Continuation "My Ongoing Saga"
Last updated: December 2021
Hi all, I don't remember when my last update was. Sometime after my trip and assessment of my hip at Mount Sinai, Toronto on September 10th.
Fatigue strikes again
Well, for a while I thought things were going good even though I was still having fatigue as usual.
I had my 3rd vaccine (booster) on November 14th. It threw me for a loop when I woke up the next morning with extreme headache and fatigue on top of my everyday fatigue.
This lasted for just over a week.
Upcoming respiratory appointment
Now, before this, I had noticed getting winded more which seem to slowly get worse.
I booked an appointment with my GP with the appointment about 1 and a half weeks away on Nov. 30.
He arranged a CT scan of my chest which I had last week on Friday. He called me today and yes, I have inflammation in my lung tissues.
This correlates with my last bloodwork that showed a lot of high markers, including my CRP.
I go for a breathing test on Jan. 6th and my GP is arranging a consult with a respiratory specialist.
Controlling what I can control
I really hadn't felt like going on here for the last while.
It seems to me it is always complaints about new things coming up.
I sure hope this is the end of the issues for me.
Chin up, keep smiling, and be happy. It is the most special wonderful time of the year.
Merry Christmas everyone
Blessings and prayers,
