I hate Doctor visits...
Friday, February 26, 2010
I had a doctor's appointment this morning with my rheumatologist. He already diagnosed me with Fibromyalgia and Ehlers-Danlos syndrome (one of the effects of EDS can be found in my picture gallery i.e. the bendy joints) Now in addition to that I've developed premature osteoarthritis. At 18. For the pain caused by these three things he's started me on ANOTHER medicine. I have to stop the strength training so I don't know what I'll do there. He pressed on my joints to check on something or another so they're sore now.
I also have another physical therapy appointment. He's sent me to two other PT places and they had never heard of Ehlers-Danlos (not many people have) and so they had no idea what to do. This time he's sent me to the hospital itself instead of a clinic.
After the doctor's visit, mom and I went to Wal-Mart to pick up the prescription. I got a new wallet! It's so soft. ^-^ My old one was about to fall apart.
Anyways, five and a half hours away from home for the doctor's appointment, going to Wally world, and doing errands and such (actually just along for the ride) and when we got home I had to take a 2 hour nap and I was still tired when I was woken up for supper.
My dad is a truck driver and he's home right now. When he's in everybody tends to overeat. Like yesterday when he got home he brought home three pizzas, tortilla chips, salsa, and several liters of my Pepsi, which I haven't had in ages. I gained 5 pounds. Today he barbecued chicken, ribs, and sausages. I'm afraid to weigh in the morning.
