I'm kinda anxious to go to my appt because although I think my dr knows what he is doing and I have faith in his diagnosis I think maybe he is treating the wrong problem...or maybe should be treating both???
He had me on celebrex for my AS and I loved it then I started feeling sick on it and he took me off of it. I can't take it because it hurts my stomach....yes I take prescription stomach meds with it....still hurts.
I also have fibro and he's not treating it. I hurt all. The. Time. Every. Where.
Seriously....my nails hurt, I ache alllllll over. That sounds like fibro....right? I know my hips and legs and shoulders are most likely the AS but all the other!? I don't think so.
Strokes you ask?
Yesterday my MIL had a stroke. They "think" it was a TIA which is light but it has affected her left arm and leg. She's in the hospital and we were there til midnight last night. After the drive home and winding down it was probably 130 or closer to two AM before we actually settled down. Then Britt had to be at work at 7 so I was up early. Him having to be there means leaving house at 6. We live in the boondocks. He's on the couch snoring right now and its all I can do to stay awake but I know if I don't stay up I will be in bed to long and pay tomorrow. *boohoo
After we get to hospital with MIL (ambulance drove slooowwww) we stay in ER about 6 hrs before they get her a room. We find out this AM she had a heart attack while in ER.....this is found from test results.
Huh!??? How did they not know? How did WE not know? One of uswas with her at all times. Her BP did go up. 203 over 97 at one point. She was saying her chest was tight. Dr comes in and says its normal for a stroke victims pressure to go high, its apparently the body trying to naturally heal. Oookk. Maybe that's true. But was she having this heart attack while we sat in front of her discussing her bp?? She's a tiny lady and needed a stint like 5 yrs ago but her veins are so small they couldn't do the stint.
That's not all though!
Tuesday my mama has surgery. I won't go into detail but I do ask for prayers for both our mamas. We want them home and pain free please.
I think I'm gonna find something to do ....or go to bed.
