I'm a little frustrated and frightened this morning. I ended up in the ER yesterday w/ complete right sided numbness (like I had a half body novacaine). After several blood tests which all came back negative, I am now being referred to a neurologist for possible MS diagnosis. I am being scheduled for a brain MRI this week. The numbness adds to several other symptoms that have been ongoing all of which has the doctor leaning towards this potential diagnosis.
Needless to say I'm frustrated and scared. I used to do home care w/ MS patients so I'm not immune to what this kind of diagnosis can bring. I do know that the medical community has come a long way in the 20 years since I've worked in the field; but, I'm still very scared of the possibility of this diagnosis. For now, I am trying to keep positive thoughts and try not to worry about the unknown. Funny how last week I decided it was time to step up and make some doctor appointments....didn't even get to go to my GP (she's on Friday morning) yet. LOL!
I was so excited that my Insanity workout arrived yesterday! I am going to do the Fit Test this evening for my Day 1 after I have DH help me with my measurements. This is going to be one kick butt program!
Happy July 1st SPfriends!
Keep on keepin' on!
