Day #307 - uggg if it's not one thing it's another

Tuesday, April 30, 2013

Workout yesterday was good - an hour total 30 elliptical and 30 treadmill with inclines

So I went to the doctor this morning for this continous discomfort in my side/back that I've had since January. Of course back in January I did an MRI and nothing was found - I am thankful for that. But I still have the pain. I've experienced some dizziness when I lay down and get up from a lying position so I'm thinking my blood count must be low again. It was good in January and in March so.... he drew blood to see. I gained 10#s since last week emoticon well I've been without my water pill for a few days and my blood pressure was elevated as well because of that. But he reviewed my last blood work from January and he sees my cholesterol is high so he writes me a prescription along with a lecture and my blood sugar is right at the top of being borderline diabetic emoticon emoticon. But he didn't write me a prescription for that because he wants to see what's going on with me and when I take the prescription for the cholesterol I guess it elevates liver enzymes so I'm like REALLY!!! Come on....he's asking me if I ever had problems with my cholesterol - NOPE!!!

So instead of a 3 months visit I got to go back in a month to check my liver enzymes. You know if it ain't one thing it's something else but WHY DOES MY BACK/SIDE hurt so much when I lay down or move the wrong way!!!!! That's why I went not for all this bad news ... or was it? emoticon Hey you can't fix something if you don't somethings wrong with it and I'm a true believer in prevention and intervention. So now its really time to start working on my diet before I'm really diagnosed as a diabetic - that has always been my worst nightmare. But this is the damage I did to my body and now I got to undo and make some mental changes to go along with all this exercising.

Okay I've released my ugliness and now I can go to work. It's about to storm here so I know today I'll just want to go to sleep because it'll be freezing in this office soon. Well peeps have an awesome day!!

    Oh my goodness! I hate to hear that you are in pain. That's so frustrating to go for one thing and they tell you another. That's my fear too. My doctor always tell me that my bloodwork is good, but I must lose weight so that I don't become diabetic. It's crazy that we bring a lot of these issues on ourselves. But, we can change our bad habits TODAY. I pray that the doctor figures out what that pain is. I'm sure that's very scary. You have reminded me that I must change my eating habits ASAP!!! Try not to let this get you down. Everything is gonna be ok. Keep us posted.
