I am a mess!

I actually got to see my neurologist yesterday. I've developed a tremor in my right hand, which the docs seem to think was brought on by an anti-depressant, so I got a quick referral to the neurologist. He said for now it's a tremor of unknown origin and I have to get a MRI. Also, I got to talk to him about my migraines. He is referring me to the headache pain clinic within the hospital, and he wants me to try Lyrica. I haven't had any luck with anti-consultants so far, so I'm not holding up much hope that this will work. But I figure it's worth a try.

Plus, my GI had mentioned the same drug for my gastroparesis pain. I had a CAT scan for my gastroparesis, and that got me another endoscopy appointment in a few weeks, cause he saw something he wants to check out with my pancreas. My GP pain is getting unmanageable and beyond awful. And I'm still losing weight. A lot of days I simply don't even want to eat.

I feel like I'm right back where I was at last year when this pancreas stuff started with all these tests and referrals, etc...Of course, my performance at work is slipping too, so I've got all that added stress as well.

I'm so sorry sweetie. I've gotten into the newest sleep doc, so I should be getting another sleep study soon, and next Monday I'm getting an eeg,an MRI, and the daith I've been promising myself. Even if it's a placebo, I want to try it. May 10th I get the filter out and I get to go off the blood thinners soon huzzah.

The migraines have been worse. I think they're a combo, menstrual and weather. Our storm fronts have been unending and wacky. Our also doesn't help that we've been going through all of the stuff the fil brought down when he had to change storage units, so there's all the dust, and I'm sure some mold. Ugh. My house looks like a war zone. Hopefully soon we'll get through it and can be done.

That's great news on the sleep study. I've got my MRI appointment on May 10th, so that will be a busy day for both of us! My migraines always get worse in the spring with the weather changes. Let's hope we get through this!
