Pearls and Dreams
I know this blog was started about my journey in life ..which is dealing with many medical issues as well as being excited about the changes in me as I grow and mature into actual adulthood (just cause it took me 40 years to get here!)...
but sometimes I feel like all i post about is the medical stuff ..maybe it's because it's feeling like that's all that's happening?
I'm still in a great mood, excited ... I'll have to post on that stuff later today but right now my time is limited because I am off to yet another doctor's appointment!!!!!!
I called my doctor yesterday to tell her that I'd woken up every night over the weekend with charlie horses in both calves.
I started Vytorin 2 weeks ago. Since I have myasthenia gravis and I'd already had a bad reaction muscle wise to Lipitor ...
We were very cautious .but with a cholesterol of 310 ... you have to do something ... and I'd already done the diet changes and am already exercising to the max with my health issues.
So, I figured she'd just have me to a blood test, but they want to see me.
My right calf is sore today from the severity of last nights charlie horse.
Is ... this the reaction that all the commercials warn about? Report to your doctor any signs of muscle pain or weakness because it might be signs of a serious but rare muscle problem ....yada yada yada
or is this a reaction to physical therapy and am I simply working out too hard in Physical therapy????
