I had a bunch of bloodwork done because of my vertigo, and it included blood sugar and A1C.

I'm not sure if this makes any difference, but also, in the last few days, I have noticed palpable and audible clicking in my wrist, especially when I move my ring finger.

Re: Possibly gluten intolerant

It's interesting you say that because I've been anemic forever (since my early teens, and I'm now 22), and I recently (about 2 months ago) found out that I'm Vit D. deficient.

Re: Sprained my knee...

She said it's hard to tell because of my pain level and limited ROM, but it could be a meniscus tear or MCL tear. I have to use crutches and go back in a week.

True, but Flovent is one of the most expensive. (I checked online since I can price a medication with my insurance online).
