Hello all, Perhaps I should start my messages here with, "Dear Diary". Kidding. Yesterday and today have been absolutely terrible health days. Brief run-down: Two nights ago, I felt an odd, brief tremor/tremble/shake/cold chills while standing up for a few minutes. Oh, I have all of the typical CFS symptoms (that just made my letter shorter Immediately after this feeling, my head had a dull pain. Also, it felt as though someone had kicked me in the head. You know the birds and stars feeling when you hit your head? It is like that but it has not gone away. Feels like my head is vibrating? Also, almost immediately after the "tremor", My skin was warm to the touch. Still is. It isn't really hot, like a fever, but it is definitely warmer. My vision is impaired, by that I mean, I see a lot of white "spots" and light bothers me. Also, I have an extremely difficult time talking (immediately run out of breath and feel light-headed) and have some chest pain (not the major symptom at the moment). Also, my "lump", which has been examined, in my left lower back area - hurts. Frustrating. 2 or 3 days ago I had a fairly good day! Now, I am struggling to write this. Here's a symptom that I have always experienced but have NEVER had an answer from a doctor or whomever: When i take a deep breath, at the point where your lungs feel somewhat full, I get cold chills throughout my body. What does that indicate? I have had this since my condition started, and only seems to get worse as my symptoms are flaring. All of the above symptoms are disabling. Can't drive. Barely can eat. Sometimes I have to crawl. As I indicated in my message that I just posted, is there anything that I can say to the doctor next week to get his attention with these problem. He sent me to a PT last visit because I told him my knees hurt! They do but that was at the bottom of my list! How easy it is to see a PT but not for the other symptoms? I guess I am confused. Hope someone can advise me. Best Regards, Richard <--- I'll make it a smile soon!
