Just an update for those who care...

Posted 05-23-2014 at 08:31 PM by k742

So, for those keeping track of my medical saga...here's an update. Chiropractor has been helping with my back and hip pain; Wednesday I go in for my evaluation.

Yesterday we finally got to meet with the NaPro doc - that was pretty great, actually. He took a thorough history of what's been going on, did a quick pelvic exam to make sure nothing obvious was going on...based on my issues he thinks it could be progesterone deficiency, PCOS, endometriosis, or any combination of those things....

Right so, I'm already filled with regret. The above sounds petulant and elitist. Let me re-phrase:...

I never knew pain like this existed. I mean, I know people suffer from pain, but this is new for me.

The first time I experienced this type of pain was…gosh…over 6 or 7 years ago. I was having horrible sharp stabbing pains in my lower right abdomen all the way down through my inner thigh. It would start as a dull ache, then progress into the stabby pain. It would make me nauseated and I’d eventually throw up a couple times. We were on our way to photograph a high school senior when...

Excitement and fear, all at once.

Posted 04-10-2014 at 03:40 PM by k742

My lovely new doctor prescribed some meds for the pain I’ve been dealing with more frequently. I’m equal parts excited and terrified at the thought of pain meds. Any others have this fear?

I’ve already told myself to save the Vicodin for emergencies only - the other he gave me was ketorolac (Toradol)…this one comes with some potentially nasty side effects, but I think I’ll be OK (good thing I bought the whole milk this time instead of the low-fat junk!). I’ve also made a deal with...

Teaching kids how to have good oral hygiene is important to boost your child's dental health. Issues like cavities, gingivitis and tooth decay are just a few of the results of poor oral hygiene. Good habits should start from the time...
