I went to the doctor this morning for a follow-up on my thyroid. He did a blood draw to check my levels. I still have been tired, so we talked about the sleep study I had done. He said I had mild sleep apnea. Even mild sleep apnea can cause tiredness which then causes hormones to be out of whack which then makes it hard to lose weight, which can help attribute to sleep apnea and so the vicious cycle. He gave me a couple options...CPAP or mouth appliance. I have to check my insurance and may need to wait until July 1st before I do anything because that is when our new insurance year starts.
Another thing I discussed with him...My right achilles tendon has been aching the last month or so, plus it has been a little swollen. He said I have calcified achilles tendonitis. He looked at my left foot too and it has a smaller calcification also. I need to rest, ice, do stretching exercises.
This is a little frustrating. He does want me to continue to exercise, but to be a little more careful. I will see my personal trainer tomorrow night and discuss it with him too - my doctor likes that I have a personal trainer.
