As I suspected, I am going to be very busy these next few weeks. I have lab work, a thyroid scan, and an upcoming trip to an Ortho. Suspected culprits are:
A ligament/ tendon condition that causes subluxation of the hip and other joints
And the rest…..
I had never really thought that my double jointed (ness) could cause me any major problems. I have always been able to easily pop my joints in and out. Gross. But I didn’t go all Houdini on them. I don’t know how he did that shit, because it hurts.
Extra added bonus, I have an enlarged thyroid. Finally, something to blame my weight gain on.On a positive note, they did an EKG in the office. All clear. Blood pressure, normal. Where’s my smokes?
The blood work will check for other ailments. I am not giving up butter until I know what my cholesterol is. I realized today that I am no spring chicken. That makes it somewhat more surreal. Maybe this time around, I have something possibly serious wrong with me. Not life threatening, but unpleasant. The doctor gave me something called Mobic, it’s a NSAID. Did you know it can cause bleeding of the stomach? Possibly spontaneous combustion.
I want to know. But another part of me wants to be blissfully unaware.
