Medical Update

Wednesday, March 27, 2013

I know that some of you want me to keep you updated about my health issues. I just went to the MD today for a TB shot and bloodwork. The bloodwork is for a "surgery" I'm having done to implant a chiip into my chest to try to see why I'm having those black-out/pass-out episodes that didn't occur while I was wearing the event monitor.

While I was at the MDs, I asked about my test results that they couldn't get to last week when I had my physical. It shows that my cholesterol is high. Not too bad, but over the range limit. It also showed that my ANA is bad and that I might have to see a rhematologist to see if I have arthritis. I'm only 38 - too young for that, I thought.

In a couple of weeks I'm having a horrible test done to try to find out why I'm still getting the heartburn and indigestion. They're going to take a thin tube that's going to stay down my throat and through my nose for 24 hours. I'm definitely not looking forward to that one. I just hope it helps to figure out why I'm still having this issue and none of the meds seem to work for very long, if at all.

Now that I have a job, it's going to be more difficult to schedule all of this in. I will find a way!

    Good luck with all the tests and procedures. Hope they figure it out soon. My first husband got arthritis at 19. It isn't just an old people's disease. I think there a couple of hundred different types too. Keep on keeping on.

    First off, congrats on your new job!

    Secondly, it sucks that you have to have all those tests done especially the 24-hour tube. Hopefully, it will bring about some answers though. emoticon

    I understand no one is too young for arthritis. I've heard of children and knew an 18 yr old with it. Hope things get better soon. emoticon
