To top off an already bad week, I got the results of the tests I had done last week, which I wrote about in the post called Finding Myself. A blood disorder I had over two years ago … has returned. This means I’ll experience regular migraine headaches, stomach pains and, on most days, a feeling of nausea. I’ve had all these symptoms for the past few weeks. The migraines average out to once every three or four days and the stomach pains every day, but not all day; it’s worse in the mornings. The nausea is more of a seedy feeling than anything else.
Two years ago, the doctor and specialist both said there has to be a reason for the disorder, but neither could find it. Then on 23 December 2005, I woke up and had no pain. Over Christmas and the New Year period I counted my pleasing with each pain free day. Later tests proved the disorder was righting itself and we all breathed a sigh of relief.
Now it’s back. Now I’m with a new doctor and she told me that there has to be a reason for the problem. I told her about the previous tests I’ve had – and there were a lot – and she is requesting copies of those reports so that any new tests can be compared to them.
I have a headache now. I hope it doesn’t develop into a migraine. I’m trying not to hold on to the stress I feel, but it’s difficult and an uphill battle. This is just another problem at Grand Central Station … which is my life.
