Hope you're feeling better today. I've still got the stuffy-runny nose, but no aches or pains - thank goodness.

It's 65F. today here. Not warm, not cold. Just eh! I had the window open for about two inches. And it got cold in here. So had to close it. Now it is too hot. I can't seem to win.
Hope Pirate's feeling better today. Maybe your cold decided he's a better host. It's 64 and yucky looking outside today. Mom and I went to Walmart today, glad to be home now.

Here's some irony for you - I just found this thread and have been putting my health woes all over the place!

Good news: my cold/bronchitis/sinus infection merry-go-round seems to have stopped.
Bad news: the coughing set off my sciatica and brought up a new pain in my lumbar region, just above my fractures. The sciatica is getting better but the other pain has become a new chronic one. The only suggestion the doctor had is that the coughing might have jarred one of the fracture sites.

I have been otherwise doing okay, though laying low to try and fit the new pain into my management regimen.
Living gluten/dairy/sugar/fat/caffiene-free and loving it!

I haven't been on in a while because I've been dealing with atrial flutter for the past month. It's been a wild ride. One day I saw my ortho doc to see about my knee pain. We decided on Euflexxa injections. The next day I saw my primary doc for my semi annual blood work check up. My pulse was 140!! So a simple appointment turned into something else. EKG, echocardiogram scheduled, new meds. Unfortunately the meds did NOT work at all. 3 weeks later, I can't function. Lightheaded, dizzy, short of breath with a lump in my throat. To the ER and got some wonderful IV drugs that got my heart rate down to 60 from 140. New meds prescribed. 4 days later, nearly the same symptoms. Back to the ER where they tried the IV drugs again without much change. Admission time! Spent the weekend in the hospital and got cardioversion done Monday. Stayed home Tuesday and saw the arrhythmia cardiologist. Planning surgery for Jan. to permanently fix this. I've been feeling lots better since they shocked my heart back to normal. Didn't realize how bad I had been feeling until I started feeling well! Lots of new meds for the time being but hope to reduce those after surgery. Thankful to still be here and have the energy for the Christmas season!

(((Hugs jabbur))) wow! That must have scared you good and proper. I'm glad they have a plan for a permanent fix.

(((Gentle hugs LP))) Just when it was getting better, something else went wrong. I hope that heals up soon and well.

jabbur, sorry you have had to go through all that. I hope you continue "on the mend" in time for the holidays.

Hugs for jabbur and LP So sorry you're having such a hard time. Glad you're feeling better for the holidays.

I had a painful flare-up of Crohn's disease recently, but it's under control with a new medication.

LP, I think you have it backwards. Isn't it when one door closes, another opens? Sounds like you keep getting a door slammed into your face each time you walk through an open one. I hope that sciatica flare-up clears up soon and you're feeling great for Christmas - but sooner. (hug)

jabbur, what a scary situation! I'm glad the doctors have things under control for you now. It sounds like your problem is similar to what Cleveland Indians manager Terry Francona went through this baseball season. He ended up having a procedure called a cardiac ablation and was back to managing baseball games a week or so later. Please keep us updated on how things are going for you. (hug)
