Falling

Back on my doctor rounds trying to figure out this loss of balance thing,, EKG, MRI head and neck. Cardiologist, neurologist, heart monitoring and of course more blood tests. Did a simple walking test, like the walk the line test for driving under the influence. The outcome was shocking, I was barely able to perform the test. He said my results resembled a 70 year old. I am a very active 51year old. I was able to pass this test 6 months ago with flying colors.

Tomorrow I go for my one year follow up, prepping tonight and tomorrow with mr. Fleet.

I know you won't get your results tomorrow but good luck with your test. I am very anxious for several days leading up to the test. The technican gives me a copy of it and I go right home and pop it into the computer. Can't read it like they can but I can see when something is illuminated...I compare it to the orginal and then I feel better.

Prayers for you,

Cherryl

Showed similar symptoms in 2009. She had a thoracic cyst impinging on her spinal cord.

Success!!!!! Clean,clean, clean, see ya in four months.

Regarding my balance issues:
I am going for an MRI soon as they call me. On wednesday I will wear a heart monitor for 24 hours. EKG came out fine. Blood tests are exactly the same. Doc marked me as anxiety disorder in the files that showed in the computer not on the paper he sent me home with. I wonder if he really has any .....s Under that little white coat. Anyway, I don't think he likes working this hard, having to answer so many questions and it probably doesn't look good on his part ordering all these tests. I know the answer is coming and that makes me anxious too. I know my gp believes its in my head (ha ha), but I know it's real and I know it can be fixed.
