Some super good news for a change!!!!!

Good news. Really good news. I don't have MS. I had some of the symptoms and the lesions in my brain and they thought it might be.

I have Neuropathy in my right and left arms, causing numbness, tingling and pain sometimes. The tendon that runs across the elbow is swollen and needs to probably be repaired, but for now, just heat on each elbow and try not to over do with lifting and such.

The muscle cramps are caused from my Pernicious Anemia, and for that I will drink tonic water with magnesium it in. How exciting, I know I can't wait. LOL

The ruptured disk, I'm going to have to learn to live with the pain, because they are not touching my back for surgery.

The lesions in my brain can be caused by the Pernicious Anemia, also and age. Yes, that's right, lesions can show up on anyone's MRI that is old. LOL Go figure.

So basically, I'm doing pretty darn good. I'm thrilled about the outcome and hope to have my arms back in shape in no time.

Hello to everyone and hope your lives are going well.

I've been doing the snoopy happy dance all day. :) I'm so relieved. Did you know that Pernicious ANemia is where the story of Vampires came from? THey used to get so weak, that the family members would let them drink some of their blood. The sun hurts your eyes, just like a vampire would and they crave bloody things when the weakest. LOL It just cracks me up. I'm Greek and Italian with a little bit of Norweigan in there. It's a Scandanavian disease. Go figure. LOL So usually, they are pale and light hair and all that jazz.

As long as I'm careful with the Pernicious Anemia and don't abuse my arms, I'll have it made. Still dancing a jig. :) If my back wasn't acting up, I"d run around the block, screaming my news to everyone.

I'm so pleased for you Patt!
I know what it's like living with health problems but I try to cling to the 'what doesn't destroy me makes me stronger' attitude and you're a strong person tostart with!

I ruptured my disc last year and spent a very painful year on muscle relaxants, painkillers and sedatives to get past the worst pain. They did eventually give me the injections into the nerves that I'd heard bad things about, but it worked for me and reduced the pain and inflammation enough to get me back on my feet.
It's not cured (never will be 'cured') but I'm back on my feet and able to function pretty normally, so there IS a light at the end of that tunnel- it does get better :)
Sending positive thoughts and good wishes your way! x
