Here's the deal...

November after my Diagnosis of the MG I started taking a Pill called pyridostigmine. It has helped my eyelids a lot so that my eyes open up.

I stopped taking my Ibuprofen because i wanted to see if this MG ll can help with other muscle problems I thought was arthritis in my neck. After not being on Ibuprofen for a month my neck pain came back. My general Dr. told me to restart the ibuprofen. So i did now the pain is still there. It bothers me even when walking. this pain has been with me approximately the last 10 years.

Meanwhile I have called the Neurologist and he has returned my calls and doesn't believe the neck pain has anything to do with the MG. He also doesn't think my high FBS #'s in the morning don't ahve anything to do with the MG pill.

the diagnosis I will admit has me kind of depressed because there are changes going on in my body that were not there before. I am less active than I was before but not an invalid. when one can't see well it's hard walking when i ahve to keep my chin up and head elevated. Try it sometime.

Ha! I'm happy I have this Team to whine to.)

Keep those kidneys going strong, you really gave them the workout this past week! Now you can get your sugar back down and try to get back on track with everything. I am still praying for your CT results.

It came yesterday afternoon. My kidneys are doing quite well. normal even. Remember that contrast dye can be dangerous on the Kidneys. I ahve had so much water this week it is simply ridiculous. It worked though. In flushing the dye out of my system and she gave me the go ahead to start back on my diabetes meds. (metformin and Glyburide)

Need I say my numbers ahve been high over 300. Normal is 80-120. I've been tired, thirsty. Not to mention the leg cramping in the calves. I get up seems hundreds of times a night to powder my nose and i julp milk. (milk raises bs) Not good. So I started back on my meds this morning and hopefully there will be relief soon.

I am still awaiting word on the CT Scan.
