Left side weakness abated, but motor skills impacted…

The pattern is holding consistent with what happened from the end of July to the 1st of Jan…

Real bad pain in my head in the right dura behind my eye and above my ear, left side of the body gets weak and after a few hours, the weakness backs off, but my motor skills and speech are impacted…

Have to admit, no tachycardia… That is another thing that has come back to haunt me… 

Before the BP med a week ago, it had been an on and off type thing, where I can feel my heart beat and pulse through out my body… Something that was beyond annoying after the Japan beating in 68….

Over the last 10 years, that sensation of feeling the blood flow, hearing the whooshing sound in my ears and feeling every heart beat, actually backed off and I think that is a clue…but I am not a doctor and this field of medicine is beyond confusing and it takes me time to research, understand and eliminate everything that does not apply and that takes time and lots of reading and with my eyes, that hasn’t been fun… 

Anyway, it leaves me exhausted… lots of time I can taste blood or a metal taste… things I have brought up to gastrointerologist, primary care….  just anyone that would listen… and we can see how far that got me…

The test is in a few days… by this time next week… I just might have some answers… and there goes the tachycardia… when that damn thing started in 78, It totally freaked me out… though the primary doctor I have now did catch it and got a diagnosis and don’t ask me the name… I can’t access the goofy site they use for our office visits… one of these days I will ask her again for the name she gave it…. just not a priority at the moment and neither is their website… some times technology is not all it’s cracked up to be… 

As for the vision this afternoon, it lets me know, when I get a pain strong enough to be annoying in the side of my head, the vision will change… on these days… the glass’ are on and off… but blurred and just a hint of double vision… which I have said before is like a kaleidoscope… when you really think about it… those things make everything look like you are seeing duplicate… so I need to watch my phrasing when I write… 

I am monitoring my vitals and I have taught Mike what he needs to know and the doctor confirmed one thing I wasn’t sure about, so he wouldn’t do the wrong thing… so I have done all I can, until the test is done or something happens…

Me…. I am rooting for the test next week and nothing happening… and doing a little shopping before coming home…

Hope springs eternal… that the people at Costco aren’t rude as usual… people on Hawaii just have zero sense of humor… no lie…
