Lifting heavy for 2 weeks without more than 1-2 hours sleep nightly and working round the clock on a keyboard plus detailing my totalled truck inside and out was a mistake.
Truck : I was able to have the appraisal for total exceed the repair costs
Bodybuilding : I was able to hang on to all muscle while on high dose prednisone
Cost : Hospitalization since Thursday it is now Sunday.
Judgement : foolish
The problem with the left hand after both hands recovered from extreme overuse is that I have lost my ulner pulse resulting in cold left hand and blue pinky finger tip. The radial nerve is doing the job as both service the hand and meet in the middle. They diverge near the elbow so somewhere in between it is occluded - My guess would be in the hand as that is where both hands became painful and I halted lifting.Unfortunately they wanted to put guide wires into my femoral artery and go all the way to the hand to resolve this, leaving me lying in the ICU for 24 hours unable to move.
Tonight is 'last supper' in case we go that route, I do not want to go that route because the surgeon who uses these wires to go inside peoples BRAINS said PREDNISONE
greatly adds to the risk as the guide wire may slice a section of artery
open weakened by prednisone.No more predisone
in my future knowing that !Good news
: Despite GI / GP ignoring requests I have been getting daily iron infusions here to resolve lingering anemia - it was not the mild type either.Good news
: My heart passed with flying colors when they originally thought it was the source of all the trouble. ER doctors were stumped resulting in escalation to hospital, I disconnected from IV and drove home to see daughter then on to hospital for admittance.
Talking to 20 different doctors and nurses here is difficult, keep getting a different story every time despite a 'hospitalist' doctor being assigned my case.
Hopefully this all works out tomorrow, I do enjoy the valium at night and sleep deeper than ever in my life for a good 6 or more hours.
