    Stressful Day

    Yesterday I had to go see Cardio for follow for my Dysautonomia.

    On one hand it was discouraging because everything he had recommended the last visit back fired for me.

    The recumbent bike brought on Costochondritis and awful rib pain issues.

    The G2 brought back my relux issues.

    The med were to expensive to try and even called drug company and they said no.

    So now he is making a call to Toledo in Hopes that the specialist there would get me in sooner as I am already on list at a years wait.

    My doc was thinking he would have better luck at getting me meds to try?

    So now he wants me to attempt walking for 5 minutes and stop and do this everyday for a week.

    I walked with mom lastnight just over to my park by my house and it had been so long since I had that HR rose like a quick trigger to 120 at barely do anything and was so dizzy I had to sit down on a bench and regroup but made it back home okay.

    This doe smake me see how important exercise is because the longer I had stopped, The harder it is to restart again but I am a fighter and will!

    Chronic illness is a pain in the a$$ people, Whether it is FM or Dysautonomia or whatever.

    We always have to find ways to keep our spirits up and going forward!

    Take Care,
    Penny :wink:

    God bless you sweet lady. We are all going thru so much these days that it is hard to imagine. But, I will say that you are going thru a lot more than me. I will be in prayer for you, hoping that you can get in sooner to see the specialist and get the meds that you need.
