. Hopefully later in the summer we can get it paved only have to do that part as rest is done. He has to jackhammer the side up as it is steps and none are the right drop and very unsafe for anyone let alone dad. So that too will be done then a rail has to be put in on one side.
May 20th area he is going to do dd bathroom ( only nearly a year late birthday present! Sigh). Then after I sure hope our deck stairs get started. Then it will be the main floor bath which doesnt bother me right now. As long as it is done by surgery.
I looked back at when I went to the knee spec. as we were tryign to figure a year and a half. I went dec. 4th lol seems longer than that we were thinking it was yet I was sure it was late spring so yea. time and hope that all this physio I am learning will help me continue at home. Still freak out about it but hey not worrying as long time yet.
Well have some library magazines I should look at as want to return it all tomorrow.
For now, going to walk around house for bit as just got a sharp pain in back/butt - it left but still.
Hope you all have a great evening. Maybe hubby will even walk with Allie and I later. not holding my breath.
Cya hugs

    Your hubby sounds as busy as mine hahahaha Hubby just planted some sun patients today for me and tidied up the front a little bit, his friend came over to return the lawn mower so he figured after he left he'd plant for me. I hope you had an enjoyable walk and got to enjoy nature! emoticon emoticon

Still chilly Saturday

Saturday, April 27, 2013

Was supposed to get to 11 today, well nope it was still chilly and people at the campground fixing up their trailers and area were in hoodies and gloves. brrr. tomorrow now they say, let's hope so.

So that is what we did today, stopped at the rv store, to pick up a lock that wasn't with our king pin thing that we bought. Then to the trailer and back. was a good day other than being so cold.

Now cos I am so hungry and have no clue what to eat, I will go get in the suana, had a huge salad and steak for supper, 2 rice cakes with a bit of jam ( no sugar) after supper, 1/3 cup of nuts so no need to be hungry....

cya tomorrow.
