I went to the doctor today.
I hate going to the doctor.
She couldn't believe that I lost that much weight and kept saying I had melted since she last saw me.
I went because i've been feeling unwell on and off for a while,but she said those symptoms were too vague.
She asked if I was doing a "crazy" diet and if I was eating low-carb.
I told her that I was on the ELMM diet.....Eat Less Move More!
She had a laugh over that.
She would like me to go see a dietician.....but I don't need to. I know I eat a balanced diet.
Said that my symptoms sounded like hypoglycimia(sorry,don't know how to spell it and its not on the spell check!).
No test for that,but she wants me to jog down my symptoms for a month.
When I told her I did zumba 3-4 times a week and went to the gym 3 times a week for strength training, she said she wasn't too worried about me being too sick.
I told her I was worried about diabetes,but my sugar was checked in October and it was fine, plus since I had lost 50 lbs,my risk really went down.
But she's going to check it anyways,for my peace of mind.
She scheduled a whole wack of blood test and i'm going back to see her in a month.
I feel like such a hypochondriac.
I've been having flu like symptoms the last few days........maybe I just caught a bug and i'm not dying of anything!
Maybe I just read too many books and my mind is just full of crap.
But at the same time, I do feel like crap and since I don't always feel like crap, I should know that i'm not feeling normal.
I went to see a naturopath last year,but some of the stuff she gave me made me feel worst so I'm not crazy about seeing her again.
I have to say that the iron pills she gave me are working because my iron hasn't been low since i've been taking them.
But then my doctor was questioning what iron pills I was taking,but I stopped taking them for a week and I still had the symptoms.
It's hard to know what is what and who to see for what.
There is just so much info out there and it's hard to make sense of it all.
I just want to feel well so I can Zumba and ,well, feel well.
Maybe I'm just crazy~
Well,gotta go cause i'll be late to my zumba class!
Have a nice day!
