All of this being said-it's just itime to go in and ask your friendly old GP what the problem is. When he has taken the required number of vials of blood and has had you cough your lunch out and looked in your ears and now your throat, you will feel better - and poorer for it! My heavens I sound like my mother! Now do it for all of us who also know that we should be doing this. 'K?
You are probably so right. Thank you so much for taking the time to just respond. I know that I over-react often and once I finally talk myself into going to the doctor to have it checked out I feel much better. Just today I was reading something in a magazine concerning Type 2 diabetes and many of the symptoms that I have apply to that as well and I do have a pre-diabetic condition. Anyway, it just hit me all of a sudden that maybe there was a problem. I have to go for a check-up in January so unless I decide to go in before I'll have everything checked out then. I just appreciate your remarks. Sometimes I just want to "talk" about what is going on and I feel better. For some reason turning 60 has brought on a LOT of things that I never expected.
