Still wondering! LOL

Wednesday, July 27, 2011

Dr moved my legs, hips ankles in every way he could, some made my toes go to sleep some pain, some nothing. He got me to bend, twist, everything. Then after still not abble to give me a diagnosis and apologizing, he check my very sore very swollen knee. He said xray of knee and then maybe cortizone shot, OMG i would rather have surgery than a shot. at least then it feels better long term, cos I am so very scared of needles. He also said keep the apt on 24th aug. cos my ct scan is 18th so should have results. My hip xray showed no fracture, no arthritis a bit of degenerative stuff but that was expected. My barium swallow showed a small hiatus hernia but not bad, still stay on nexium. ( sigh). He put me off work till 1 sept or 15th depending. He also didn't fill out the form and said tell them i will get it done and if they give you grief say you are lucky I am seeing the same dr anad even have one! he gets very pissed when companies want things even before he sees the person then that very minute. LOL
So then we went to get a small bit of groceries and the pain omg from him moving my kee and pressing on it. WOOOOOWW hurt!
Dad came for supper, just left, so now will take my time tidying and get mur to help and then rest and read my library books.
Dr said be as active as you can without pain and otherwise we will try to figure it. I did say have had questions from people if is MS he responded very slowly.. hands on chin, he said you aren't presenting all MS symptoms and I still think it is a nerve... okay good to know.
So that\s all for now folks! still in dark and not any better.
off I go for now and be back tomorrow!! oh ate very well today and will again tomorrow.

Interesting info on loss of gallbladder

Saturday, July 16, 2011

Hi spark friends,
Got up and walked dog, then walked myself for 1 km in 12 mins. I was pleased with that even though wasn't as fast as yesterday eve, I had just gotten up and my knees were resistiing but I did it anyway. They weren't hurting that bad.
My dear sweet son, tries so hard to stay paleo and really believes in it. Hard for him working 2 jobs, a baby, new one on the way, but he does pretty well. He also acknowledges he feels so much better when he does. He has gotten his love of reading from me and sent me this note this am... ( yes I have had my gallbladder out, 1 month to the day after giving birth to him)

Hi Mom,

I finally started reading The Paleontology Solution by Robb Wolf and there is a passage I have to share with you.

Page 92 - Full of Bile
...When the intestinal wall is damaged, the chemical messanger CCK is not released. CCK usually sends the on switch to the gall bladder and the secretion of pancreatic digestive enzymes. When this signal is blocked, we do not properly digest our foods, particularly fat and protein. The lack of bile release allows cholesteral crystals to form in the gall bladder, which leads to gall stones. Gall stones are a symptom of a problem, an alarm. Instead of treating the cause (remove grains) we cut out the gall bladder. People who have had gall bladder removal are almost certainly undiagnosed celiacs and likely have a number of other progressive diseases. In my experience, these individuals are plagued with digestive problems, culminating in dysphagia, or difficulty swallowing.

Sounds kinda familiar to me, no?

Love you, Chris

Now interesting enough, I just had an upper gi done cos of dyspahgia.... that exact thing can't swallow BREAD ( my main issue on swallowing) Chris says HA your body saying don't eat that! LOL Also have read in my quest about gluten free that it will also make your body more arthritic. So what the ... am I waiting for. I didn't see much diff. but didn't do it full fledge and also was on lyrica when I did.
Wish I had remembered yesterday as the GF bakery was open. It isn't open sun or monday which are the 2 days we will be here. Don't think we want to go back to town today. But will start sorting my GF info.
My son also said to me the other day, mum wouldn't it be so nice to feel bettter, move better and only just not have to eat grains. There are so many other choices out there.

Chris Anna ( baby Eva! ) and Thomas

My babies, Lisa 30 Chris 32

    Great pictures, beautiful family!! Wonderful message from your son. It sounds so good. I had never thought of the gall bladder that way at all. Sure sounds interesting. My cousins friend with Celiac finds items at Bulk Barn for herself. I am not sure what kind but it has helped her with her eating whatever it s.
Great about your walking!! How is your pain??
Take care.hugs to you!!!

Totally soaked Tuesday

Tuesday, July 12, 2011

Pouring rain here.......... but oh well that's okay. Supposed to be nice after today for a while. A good friends mum passed away last eve, I was lucky enough to meet her last year and have a nice chat and sit on her deck with her, a special lady is now a special angel.
Today we are going to go get new glasses. Then groceries and I hope a visit to Thomas. I want to get Annas calendar and copy what he did when cos now that she is talking about a new baby book, it is making me actually start his! LOL I find it harder cos I have no hard copy pics of him, only on puter. But do have the book and know that once I get started it will go well.
Also have to stop at library and return some books.
Last night I had to take 2 morphine to get to bed, and then had hubby rub my foot. He rubbed the inner part of my foot and it immediately went to pins and needles and then I got a pain and a sharp zap in my hip. Directly to my hip... so much tell dr that cos was really noticeable, touch there and wow. Yea I know I am all connected but bypassed all my leg anyway took a while but then slept till 4. did sleep till 7 then got up.
Well going to go get ready for a visit, a girl I went to school with, her daugther needs to interview someone as part of her RN class so I said sure interview me lol
okay hope you all have a great day, enjoy the raindrops if it is raining, pretty sure we won't melt and if it is sunny put on the sunscreen and enjoy.

Yea yea I know it doesn't rhyme but my son and dil have found out that they are having a girl, Eva Maria and she was very photogenic. She showed her face, sucked her thumb, moved around. They looked for Thomas a month later and he was so squished in there, you couldn't see much, but so far so good. Anna I think was so shocked. Chris said ha..... I said that when you took the preg. test! LOL
So today we watched that on video as it was being done. Then I went to physio and then we went to dd for hubby to help with some stuff. Ate supper there, all healthy.
Down 2.5 lbs so very pleased. Has to be the better eating cos not moving much. After physio today, my back is so sore, and thigh and foot. I can't go until I get ahold of my insurance to fax me a paper so hubbys insurance can kick in. it will get done.
Anyway my foot is going to sleep, and then my hip is now sore, so going to walk aaround the house for a bit. talk to you all later. hugs all

OH Emotions

Monday, July 04, 2011

Well had a mini meltdown yesterday, tears, sad, frustration. Dh took it all in stride and we had a good talk. Don't think it really solved anything but did give us some options and some new thoughts.
Not sure what is up with me, but am feeling almost blue again today. I have only been up an hr, and could easily cry again. Nothing specific that either of us did or said, who knows. But am doing better even as I write. I will have a good day today. No tears and what ifs and I just want to know... lol doesn't tell me what if and what I want to know anyway.

Yesterday was my best day yet with less pain, and much less pins and needles and cramping. Is it the meds? only thing I have done differently. Mid -night last night, I woke screaming in pain +++++ pain it was my R knee ( non operated on ) which did like a week ago in the night. Feels as if someone is twisting my leg and knee stays there. I screamed hubby came and I wasn't able to move my leg then slowly could move leg but not knee. We put ice on it, it swelled and then after 30 mins or so I started falling asleep. Every time I moved even slightly I would wake but guess I slept okay woke at 7:30, late for me. So now, do I call back the specialist to make him aware and see what he says about that knee? argh
I am finding more small pains sthat I presume are arthritis, ie my thumb used to hurt, my shoulder, and my back. thinking that the arthritis meds may be keeping that at bay more, although they hurt periodically.

We go home this morning, was tomorrow am, but it is going to rain and we figured get home and then if dd needs hubby be good as she is off today. Supposed to get her new roof put on today, so wishing the heat and sun would have stayed one more day. maybe it will only drizzle. Can't complain about the weather lately was a super extra long weekend for us.

I saw on a new friends page a comment that made me think again......oh oh thinking that can often cause problems for me, ( ie the crying etc earlier! LOL)

Goes well with the comment : she turned her can'ts into cans and her dreams into plans

So I often think is that is what is wrong? I just choose not to.. mainly cos I am afraid. but then as dr phil. says "hows it working for you! " well this isn't working for me. But yet still worry that I will hurt myself worse. My bil says well you will only be off work longer get more summer off. well thanks sure, but sick adn tired of hurting. I have to try harder, get my head on better, whatever it takes just seems as if I don't know what it takes anymore. So often I feel beaten and not sure if things will change and I know that is cos I get hurt so often just as I start to feel better. So today will help get the stuff ready to take home, get home and do a load of laundry from trailer and go see dd. Then later go see Thomas. July 12 his mum finds out if he will have a brother or sister. Not sure he is going to like either right now LOL HA typical 2 year old by then, well almost lol

Sister in law that has done so well stopped at the trailer last eve with her hubby, and she said she had no clue what she would do with me, cos she feels she isn't trained enough to help me when I have so much pain. That's fine for now as she is never home and super busy. I will get to her when I get a bit better, and that is what is going to happen. I WILL GET BETTER and less pain.

Well there you are back in the loop about my trial with or without my pills and my pain stuff. I will continue for the week and then probably go back on and see what happens. Then I can tell the dr, at end month my observations.

So off to have my healthy breakfast and cup of green tea. Hope you all have a great day and enjoy the holiday my US friends. Everyone make good choices!

    Hugs to you. Sometimes tears make our guys really pay attention - which may be the silver lining. Had some tears with my guy yesterday too, but we worked it out quick.

Chronic pain can lower seratonin & trigger clinical depression. Just what you need, right? So here's a good article on how to raise your serotonin levels naturally.

And this one for foods that will raise your seratonin levels:

>Walnuts are supposed to be especially good.

I know it's hard for you right now, but you're doing the right thing by really investigating what's happening to your body & following all avenues to improve your health.

    Have you tried not resisting the tears? Just allow them, say it is OK if I feel sad right now. Oh there are those tears again. Give yourself a few min. and then go on.

Pain wears you down and does tend to cause depression or aggrevate it. Yes! tell your doc about the sharp pains and what you're trying with the meds. emoticon

    OK, I should have read this blog before I commented on your page, but rather than copy and paste it, go read it and come back...I'll wait.

emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

OK, you back? At least four times in your blog you said "I think....", but everything you are thinking about revolves around your pain. I'm in pain...have been cutting back on all meds, but right now I am thinking about you, and about typing this reply, and the pain has moved further back in my thoughts.

I assume you have already gotten another opinion from another doctor about the meds you are taking and that you have seen a pain management doctor. I don't know how it works in Canada, but I took those steps to be sure I had all my ducks in a row. I have now taken a very proactive approach to my pain management which includes less meds, yoga, doing walking and exercise dvds, and keeping my mind busy (refer to my note on your page). It's not an easy's hard...really hard, but life is so much harder when my main focus is my pain.

I'm sending you virtual hugs...I can tell you are having a rough time.

Maybe the tears are frustration? You've had a lot to contend with recently,.
