Hellos, I'm Dave. Texan who loves everything.
Here you will find Supernatural, Pokemon, Disney, Animals, Video Games, Actors I'm in love with, and then just whatever else strikes my fancy.
This is not a Glee blog despite my side bar image. I don't watch the show anymore. But I still enjoy the actors and characters, so I reblog things from time to time.
I'm a crazy multi-shipper~
|Do you have some form of anemia? When I was anemic I had vision blackouts fairly frequently until my iron levels started going up.|
I’ve been told multiple times from different doctors that my red blood cells are small in diameter. Some doctors ignore this completely and just say my blood count is fine so it’s fine, others say it makes me borderline anemic because my blood count is normal for a normal person but not for someone with small red blood cells.
But no one’s ever followed up on that. It’s actually something I was gonna ask my rheumatologist about at the end of the month. I’ll ask if that could be the cause too.
THE PROBLEM, I got put on iron supplements once before and I had too much iron very quickly. And my doctor didn’t even attempt to adjust the dose he was like, well obviously you don’t need it. (He was a moron though, I don’t see him anymore for anything) So I dunno?
The scariest thing is any time my vision goes black. Even if it’s just for a SECOND (Which it always is, I think the longest it’s happened is a full second so never a long time). My vision is always messing up and doing weird shit, but when it goes dark, it makes me just stop.
Losing my eyesight completely is such a big fear of mine. I keep being told my eyes are healthy and according to my MRI’s there’s nothing no my brain. What’s making these things happen then?
Someday. Someone will tell me.
My mom said I complain/talk about being sick too much and she’s tired of hearing about it. “There’s something wrong with you EVERY day.” Was also said. Even though I keep a lot to myself cause who wants to hear “how’re you?” “Miserable”
But ok. I guess I’ll keep everything to myself. “I know you’re going through a lot but I’m busy.” About sums up her feelings in the matter
Not like I’m her daughter or anything
I thought this was “just” vertigo even though there’s no real dizziness or spinning involved I was getting a dropping sensation pretty hard since about. . Oh. 6? I’ve been trying to sleep and played pokemon and mario kart to distract myself just laying in bed but any kind of movement sets it off
it’s turned into zaps. It’s on the edge of painful. It’s a quick jolt and the feeling of being pulled down and it makes me feel nauseated. I dunno what’s going on. None of my medications have changed. (and I’m only on three) so I dunno what the hell is setting this off. I’ve had this sensation before and it’s been annoying but usually it goes away. This is not. And I’ve never had it turn into outright zaps.
I don’t see the rheumatologist till the 25th aaaaaaaaaaauuuuughhhfb
ALRIGHT They are telling me that if I have POTS (that’s why it’s on my Diagnosis list) I have a mild form of it cause my results from the autonomic text were “very mild to normal range” EXCEPT the sweat test. That was abnormal but in no distinct pattern so of course my doctor is trying to figure out a way to explain it that makes no sense (ie blaming medication I didn’t take for days before the test SO it wouldn’t interfere with the test) I have had problems with losing feeling and loss of sensation in my leg. This kind of proves things doesn’t it? Cause I didn’t sweat on random spots on my leg. Can we look into that?
I’ll tell the rheumy I guess.
The second neuro agrees I have Central Pain Syndrome so there’s that. Problem there, it’s still a diagnosis with no test behind it, which I don’t have an issue with as long as it’s treated right, but my fucking PARENTS. They NEED a name and a solid TEST cause, even yesterday mom was like “They probably only put those things on there for billing purposes” ???? ok
I dunno. I want relief. and answers.
I’m doing a blood test called a mediator release test which will test how various foods cause inflammation in MY blood and I can change my diet and see if it helps at all.
Watch it not. The doctor who is ordering the test (Dermatologist) is so gung ho (CAUSE SHE READ A BOOK ABOUT CLEAN EATING WOW which I have no problem with clean eating or any of that but it’s just when people read one book or see a documentary then suddenly they’re an expert on something) but I believe this test has something behind it, I looked it up, it won’t hurt to do it, and I can know what foods to stay away from. Don’t expect me to do any clean eating diets though :| I’ve tried that before (ordered by my GASTRO). I was still in pain and vomited all the time, but u tried
Okay. No one has called me (shocker) but on my chart from the med school after I had the testing two weeks ago it says this
and on a separate note (from the autonomic neuro doctor) it says “Dizziness and giddiness” and “Exercise intolerance” and POTS again
I sent my neurologists office a message saying no one has contacted me about any of this so we’ll see.
All these syndromes WHAT IS THE CAUSE
I am so done.
I’m so fucking done
edit: The mole on my leg is pre-cancerous. Meaning I gotta have surgery again. On the 21st. Cause chances are all the surrounding skin and tissue is also pre-cancerous
The one on my breast and shoulder are nothing. I guess I have that.
I’m just so tired of, every time I have something taken off they call me and tell me cancer and that I have to have some form of surgery.
I have so many fucking moles. And they’re ALL starting to change. One day they’re gonna miss one for whatever reason and then I’ll be fucked. How long can I keep going like this before that happens?
Kind of what I tell myself every morning when my alarm goes off.
Take warm bath. Get out, get dressed. Legs and face go completely red, feel blazing hot. Have fever. Start vomiting.
Now I’m laying in bed and I refuse to move for the rest of ever
And now I’m cold
Here’s an optimistic thought: You’re not chronically ill, you’re medically interesting.
[Image: 6-piece blue colored background with a Siamese cat.Text reads: “Use up most of your spoons on coping mechanisms”]My whole life right now.
My breast sonogram (didn’t do a mammogram cause of my age) came back negative
Though, I still have that little lump/knot/bump. The doctor at the place even came in and was able to feel it and he was like ??? ???????? ? cause it didn’t show up at all on the sonogram. But like I’d said, it’s under a red spot. So he think it’s skin related, and I already had a dermatologist appointment scheduled (since I have to go every three months anyway) and that’s on Monday, so
No boob problems
I mean my breasts are still red and inflamed and one hurts but there’s no deep tissue issues so THAT’S THE POINT
Let’s start prescribing healthier habits rather than prescription pills!!!
CAN NOT ADVOCATE THIS ENOUGH people rely on drugs to solve their problems, if you have a minor headache it’s probably because you’re dehydrated or you need rest or food, don’t rely on painkillers so much to solve your problems!!
Man, next time I dislocate my hip due to my horrifically painful genetic condition I’ll be sure to just eat a few radishes and drink some more water. Why’d no one tell me how easy it is to deal with chronic pain?! Guess I’ll throw out my heart meds while I’m at it!
Oh wow, I didn’t realise that if I ate some lettuce I’d grow some new lungs, or my legs would start to work again! Wow, now I have this info, I’ll just stop sleeping with my CPAP coz that lettuce and carrots will stop me from suffocating!
