Anyways, I've been going to this pulmonary doctor since having had pnemonia this year,
and he tells me I have a yeast infection in my throat brough on by the asmanex, and so he give me
a shot of steroids in the (you know where) backside, and he also noticed the heart murmur and so on Tuesday
I go to SouthEast Memorial to get an echocardiogram, I'm just at this point were I want an end to testing, geezee...
So how come no one till recently ever noticed that I had a heart mur mur, my daughter was born with a
congential heart birth defect you'd think one doctor, would've picked up on this before last year...I only learned of this recently cause the anessth.
that works for my pain management doctor mentioned something about a heart mur mur....

and so I'm sore now from the shot in the backside
shocked
and well I'll let ya know what they says about the echo but it might turn out to be aortic stenosis, just
like what my daughter has, but finger cross that they have to do nothing...it's a 50/50
Hugz to everyone and may y'all get a low pain day...
(((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((Hugz))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))

and please no more testing.....

Hello Chartreux! Sorry to hear of the continued troubles, but I very glad to see that your keeping on top of it with check-up's

I understand what you mean about finding something new. I learned that I was borderline diabetic right before my back surgery, and I'm thinking what else can they find wrong with me.

Lets hope it is not serious, and maybe a pill will help calm the problem down.

Take care my friend, and as always keep us posted.

I'll be hoping that it isn't an aortic stenosis ( I will have to look that one up when I get done posting). Hopefully you'll feel better once you get the yeast infection taken care of, I would think it is making swallowing difficult. Is it painful?

Sounds like you need to go lie down, preferably on your side and take a break. I just had a orange creamsicle and it sure did hit the spot.

Let us know what they find out on Tuesday!

Jag, I can sure sympathize with you...it seems every time I see one doctor, he discovers something else wrong with me and sends me to someone else. I think I have to have both ends scoped now for problems with swallowing on the top side, and a fair amount of blood on the bottom end of the digestive process.

I hope you get all the answers you're looking for and quickly, so you can put all this testing behind you. I hope you start to feel better soon.

   Dear Chart,
 
     Good evening *warm hugg* Hopefully by now you are resting with your feet up. I am sorry you have had one after the next, after the next, problems. You are more than entitled to be frustraited with it all. I can't offer much in the way of advise as I am in the same boat with endless testing. I am nearly done thou, I hope.... I hope that you too, will be done soon.
 
     You are in our prayers tonight. Please, stay strong as possible through the seemingly endless testing.

My dear Chart, so sorry you feel so down. I too know what you are talking about with all the testing. It seems to be one thing after another eh!! I am going thru the same thing right now as well. Just had the colonoscopy yesterday which was horrible as the meds they gave me in my iv did not touch me, i need the upper endoscopy the end of May, has to see the GI specialist on Wed, the urologist on may 10 with a cystoscopy and i am sure if i look at my calendar there is more, oh a bone density test, gp. appt. See, never ending.
I hope you don't have any serious heart problems. I will pray for you sweetie!! I can't say i have heard of prednisone for yeast in the throat, usually it is an oral med. that you could gargle with then spit it out.
Hang in there and remember do one day at a time. Rest a lot and take care of your body.
Keep us posted, ok!!

Stay strong my friend
Hugs

Chart

I had an echocardiogram done last thursday, the only thing I did not like about it, is they make you lie on your left side ( I don't do well laying on my left side!) then after they get those pictures, then they had me lean back a little, till my back was about at about a 45 degree angle to the cot, it was then, that my back started knotting up on me! Oh boy here comes a spasm! I told the lady that I need to move! and move now!!! so she let me change my position alittle. Ahhh!!! Relief!!! They got a few more pictures and then I had to lay on my back, (I was able to lay with my knee up as I just can't lay flat!) and they press the echo tranducer thingy up under my ribs and sternum and got a few more pics, and that was it, all over with! Took under an hour total time!

I knew that I had MVP but when I went to my sleep apnea doctor who is a Pulmonary doc, I told him about my shortness of breath that I have been having lately, and then he told me my legs looked swollen, and check them out, it is funny because my youngest daughter who is nurse at Mayo told me the same thing when they were down here a couple of weeks ago! Anyway he asked if anybody was monitoring my heart murmur? Noooooo! Nobody has checked it in years! So he ordered blood work and the echo and I have another in lab sleep study done the 9th and then I get more blood work and chest X-ray and a pulmonary function test done and then I see him on the 15th of June to find out what is going on!

Chart you have never been diagnosed with a murmur before? MVP (Mitral Valve Prolapse) will come on in allot of people, later in life, I was in my 30's when I was first diagnosed a week or two after the Navy did surgery on my knee! I was having chest pains so when I went back to the surgeon for a follow-up on my knee I asked him if he done something to me to cause chest pain. He listened to me and found the murmur. Anyway it is allot more common in women than in men. I was put on a beta blocker for it for quite a few years, then they took me off of it and I got High BP so they put me back on the same med for my BP. I am still on it (Lopressor) Anyway I think I would rather have this MVP then what your daughter has! But neither one of them is good! It is best just to have nothing! I sure hope your echo shows something simple!

It seem like for most of us it is just one thing after another. Is it age getting us or is the CP wearing us down? Anyway Chart I sure hope your echo turn out well for you!

Good Luck to YOU!!!

Chart... It's always something for most of us...isn't it?? I just wanted to let you know that I'm thinking of you... and wishing you well w/ your echo on Tuesday... please let us know when you get the results... I'll be praying for you... and hoping that you don't have to keep doing all these tests!! It's exhausting and stressful, I know.

WB... As you know, I had my echo last week, too... my back did the exact same thing... I HAD to move many times... then my arms fell asleep... then I felt like I couldn't breathe... Ahhhh! Mine lasted about an hour. Did you have to hold your breath multiple times during the echo?? I'm already tachycardic to begin with...and have breathing issues... so when I'd have to hold my breath - my heart rate would shoot up like crazy! The tech was like "wow, your heart is racing..."... :)

All these tests are so much fun... NOT.

Good luck again, Chart...

Hi Charty, so sorry I'm late to your party! Some party hug/ You must feel like your stacking dominos in rows and before you finish, the whole row gets knocked down! I'm hearing that old Van Morrison song in my head> Ohoooo-O-Domino!!! I'm so sorry your problems seem to go on and on! I feel that way sometimes too but my problems are nothing comparred to yours! Hang in there old friend, it has to end sometime!!! It just has to!!! Then hopefully you'll be all rested up and ready for another 50 years!!! I hope they tell you the heart ting is nothing to worry about and maybe just give you a pill like they did for W/B!!!

((((((((Char))))))))))). I know how you feel - being sick of tests & all. Hopefully this one goes smoothly. At least you can look forward to your daughter coming home soon! She must be almost done with her semester now. I'm sure the joy of having her home will make up for some of the suffering you've had to go through the last few months.

hugs,

Hi Chart!

I'll keep you both in my prayers. I think most of us here understand how draining it is going to one doctor's appointment after another. If we weren't worn out before then we sure are after dragging all over to see doctors.

Keep us posted!

Let us know what the doc has to say about your test results today. I have a doctors appt this afternoon but will check in this evening to see if you've posted anything. Good Luck!!!!  I've used Zanaflex and even the 2mg dose made me too sleepy to use during the day.  Hope you have better results.

Chartruex,

I'm very sorry to hear about the loss of your friend!

I noticed that you have an enlarged pituitary gland. I'm certainly not a Dr, but this may be the answer about your memory. A damaged pituitary gland was my answer and it is easy to test and easy to treat.

Please consider asking for a HGH Stim Test (only from a really, really good endocrinologist). All I had to do was go in fasting, take two pills and have blood drawn a few times. Now I take shots every day and my memory has come back!!! My muscle spasms and racing heart are also much, much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm not diagnosing you or saying you'll be 100% symptom free......I'm certainly not, but I do feel better with my brain working again!! It doesn't cure everything, but now I can at least remember who I spoke to yesterday or what I said to my husband or child. I'm not perfect, but a few months made a great deal of difference. I do have to say, though, that it doesn't help CP, so no benefits there, but a working mind is a blessing.

It's worth a shot, anyway.

All my best to you!
Retired Mom

Hi Char, I really hope the test results come back ok. We all seem to have ongoing health issues, I'm sure all these meds play havoc with our bodies!

Lets hope the heart is something minor and treatable. Just wanted to send you my best healing thoughts and let you know I'm thinking of you, golitho
