    Red face Just updating everyone

    I had ultrasound on carotid artey yesterday. Waiting for results. Of course the technician said why would you being 36 have artery problems, your to young! I said yeah and to to young for macular degeneration, and everything else! Bad thing is I feel very old!!!!!!! I will be 37 on April 18th. I seen Rhuem. he wants to wait to try an stop my cns attack until Neuro sees me 23rd! So hopefully it does not do anymore damage until then. Ill let everyone know if ultrasound shows anything.One good thing if it is MS too, I started some therapy a bee stung me on the left hand lastnight!Thats the side that was numb! I seen where people used bee stinging to help with their ms. Not sure how or what it does! (so any ways)lol Have a great day. Kathy

    hi kathy,

    i have a friend with MS...when her husband was alive, they used bee stings as one of her treatments,,,,she had great success, and claims to have looked forward to getting stung. I think they ordered special bees, but i will get more information if you would like.

    I have a really hard time with my lungs! I will be 30 but I have the lungs of a 78 year old.....at least that is what the doctor told me. I hate being young and feeling so old! I feel like we are just falling apart very slowly! I told Tim to keep the tape handy......we made need it!!!!!! I am thinking of you and sending you well wishes!!!! Hang in there!

    As I grow to understand life less and less,
    I learn to love it more and more.

    OUCH!!!! That hurts.

    If you are allowed to have asprine, take a dose 1/2 hour before a phlebotomy. Sip room temperature water for an hour before and it might go better. I drink down an entire bottle of the regular size drinking water (8 oz?) bottles 15 minutes before, but I start hydrating first thing in the morning.

    I have had aprox 75 units of blood removed and learned this trick early on. It works so good my phlebotomist would tell all the other HH patients who had vein problems to do it.
