Ok... I was a patient in the hospital in December, and then again on January 05, because I have *something* weird going on with my lungs that is causing heart spasms. With even moderate exercise I become short of breath, and my oxygen levels in my blood drop dangerously low in the low 80's and when this happens I could have a heart spasms. NOT GOOD!
Yesterday I went to a Pulmonary doctor at Davis Medical University. I have a "butt load" of medical tests that need to be done on me. Because I recently was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis, an auto immune disorder that effects the joints... it is now thought that I might have Fibrocystic Pulmonary Disease, as the two seem to run together. Oh JOY!!!!!
They also gave me four or five other possibilities for the low O2, but those possibilities were even worse than the Fibrocystic Pulmonary Disease.
So... I am still on mostly bed rest with only moderate activity until the doctors can get my oxygen levels up to a normal range.
It's kind of freaky to breath in air and yet feel like you are not breathing enough air. And if I move around too much, which isn't much at all, my vision will go, and my hearing is as if someone has their hands covering my ears.
((( Very interesting living in a human body that is broken/ ill. )))
Well... I guess it safe to say I will not be participating in the 5 mile run for "Race For The Cure" this month. : (
With me not working... We are short $4,000 a month each month, and disability doesn't pay enough for even the co-pay from my insurance on my doctor's bill. GRRRRrrrrr.......
Ok... enough venting for this post.
Just very frustrated right now.
At least the "Pig Boys" are doing well. No URI, or other illnesses. That is a real blessing.
