Haylen - It gets better (OT)
Debsbears posted:
Joking aside for those following my Medical Mystery "It Gets Better" not! I will not list the past stuff because there is 5 Parts right now under teddybear200 Medical Mystery.

Anyway just got back from my Dermatology appt. regarding my "clubbed fingers and toes" it is confirmed believing it is caused by my low oxygen in the blood and/or my lungs. I need to go back to the Pulmonary Dr to have more tests done. Story of my life.

I have had more tests done on some other things in the past 2 weeks and they were confirmed I can add to the already long list of Medical Mysteries:

Cervical Spondylitis and Ankylosing Spondylitis. It is apparent my neck will not get any better.

I now have tendinitis in both ankles and knees making walking painful but that is life I have to walk to get around, I am not old enough for a wheel chair or should I say I refuse one at this time.

More blood work and heart monitor on Monday. That is it, thanks.
I shall wait upon the Lord and renew my strength.
Come follow my life's journey at:

Uggg...that was the wrong kind of "it gets better"!

I'm with Michelle - keep the faith - it will get better....knowledge is power!

I hope you have docs as great as your PCP at Mayo - I have to think you will encounter great professionals there!
