Sunfish Posted August 19, 2005 Report Share Posted August 19, 2005 (edited) Hi all - just thought i'd give a quick update after my whinings of last week. i had my appointment with my old GP in toledo on wednesday (at my parents') - who is quite up on autonomic stuff, VERY interested, and a great doc overall. i'm using her as someone to touch base with just until i get hooked up with someone in cleveland. anyway, my back pain had not really gotten any better...or else it start to a bit and then come back worse than ever. i hadn't thought it could be a bladder/kidney infection b/c i didn't have the "typical" symptoms of pain with urination,etc. but seemingly i like to do everything the atypical way so i do in fact have an infection, likely in my kidneys b/c of where the pain is. fun, eh? score one for all those who told me to get to the doc. and another for those who made the kidney guess. and now i'm chowing down on antibiotics.on top of that i've been told that my back seems to be curving - scoliosis - which i've never been told before, so she did some x-rays b/c of that & the back pain too. she wasn't particularly worried (nor am i) but said it was something to watch b/c of all of my falls & hypermobility and all. the x-rays were not fun, though, between the weird positions i had to get in with the standing i had to do. i was WAY too close to passing out for comfort.and...she convinced me to get over myself and at least give sleep meds a try seeing that i haven't really gotten a good night's sleep since february. so i'm trying lunesta, which i may post about separately.okay, that's all for now. i'm back in cleveland after being well-fed by mom for a few days. three days to get in tip-top shape (hehe) before school starts.:-)melissa Edited August 19, 2005 by Sunfish Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
