Just an update

Had the blood tests and ECG done, and went back to the doctor for the results.
The doctor has finally decided to take some action and wants me to have a CT scan done in Brandon, MB. There is no neurologist involved yet in my case.
Am trying to set up an appointment, but have no transportation yet; most of my funds are depleted over the last 1 1/2 years, because I’ve lost the majority of my music students (likely due to this illness), so now I’m in financial straits.

At my last 2 doctor’s visits in the past 2 weeks, my feet were shuffling only 6inches at a step, but the doctor gave me no advice or treatment for the swelling in my legs. Couldn’t get a knee-jerk reaction most of the time he was tapping; no reaction to foot-tests, even though I could feel, my feet just didn’t move. Vision problems the same, muscle cramps, nerve spasms, dented fingernails, nosebleeds.

Last month, the Flu Clinic co-ordinator took notes over the phone regarding my reaction to the flu shot in 2007.
I don’t expect much from the health-care profession here; so far, they’ve only watched me become more and more crippled to the point where I’ve been losing everything I’ve got.

During the doctor’s visit, I didn’t mince words; didn’t tell him off, but repeatedly told him that it’s been over 1 1/2 yrs; I’ve been to see him about it 4 times, and yet nothing has been done. He didn’t say anything, but took notes again, and only asked me if I had any plans to kill myself.

I have weakened again…back to the medical walker again, and the pain in my muscles is so bad I can’t sleep nights. On the plus side, my lungs feel better, because I’m staying indoors as much as possible while the town keeps spraying trees and lawns and boulevards with pesticides and herbicides. I’m watching my diet, so my heart can recover.
I do believe these neurotoxins gave me this relapse; it keeps happening every time the town sprays, or when the farmer’s fields around town are sprayed. Same reactions, and set-backs.

I could feel your prayers; thank-you, and please keep praying.
Will check back again.

I had a Lumbar puncture on Thursday and went back on Saturday because it started to leak.

I won’t know the results for a couple of days.

I am also scheduled for a test don’t know the name. I will have electrodes on the head and spine.

That is all.

Oh, the lumbar puncture was easier than the epidural that I had for my second child.:)
