I hope that all that effort for the CT Scan and all the blood work at least tells them something so you can have answers.

This was yesterday afternoon.
It was with contrast dye given through an IV.
When asked by the woman if I ahve ever had this done before i was so sure i had. How wrong I was.

IV went in right arm around elbow area she drew blod nd tested it first for my kidney function to see how my kidneys are and that turned out ood/normal so she proceeded. I went in the donut tunnel knees up on a pillow and I was freezing when i entered the room at first because there was a/c on. she brought heated blankets to put around my shoulders and that was heaven like. I even got heated blankets put over my belly.
She explined how the contrast dye works that i will feel heat rush through my body. That was so need a heat wave from head to pee pee LOL it's like all that heat came out where i pee. "take a deep breath and hole, Breath!" I did as told. No more than 5 minutes but the prep took about 15 minutes.

We're waiting to hear from my Neurologist about the results of this test.

I cannot take any diabetes meds and i am drinking gallons and gallons of water. I ahve to stay near a toilet. This dye needs to be flushed out of my system. Then tomorrow morning i go to lab and have my blood spot checked for kidneys to see if it's safe to start back on my diabetes meds. Need I say my numbers are aobut 216 last couple days. I also will be drawn for A!C tomorrow and being checked for my potassium level because of these bloody leg cramps i have every night.

I am suddenly unable to sleep at night because of the muscle cramping. Leaving me in a crappy state during the day.

I will let you know what is going on.
