I'm not sure if this is going to be displayed or will go right to your email.
My iPad and this forum are restrictive for me, as I lack the patience to read all instructions before using. turn I'll try anyway to answer your question.
I was treated and cured of Hodgkin's in 1984. I only received 45 treatments of radiation to just above the ears down, including my chest. I also had a splenectomy which left me with little immune system. So, I have all flu symptoms on a fairly regular basis which includes chronic fatigue, lightheadedness, and occasional visual disturbances. I have Orthostatic BP
And Tachycardia (POTS). I was also diagnosed with Fibromyalgia (Mainly, severe pain in neck and between shoulder blades. I do tend to get leg cramps on a regular basis). Immediately after my Hodgkins, I got hypothyroidism. I have had a few breast biopsies, 3 different surgical procedures on my lower back, and a femoral hernia operation just 2 months ago. I also had knee surgery and broke my toe. I'm trying to recall if I have forgotten anything? smilewinkgrin LOL! I mentioned in my other note that I also just had my first syncope episode. WEIRD and SCARY! I have a lot of tightness in the left side of my chest every day...feels kind of like a giant rubber band is in there. I wish doctors would be more forthcoming with information. How about you?
