My visit with Dr. Thompson Thursday was rescheduled for today. He started feeling bad yesterday and had to go home. I got to his office this morning at 8:30am and did not leave until 11:00!! It was a wonderful visit; I am very pleased with him and his attitude. He went down my list of problems (symptoms) and explained to me one by one why it was happening to my body. He doesn't want to start me on meds just yet because it has been 3 yrs since my last tilt table and I have symptoms now that I did not have then so he wants to see how and/or if things have changed. From my family history info that I was able to get from my mom, he does think it's familiar as my maternal grandmother had a lot of the symptoms. He also thinks I might have some Fibromyalgia going on. He said that before finding out my mom has it as well. Aren't genetics just Great!!! Now I have something new to research.

My tilt table is Jan. 25th and my next appt. w/ him is Feb. 10th. I'm excited about the TTT so I can find out if things have changed, yet I also dread it because I know that I have to fast and by the time I do get to have something to eat around 11am, not only will I be nauseas but I also will have a horrible migraine!! But, if that's what I have to do to feel better and continue living life to the fullest, it's a small price to pay and I'm there!

Thanks again everyone for listening, being supportive and for telling about your life as well. I nice to know I'm not alone.

Wow Jill, maybe you've found a keeper of a doc! Good thing he had a chance to rest the day before he saw you...a 2 1/2 hour visit!

It is good to hear the excitement in your voice!

Take care, tearose

Jill,

Sooooo glad you felt good about your new doc!!! I hope he will be of great help to you! Please keep us posted on your tests and progress.

Looks like there are at least 4 of us from this area. Who would have guessed there'd be a little gang of us in such a small area? Maybe our condition isn't quite so rare after all . . .
