Good Morning all.  I had two ER visits this past week due to terrible weakness in legs/arms (mostly legs) and am having some type of digestive issues.  Lots of nausea, can't eat much at a time and feeling of food not going down and some tightness in the throat.  I do know that I have a hiatel hernia so I don't know if it's something due to this but I just want to ask everyone to please say a prayer as this has been really scary and nerve wrecking.  Trying not to worry about the not missing work (financial issues) but of course it is creeping in.  I just could't go in today, just too weak.  I will be going back to see my Dr. today at 11:15.  I know this isn't necessarily Firbo related but I wanted to let my Fibro family know what was going on.  I hope all of you are well and pain free.  Thank you all.
