I don’t know where to start so I guess the beginning is as good of a place as any. There have been some scary medical problems going on with me. Even with all of my years of nursing, I didn’t know what was wrong with me. And I only have a slight idea now of what’s in store for me, because of a recent doctors visit. But I’m not going to get ahead of myself until I see it in black and white.
Heres’ how it all started…
First of all, my vision did a loop-de-loop. I see double, lines look crossed, so much to the point that I’ve had to completely quit driving for the moment. I went to the eye doctor but they found nothing other than having to adjust my glasses prescription some. I got new glasses and that didn’t solve the problem.
Then came the dizziness and headaches. And I continue to feel fuzzy wuzzy like a bear. My head feels off if that makes sense? I have this constant feeling that my head is not my head. I’ve woken up in a fog and it never lifts. I’d love to know if anyone can relate to this feeling. Has this ever happened to you?
And then I started voiding every 15 to 30 minutes around the clock. Day and night. Frequent urination is putting it mildly. I’m talking so frequent I’ve just about moved into my bathroom, my trusty Kindle Fire in tow. But that’s not stopping the swelling that’s started. When I look down at my legs, ankles, and feet, I don’t even recognize them as mine.
And then, I found some lumps on my head. Which may or may not actually be lumps or even knots, I could just be a knothead ;). The lumps were the reason I called my physician who I’ve not seen in over 3 years when I had pneumonia. You see, I didn’t take my own advice. I’m always preaching to everyone to have a physical every year. But for me, because I’ve convinced myself that I think I know it all, I only go to see a physician when I seriously need to. In fact, if it was up to me, I’d use online doctors for everything. My thinking and reasoning are fixing to change, and I’ll get more into why in another post when I know for sure what is wrong with me.
After convincing myself that I wasn’t qualified to treat myself, I called and made an appointment at my doctor’s office. And right away they told me something alarming that was wrong with me, that may or may not be the cause of all of my symptoms. We are hoping it is, which is crazy because this isn’t a little thing, but the alternative is so much worse, so prayers from my prayer warriors would be appreciated. I had to go back the next day for fasting blood tests. And now, I have 2 doctors appointments next week and a couple of tests scheduled at the hospital which are unrelated but still, need to be checked.
When I know more, I’ll let you all know. For now, I’m just curious if any of you have ever experienced anything like this before?
