|Hey I need my land legs back!!!!!|
I went to the doctor Thursday and told him how fatigued I have been and he decided to do a more extensive thyroid blood test. I have all the symptoms of a thyroid problem but my blood work comes out normal. Go figure? I told the doctor that I had been having some dizzy problems but they had improved. Guess what? it is back. I am a dizzy red head. I have been sneezing a lot so I am thinking maybe this has caused some sinus issues, something is going on. Dr. Bret says he has had several patients with the same problem, and it could last longer than I want to think about. My daughter had the same problem a month or so ago and it seemed like it took for ever for her to get over it. Dr. Bret worked on my neck when I first started with this, and it seemed to really help. So guess where I will be going Monday, .........you guessed Bret I will be in to see you Monday.
I don't have much hope for Dr. Gorman to find out what is causing the fatigue as it is something that I have complained to doctors for a long time, and no one has come up with the answer yet. Somehow they kind of just ignore it, or they just don't want to admit they don't have a clue. Maybe they think it is all in my head? I don't think Diabetes could be the complete cause as I have friends with diabetes and they have a lot more energy than me. I am sleeping better with my sleep appliance, so I can rule not getting enough sleep out. I am even dreaming again, and they say this happens in REM sleep. Well we will see what the blood works says, A1C, and thyroid function. Also I will be having a thyroid scan as I do have cysts on my thyroid that I was supposed to keep track of. Oh yeah! the exercise thing came up and I am supposed to try Frank's stationary bike. I would really rather do the "dreadmill." I have to wait until the dizziness goes away or gets a little better before I try either. Good excuse!!!!
