Haven't fell off, yet!?!

The Earth that is.... I have just been under the weather and gaining weight.... which is adding to my health woes. Still don't know what is wrong with me. I am still experiencing pressure in my chest and a heaviness in my diaphragm. But I did find out why my arms were going numb and I had a horrible ringing in my ears.... I have gained weight and my bras were cutting off circulation.... yep, good thing I caught it in time.... Could have been considered brain dead... LOL! The morning shakes are still occurring... but I did stop taking all meds. I will be restarting the Donnatal tonight. Why didn't I get back on it sooner you ask... Well, the other morning... we are leaving to get the monsters to school and just as I was telling them to be careful, there might be ice..... I fall on my right side. Nothing broke, but very bruised.... Thank the gods for Epsom salts! So with taking all the Motrin I didn't' want a drug interaction. Tonight is the night to get rid of the shakes..... Hopefully! If it works then I can call the doctor and see what we can do. I am still waiting on the results from her office (as the hospital didn't run the blood they took from me)! I'm hoping that the blood work is fine. Then we can get down to the knitty gritty! I really think that my weight has a ton to do with why I'm feeling like shit. I didn't exercise the two weeks around Christmas and then I figure I pulled a muscle the second visit and that's partly to blame for my trip to the ER. Since we haven't gone back so the weight is creeping back on. 

But today I managed to get my butt on the exercise bike I have in the basement.... 20 minutes and 3.871 miles done. I am going to try and get on in 20 minute increments, but do an hour a day till I feel well enough to get back to the gym.

Just thought you all might like to know what's been going on here!

Gotta Run,

It is so nice to hear from you - was getting a wee bit worried. Now I am worried about all this pain you are in.

Is there anything the docs can do - I hope so.

Good job on the exercise bike. That is a nice workout. Keep that up and you'll be back in your old bras in no time. :D

Hugs to you my friend. Take care.
