I missed the call back yesterday as I was at physical therapy when the secretary called me and by the time I was done with PT the neurology office was closed. So I am hanging around waiting for the phone to ring... had a couple of questio... Read more

So it's after midnight and I need to get to bed soon. Managed to drive and go shopping and out to lunch with a friend today. Splurged on some Bose headphones so I won't have to hear the blaring t.v. noise when trying to work on computer. Fidd... Read more

I am barely able to see to type this blog this a.m. I checked out fine at the internist and apparently I have no ear infection or sinus infection (which would be an easy fix). The neurologist prescribed 2 new pills. A muscle relaxant I ta... Read more

Multiple aches...possibly getting flare up of fibromyalgia.... I tried an Imitrex 2 hours ago and I have not noticed much improvement in the head pains. So I am doubting the headache part of this is caused by migraine..... I have another c... Read more

I had to go back to the dentist and get a filling on a crowned tooth (as a temporary fix). Dentist actually talked about replacing the whole bridge which I strongly objected to. Hopefully this bridge will hold up for another year or so. ... Read more

My daughter calls my dentist, "The Salesman of Crowns." I do believe if he says I need a crown today it will be my last visit with him. I am going in for a routine cleaning and exam. A year ago I lost two front teeth to an long standing (... Read more
Odd schedule...up later and sleeping later....

Since I don't have to go to work for awhile (on medical leave) I have changed my usual habit of going to bed early and getting up at 5:00. The past week or so I have started staying up until midnight or so and sleeping in to 8:00 or even 9:00 i... Read more

Not a lot of change in symptoms, though I am feeling less anxious since I heard of negative results from echocardiogram, MRI, MRA and one blood test. There is only one unreported blood test pending. In general, I am feeling a bit worn out ... Read more

I was able to read the road signs yesterday afternoon, but have not been out yet. I am noticing difficulty focusing on the computer and probably won't be on much until later in the day and hope the blurriness improves after I am up awhile. ... Read more

I did talk to my internist today who said she looked at the echo report and said my leg swelling is NOT related to cardiac dysfunction and things look good. Nothing worrisome there. I did not talk to the neurologist but told his nurse my h... Read more

My daughter said if I had something serious they probably would let me know the results right away. I guess I agree...but would still like to know if anything showed up. Perhaps the doctor is waiting for the last blood test to come bac... Read more
