As I read more and more of the messages that have been posted, I see more and more of myself in them. For example, Emah's balance post revealed I'm not the only one who bangs into walls, people, etc. I trip a lot too. I don't fall down like a drunk, but I trip over things that aren't there, I blamed it on weak ankles. And sleep issues. I don't sleep worth a hoot, and haven't for years. So I'm going to ask the board if anyone has experienced something that has plagued me for years - weak 'pipes'. One of the reasons I don't sleep is that I'm up every 2 hours 'relieving' myself (I do use the bathroom *L*). I have a very strong bladder, I can hold it for hours in the daytime, even though I KNOW I have to 'eliminate'. But at night, it is constant. My Sil who is a PA suggested that perhaps the waking up isn't because I have to hit the porcelain God again, but that when I do wake up I realize I might as well take that trip. Anyone else plagued by this? I don't take diuretics and I don't drink ANYTHING after 5:00 pm (unless it is a tiny bit of water to take pills). Nothing helps. My blood sugar is normal, my kidney functions are normal, my bloodwork in fact is all normal. My next trip is too the urologist, but I'm so tired of taking off work for doctors, I have postponed it. I also developed small, itchy bumps on my scalp about 3 years ago. They don't scab or crust, you can't SEE anything on my scalp, but if I run my fingernails through my hair, over my scalp I can feel them. And they can itch like the dickens. I told my hair dresser and she checked and said it isn't lice (my son's stepsister had them a few years back). So I'm curious. Are they my own little special 'gifts' or does anyone else have them?
