  It's seems like I cant remember things that I need to do without my wife calling me all the time and leaving notes all over the house and in my truck for me, I found a old coffee table in the back of my truck today and I don't remember were it came from and on top of that it was broken from something I had put in the truck to make room for it, what it was I have no clue at all and some fencing but for what?
 
  I called my wife and asked her what all this crap was for and she told me, but I don't remember putting it in my truck at all. and why I had to brake the table to get something in the back as it has a canopy on it. and even taking my meds I have a big note on the door that says take your meds now before feeding the horses, I just don't recall a lot of things lately, even taking my valium for my back pain I know that I have taken more then one at a time but not at the same time, maybe within 10 to 20 minutes of it and I end up falling a sleep from it.
 
  This has been going on now for a few years now, but the back pain is something that tends too hurt and run around the sides of my chest and at times it feels like I'm being stuffed full of food but it's not from that as I tend not to eat much and is very painful at times and hard to breathe, my pdoc has past it on as a GERD but yet the pain in my ribs and back are still there and have gone to the ER for it but it was always past on to my anxiety but I do not tend to panic when this is happening I just go with the flow and it tends to pass in time.
 
  Can enyone tell me what maybe going on as I'm really in a fog on this and when this happens and I tend to get hot flashes from from it?

I can sooo relate...I have a sticky note on my bathroom mirror that says "Take meds".  and in front of me right now are 9 sticky notes with various reminders.  Don't feel alone.  I also have a pain on the left side of my back right at my bottom rib line for over a year.  I have been seen by the AK spine institute for various steroid injections, and even a radiofrequency ablation (which was supposed to burn and kill the nerves there) with no help.  I live with ice packs all the time as that is the only thing that helps.  This summer I spent time out on the boat salmon fishing with my ice packs! (But I still went fishing!) I have had rib xrays, spine xrays, MRI's, bone scans, etc with no explanation for the pain.  I have days of brain fog and multiple other symptoms. I also have pain on the front right side of my ribs and side which for years I assumed was gallbladder related and I would have to eventually have removed.  But tests show that my gallbladder is perfect.  So still don't know why the pain.  Multiple other symptoms, but won't go into all of them.

Here's your laugh for the day...my step-mother (who lives in Louisiana) is convinced all my symptoms are caused by an "Alaska disease" and I just need to find an Alaska shaman or medicine man to cure me!  That's it, Alaska is causing all of this...we just need to move "outside". haha!

Hope you are feeling better...my husband can relate to what your wife has to deal with I'm sure. Good days, bad days...you just never know....just curious, who is your primary doc...don't have to put a name...just initials. I know all the docs.  Internal med, general? I see a general, internal med, neuro, chiropractor, accupuncturist, podiatry, and doc at spine institute.  All except neuro and spine are in soldotna.


Never give up; keep searching for the answers.  One day I will find them.

  Oh man do I hate ice packs lol but most of my doc's are in Anchorage but I do see a few here as well just mainly for my diabetes is Doctor F/DH/K and Dr Powers who has past on now, Kind of funny when I was seeing Dr Powers he told me of a guy that went out fishing with his cast on and got fish guts down inside his arm cast and had to put his hand out side the window to sleep from the smell of it, then dumby me I go out bear hunting and got a nice black bear with my cast on and got all kinds of crud down in my cast, so as soon as I hit town remembering about that guy and the fish guts I headed right for the car wash and pressured wash my cast inside and out lol

  So is this your first winter here, so far not to bad for the cold weather yet don't you think?

No...this will be second winter...closed on lodge June 2, 2006. I've been seeing Dr. F for over a year. Great guy, but he hasn't had much luck figuring out what is wrong. I know Dr. DH (ends in izer?) from the hospital and Dr. K is a very intelligent internal med and well liked by everyone. My internal med is a new doc to the area, female, and I like her very much. Her and her husband are both internal meds. Very funny about the bear...I can just imagine! Did not know Dr. Powers, before my time.

Last winter wasn't as bad as I was expecting...being from south Florida and all!!!
