My family doctors appointment went great as usual. She checked my blood pressure again and it was 80/58… I know I’ve had lower, since the last time I went, it was 53/33, but isn’t that still considered low?? My piece of crap blood pressure monitor says something to the effect of, anything under 90/ something is on the low end, but my family doctor said that’s what hers was all the time LOL. But she wrote me out a note to send to disability about getting a new blood pressure monitor funded :). I need one that works! hehe.
So my Adrenal Fatigue test, cholesterol, B12, all the things I thought would be the reason for her calling me in, came back fine! Great.. but my blood work shows inflammation with arthritis.
She asked me where I hurt… I have Fibromyalgia so I had a long list to name out. She is sending me to get bone scans done to find out exactly where it is, and sent me a referral to a Rhuemetologist (sp?), so that will definitely be handy. Also doubled my fibro. nerve medication.
I was a little bummed about it yesterday when I got home, but my sister made a great point. It’s been around already for a while at least, now the doctors can name it and do something about it, but nothing changes for the bad based on knowing what it is now. I just hate, and I know anyone with more than one illness can relate, having one more thing to add to the list of things already wrong with our bodies. Yet I am glad to know, so maybe I can improve things 🙂
Next up is Monday, when I go to the Neurologist. Very interested to see what this guy has to say!
