Living life with multiple chronic illnesses…. and some other stuff!

Monthly Archives: November 2009

Doctors, doctors, and more doctors. This has been my life lately. Don’t get me wrong these have all, well mostly, beneficial. I’m starting to get down to the nitty gritty of things. I’m seeing an excellent neurologist who is sending me for some MRIs. He is screening for Chiari Malformation or any other cause for my symptoms. On top of dizziness, fatigue, palpitations, balance issues, etc. I’ve also developed some sort of movement disorder. It may just be muscle fatigue, but who knows. They other night my back spasms and it was so strong that my upper body jerked and I nearly hit my head on the wall behind me!

I’m also starting physical therapy, again, this time we are going to try aqua-therapy to see if that works. I sure hope so. I will also be getting evaluated for new braces and hopefully a new wheelchair.

That’s all I really have to update right now. I have been feeling pretty awful physically, which is affecting me mentally…. le sigh.
