Planning an adventure
I sent a message to my pain doc asking if she could help me or if I would be wasting my time. I told her the situation. She is out for the week so her nurse called me. After a little phone tag, we finally connected. She said that it would be better to see her in person and that is when I was worried. The doc’s office is in no where land according to the T but I think I figured out how to get there. I would take an Uber but it’s $50 one way. I might take an Uber back home, depending on how tired I am. I plan on taking this adventure probably Friday to see where I am going and how difficult it is to get there. If it is difficult I might ask my sister if she could take me.
Last night I finished my workbook on BCBT. I started reading On Juneteenth. It is a really easy book to read so I think I might be able to finish it by the end of next week, if I keep a steady read schedule.
I finally made an appointment to see my ortho guy for my shoulder. I am tired of it waking me up in the middle of the night. Thing is though, it is not really my shoulder but my bicep and deltoid muscles that wake me up. They flare and I am in so much pain. Sometimes just getting up and sitting up for a little while calms it down. But then when I lay back down again, an hour or two later, the pain is back so I have to take something for it.
My foot/ankle has been hurting me most of the day and now the pain is back up my leg. My shin really hurts and I haven’t done anything all day. I just been drinking coffee to stay awake. I had three cups so far. I am thinking of having another one but I had a big lunch so I am really full right now. It’s raining so that is why I am hurting. I am going to take some gaba to try and settle it down. Hate hurting so much.
My pcp responded to the echo report. It is normal and she still recommends I go see the cardiologist/EP to see if there is more to be done about the tachycardia (fast heartbeat). I am struggling with this because the appointment is virtual not in person so how is he going to know if I have a fast heartbeat that day? I just hope I don’t have to go through a stress test. I saw my father go through one and it wasn’t fun.
I am having #4 cup of coffee to avoid a nap. I am so tired. I haven’t showered or brushed my teeth today. I plan on taking the shower after I finish the coffee. Hopefully I remember to brush my teeth!
