ERMAHGERD! what does this mean?!? you may be asking... well, nothing really. it means that my fingers and toes are freaking cold all the time. he seemed pretty excited to diagnose me with it. he said that i'm fortunate because i'm a runner and that keeps my blood circulating better than most people with this disease. so i guess if/when i ever stop running it could cause me some serious trouble. the good news is that i have no plans of THAT ever happening so there's that.
after that he took pretty much all the blood in my body and then sent me on my way. i was given the results the following monday night right after a huge tree fell on my car. here's a couple of pictures of the huge tree on my car:
more about the tree later... so the results of my blood tests came back and basically THERE IS NOTHING WRONG WITH ME! what? i mean... what?!? the doctor said that he isn't sure what is causing my symptoms, but that he wouldn't rule out my birth control (which i have recently switched to two months prior to the onset of my symptoms). i have yet to talk to my PCP about this because when i initially told him i believed it to be my birth control he shot that down immediately. i may have also failed to mention that i saw an allergist the friday before lakefront and when i got those results back they showed that i am severely allergic to perch fish, cod fish, and dust mites... go figure.
ok... the tree.
i guess the blessing is that if a tree wouldn't have taken out my car and i tried to trade it in i would have gotten next to nothing for it so this way i get a grip of cash to use as a downpayment for a new car. silver lining...
so that's what's been going on with me. i got to run today. just 3 miles but they were pain free. my leg didn't feel exactly "normal", but i'll take painfree and abnormal over painful any day of the week. we'll see... i just want to run comfortably and happily.
