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!
