I went to see my cardiologist today. It was one minor irritation after another, with a ray of sunshine thrown in.
It’s been cold and rainy in New York City all day. I was running late. I walked out without my cell phone or a warm enough jacket. My mom dropped me off by the doctor’s office and drove away. I went in only to find out the office moved last week. Then there is the 10 minute walk in the pouring rain. I get to the new office and I’m not in their new electronic records system because I haven’t been to their office in a long time. So I fill out the paper work and wait 2 hours!
When I did get to see my cardiologist, he was so happy to see me that he gave me a hug (which I was thinking I wanted when he walked in). In the past two years, I’ve improved a tremendous amount. He could see it and was pleased. He was also pleased that I finally started florinef for my blood pressure (which he tried to give me every time I saw him and which I always refused).
I had the exam, an echocardiogram and and EKG. My heart is okay, no permanent damage from all the pain and other symptoms earlier this summer. He read me the riot act about drinking enough and keeping my blood volume and pressure up. He was interested in the coil machine and my off the map Lyme Disease treatment protocol. I forgot to write down my blog address for him. Maybe I’ll send him a postcard or something.
- Lyme, lower back, 5 minutes
- Babesia, ilium, 1 minute each side; knees/elbows, 1 minute; liver, 5 minutes; chest, 5 minutes; shoulder blades, 15 seconds each
- Candida, abdomen, 10 minutes; chest, 2 minutes
- skin brushing
The night sweat last night was moderate, but I was so overheated by it that I stripped down. I woke up cold this morning.
My body doesn’t love the rain. My lower back and my whole spine have been in a fair amount of pain today. My joints are extra achy.
The walk to the cardiologist was tiring. My eyes are itchy and my head somewhat achy. I’m feeling pretty fatigued as well.
My abdominal swelling has finally receded. Yay!
Time for bed.
