What is wrong with me?

Tuesday, May 18, 2010

I have not been feeling good for the past two days. Every time I'm sleeping my hands and arms go numb and it wakes me out of my sleep in the middle of the night. It's a feeling like when your foot falls asleep. This has been happening for a awhile now and for the past week the back of my neck has been bothering me. Just yesterday while reading my book on the bus on my way to work the words on the page looked blurry. When I got to work I felt dizzy and my head felt like it was in a dreamy state so I went to the nurse to have my blood pressure taken and it was fine. The nurse had me lay down for an hour and said maybe it can be fatigue. I know I don't get much sleep at night maybe five or six hours the most everyday. If it's stressed I don't feel it. I starting searching the web for these symptoms and found that some of my symptoms lead to strokes. OH GOD!! I have been healthy all of my life and every time I get a check up my results turn out fine. What is wrong with me? This is hard for me I can't get sick I have to be there for my family, who is going to be there for them if not ME!!. ok yeah I am one of those people that everyone depends on and everyone thinks I'm invincible. So now that's programmed in my head. I don't like to visit a doctor but I think I have to. I'm just praying that this is just a passing thing and it will go away.


I hope everyone is doing better than me right now enjoy your day.

    GO TO THE DOCTOR. No ifs, ands or buts. Because you care about your family, take care of yourself so you can be there with them.

    Everyone's advice is spot on. There is a reason for everything and it may be something simple or not. Regardless of the results you deserve to know what is "exactly" wrong. No home remedies or quick fixes. Do it the right way the first time. Take care of you first and then take care of the ones you love. You will be glad you did. Keep us posted.

    Go see a DR and find out what is wrong. It could just be something simple, but get checked out.

    God Bless

    If it were me...I would go to a Chiropractor on the way to the Dr. You never know, but maybe your neck or back are "out". Definitely go to the Dr. as well and get tested. I hope you get to the bottom of it soon, health problems are scary. Take Care...

    Your body is trying to tell you something. Don't ignore it! If you don't take care of yourself, no one else will.

    See your doctor pronto!

    Hey Monique, One thing I always tell my patients is that you have think positively until there is news worthy of stressing over. Don't think worse case scenario. I agree though that it it time to visit a doctor. Like the previous poster said it could be nothing but you have to find out for sure. If you don't take care of you then how can you take care of others?

    Best wishes

    Don't ignore those symptoms. It could be nothing, but not going to get yourself checked out (when you have access to medical care) is not wise. If you are the one that others depend on, how well will you do that if you are sick? Don't be afraid, take charge and go, just like you have done by taking the steps to lose weight. Keep stepping on the the doctor's office! emoticon

    If taking care of YOU is truly your number one priority then you have to go to the doctor and have some tests run to find out what is going could be something really simple or just your changing body (as much as that sucks cuz there is little that you can do about it).

    Best wishes to you and much success!
