Well, I went to the doctor to find out why the hell I have to pee about 30x a day, including getting up 5-6x a night (which by the way I am getting pretty fed up with). I am 1/2 ready to just sleep on the flipping toilet.
So, I tell my doctor all my woes..the peeing, the 9lb weight loss over night with a 2lb gain for the week, my fatigue, my smoking...all of it. So, tomorrow morning I am going to be poked, prodded, boobs smashed, warm dye going through my veins, you name it..it's being done. I had to pee in a cup, which normally is a problem. Not lately, I can pee in a cup probably every 1/2 hour. They found microscopic traces of blood so they are going to do a culture. She asked me if I have ever had kidney stones. Nope. I am also not feeling any pain, so I assume it's not a kidney stone (God, help me if it is!) I asked her to do a full workup on my thyroid instead of just the TSH to make sure we are in the right range. We have never gotten to the right range. She is doing cholesterol, she is doing a Lupus profile. It is quite possible that my Lupus is starting to give me issues. It has never involved my organs, I really do pray that it's not starting now. She will be checking for diabetes. Can't forget the other test, I get to put my boobs in a vice for a baseline mammogram because I am 36. I have never had one, but I don't imagine it is all that fun. Then to top all of that off, I have to go to the store later and get castor oil. For whatever reason, I need to take 4 tbs of castor oil tonight before I go to bed. Yummy!
*sigh...time to use the bathroom again.
