Saw the post while popping in tonight and thought the timing was good to post on my HA firing back up again.
I've posted previously about this and was driving my wonderful wife crazy with my constant worry about my health. It got to the point where I went on Effexor thinking it may help me out. Well after only 2+ weeks I have quit cold turkey because of the side effects, especially the constant sweating. Alongside of this I just decided to change my mindset because of how much I hated these side effects. After a week, things seemed to be pretty good.
Then I got a call from my doc today on some bloodwork I had done and my HA is right back where it was.
My lipase levels are elevated (slightly) High end for me at this lab was 286, and my levels were at 319. 3 months previous at another lab the high end was 300 and my level was 296. So it has risen but I guess not going through the roof. One of my HA fears is Pancreatic disease so the minute I have anything that can point to a pancreatic issue I panic.
The reason she called me though was that my ferritin levels were low enough that she wants to put me on something. Don't know what the reading were.
Don't know what this all means, but I think it will push my HA coping to the max.
Any pointers/tips are appreciated.
