Re: Okay Everyone -- I Need to Ask a Question
Hey Mark --
Thanks for replying. What you say makes sense. And this could very well just be the natural progression of the MD.
Typically, I see my regular physician anywhere from 2-4 times a year and my MD doc once a year. I have so many issues (blood pressure, cholesterol, acid reflux, borderline diabetes) so I see my regular doctor regulary for monitoring on those things.
It just seems that in the last 6-12 months, I have felt so much more weak and tired. It wasn't good before, but now it just seems so bad. And I just don't know if it's to be expected OR if something else is going on in conjunction with the MD.
I called my neurologist today and I have an appointment to see him on April 21. Based on what I told his assistant, she felt that he needed to examine me and evaluate my increased problems to see if we need to look a little further into what's happening.
I was putting off doing it because last year was such a bad year for me. I had that gallbladder problem and emergency surgery, got the flu while recovering from that, then got pneumonia over the summer, then had to have surgery in December for female issues. I feel like I've been through the ringer as it is, but I feel just so weak and tired.
I finally broke down about a month ago and bought a power lift chair. Only chair/sofa in the house I can out of. I'm glad I have it, but it's a classic example of how things have progressed.
Oh well, at least I took a step in the right direction and called my MD doc.
