A series of unfortunate physical ailments began Last July 2016 and I won't detail them here (see Link). In any case the gastrointestinal condition seemed manageable with just diet an occasional Rx. Then a vicious skin rash all over my face came to join the list of discomforts early March but the Appointment with the dermatologist is not till the 24th, then a violent flare up of the original gastro symptoms and a new medication, which after two weeks was not improving the situation. Next, a series of self administered tests were accomplished over the 17th, 18th and 19th, delivered to the doctor on the 20th for lab results due in 7-10 days. The Doctor returns on the 25th meanwhile, exhaustion. Lastly my left leg is aching from a deep vein problem and I'm looking for a clinic that will do the tests which can include--computed tomography (CT or CAT scan; a special technique that uses a computer to combine many X-ray images into a detailed image of an area body that is 100 times more clear than a regular X-ray, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), ultrasound studies of leg veins or the arteries of the head and neck, angiograms or venograms, an ultrasound of the heart (echocardiogram, and electrocardiograms (ECGs). In our current health care system here in the city there's no one place to manage care but many different places.
I'm feeling pretty lousy and a little scared since I hardly have any neighbors left and no friends close by. Will keep any one interested updated. Meanwhile I don't know how much time I'll be spending here for a while. I'm in a blurry fog.
