Was in ER Thursday night, couldn't cope with pain, and surgeon's office said to go to ER. They decided to move forwards with treating the aneurysm in my carotid artery right away. Have the second procedure this Tuesday. Unsurfaced something interesting. I wrote to my brother in law about what was going on and he said a woman that manages their vacation home had headaches for years. Discovered she had two aneurysms in her carotid artery and lyme disease. I found an interesting article about this.

Cancelled meeting with naturopath that understands Lyme until I get through this procedure.

They directed me to stop the cats claw and the chlorella which is a good idea, not to be herxing while going through this.

My directions are to let my spouse do everything, no strenuous exercise, no lifting more than 15 pounds. If anything causes my head to hurt, I just stop.

I can walk around 20 yards.

Mostly horizontal, or sitting with the cat for company, giving a friends a heads up.

so good to have pain meds that work!

Scary new pain tonight. Chest pain in my heart area. Was having a passionate discussion about art. Lasted around 45 minutes.


New GP lined up.

Get this done.

Talk to the Lyme naturopath. See the infectious disease specialist - ask for the one that actually spoke intelligently about it in a local newspaper. He discussed the difficulty of diagnosis. I need this to go through my insurance if I want to take the anti-biotic plus herbal route.
