The Nothing.

We met with my orthopedic doc today, whom we really like and trust (praise!), and went over the triple phase bonescan (I like saying the full name of it, so sue me!) results. Which were a whole mess of nada, nothing, zip, zilch, etc., etc... He seems to think it's a nerve issue, hence the appt with the neurologist I have on Thursday. Good thing is I've done all the tests they would have me do (EMG, bloodwork) so I just need them to check out my weirdness and hopefully put a name to it and let's treat it already!!! The doctor offered his apologies and the fact that sometimes there is a freakazoid-er, I mean patient- that is the "1 in a 1,000" that just makes them scratch their head at. Yep. Heard that before.

We are also going to see a pain management doctor tomorrow. I am really on the fence about this. I'm uncomfortable with medicine fixing symptoms and not the root cause and I'm drug sensitive. I'm highly allergic to every antibiotic and some other stuff for starters. And I don't like being mentally fogged up. Who does? BUt I understand the severity of untreated pain. I get it. So we'll see. He is an anthesiologist too. I'm a fan of those guys. Remember, I've had 13 surgeries.

Anyways, blah, blah, blah. Naptime is a happenin'. Thank you for your prayers. ! ANd praise for clear scans.
