Caroline the other thing that impacts my sleeping - lack of hormones. I will not take a supplement as I was on them for a few years but had chest discomfort. They increase the risk for breast cancer,ect.
I hope you feel better!
It is good to read that so many of you are doing well.
I had a bad bout last week - for two days I just felt ill. I could not get on top of being tired - but again like Caroline - I had a stressful week! I slept when I needed to - even if it was during the day. I just could not function.
Keep loving those kidneys team.
An update too on my doctor situation - I am looking for a NEW doc again - this one will not let me see my neph. and thinks that I do not have kidney disease... even though my creatinine numbers have increased - from .08 to .10.
He will not test my kidney function every three months and I have thyroid disease - my thyroid is LOW and my blood pressure is LOW and he said - UP your meds two days a month and I will see you in 6 months! UMMM NO - my blood work needs to be done in 6 weeks when you change my meds.
I am fighting the good fight and finding a new doc. My third in a year - atleast my original doc did my blood work and was doing a good job of trying to stay on top of my health issues - this guy wont even try to stay on top of it all.
My name is Jean, I am 50 yrs old, live in Michigan with my hubby, my rottie and my cat... have 4 adult kids and 6 grandchildren -
