Look away if you are not interested, it’s nothing earth shattering.
GI Doc does not suspect H-Pylori, whew! Different stomach meds for 2 weeks and then they will do a test to completely rule it out. Then he has me on Omeprazole every day for the rest of my life. Ugh! But he did say that I can stop it to see if the issue is still there. He also said it could have been an ulcer. I am just happy I don’t need a scope.
Joints are still painful and my BP is still high. I am normally extremely low, extremely low. I am back to my Dr today to discuss the joints, and that the lump on my left ankle is now in a different spot? My ankles have been almost twice the size they normally are. Yuck! And that was using the cream they prescribed me. Fingers crossed I get an answer.
I am running hot one minute, freezing the next, not my usual body temp because I normally run hot all the time. With a steady dose of Acetaminophen I am not in as much discomfort, but my desire to do anything is nil. Especially if it means getting up and down a lot. But sitting still too long produces stiffness. I did get on the stationary bike, after 3 weeks of not using it. Too bad I could only ride a mile before I had to stop.
I try to remember that I am so blessed with all the wonderful things in my life, but I pray this is not a forever condition. I hate taking meds every day, my liver does not like it. Oh well, thanks for reading to the end, you deserve a medal!
No sewing or knitting yet, but I did wash the fabrics and will iron them before putting them away. Go me!
This is the floor of the restaurant on the pier, in Daytona, where we ate lunch. Yes, that is the ocean beneath the pier. You can feel a gentle swaying the entire time you are eating. Especially so this last time as the wind was so strong.
