Thank you for letting us know Kirsty! What a weekend you have had! I'm sure extremely scarey. Did your Dr put you on any meds at all for this? At least you know what is causing the fatigue and weakness that has been bothering you, granted not exactly the best of news, but you know and can now move forward. Good luck and keep us updated!

I'm so sorry! What a frightening weekend for you...but I'm glad they found it, and hope they'll be able to successfully treat it. So that is what has caused your symptoms? Do keep us up to date with your scan.
