Well in such a good mood these past few days, will take it!!! I was on marks daily apple site and on their forum going to post about food and inflammation and a few questions when I read about a lady that had Miller Fisher variant of guillain barre syndrome. Now Caz not getting all worried just reading! LOL but the interesting thing is the pins and needles ect start at the extremities and go up and also can have a droppy eyelid which I do. hmmm just want to know things cos don't want to blindly follow drs and what they say. My dr is great but not into anything naturapathic, homeopathic ect. and seems to get very put out when asked about anything diff. so. just keeping my eyes open and able to ask questions.
Going to go get hubby up, he didn't get the grass mowed so will do it this am, after his 1 tv show. he has cut his watching by 90% but uses the puter oh well was doing both at once. lol
back later not much done yet, so far today pins and n. are minimal. cya!

yea yea I know Jude suck it up. I don't think anyone realizes how terrified I am of needles, more than anything, I would bungee jump rather than needles.
Anyway for some reason, this eve have been very calm, quiet, and reflective. Been deleting a lot of blogs, who needs them, mostly blah, down, or just a day comment. The ones I have kept are uplifting, or a change in something or a revelation. But 165 pages OMG. anyway getting there.
At this time I am not even thinking of my tests, or anything, more wanting to know. I have been on puter too long without moving and have had pins and needles in foot, feather/hair whatever feeling on my leg, and slightly on other leg and not sure but thought my R arm. argh now that is nerve wracking and a tad scarey. but will deal with whatever cos what other choice is there!
Okay it is 12:35 and I MUST get off here and rest.
HUGS good morning/eve whatever!

Okay with that till I read the muscle one has small disposable needles ( I DON'T CARE HOW FREAKING SMALL THEY CAN BE ACCUPUNCTURE SIZE).

OMG scared YEA.

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.

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)
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.
