Well, I saw my nuerologist today. We are increasing my mestinon. And he suggested I lose some weight. He thinks maybe my persisting fatigue is due to some sleep apnea issues. I told him I've started a diet a week ago and have lost about 1 lb. I see him again in April and he asked how much weight I plan to lose by then. I told him 1 lb a week, so about 16 lbs. He made a note of it in his chart. Now I am really accountable! I also am going to see a neuromuscular specialist for a second opinion. If that dr agrees with the myasthenia diagnosis, then I will be started on prednisone. I also have the green light to exercise-IN MODERATION!!! I'll have to keep my work hours to a bear minimum, or else I won't have the energy to exercise too. I sent in the paperwork for my disability case, but that will take monthes to get figured out. So in the meantime I wait.
