I Need Prayers

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone,

My eyes started getting blurry this morning off to one side, so I called my dr's office since it wasn't the first time. They told me to get my eyes checked out first at the eye dr's. So I did. The eye dr dialated my eyes, and discoverd that the blood vessels in the back of my right eye are very tiny. My eyes were just dialated last year and they were fine. She said it is something systemic and I need to see my PCP. I have a call in to them and am waiting to see when I can go in. I have also been having lots of headaches. So, I am started to get really scared.

Please pray that they will quickly find out what is going on and that I will be fine. My kids need me, and I am scared.

Thanks

Oh sweety, I will say a prayer right now that you find out quickly what the problem is and that is easily treated. :)

Try not to panic, and let us know how you do.

You got it. I hope they find a quick and easy resolution. It is scary to think of something going wrong with ones eyes.

Thanks for all the support guys! That really helps me feel better.

I went to the dr yesterday. He wanted me to go to another eye dr that works at my insurance companies clinic and have them dialate my eyes and check them. I told him that I didnt want to and that I trust the dr I went to see. She did a very thorough exam, and I wanted an MRI or CT scan. He finally agreed to order an MRI. I will have it done next week sometime. He seemed convinced it was something wrong with my eye, when the eye dr said it wasn't my eye. I think he was just trying to do what the insurance company would want him to do. They don't like paying for MRI's without a really good reason :angry: . So I guess the possibility of an aneurysm or brain tumor isn't a good enough reason for them!

I hate HMO's.

I will update when I find out the results of the MRI.

Thanks!

I just wanted to update you guys.

The MRI came back negative. My dr suggested that maybe I was anemic and I needed to take a multi-vitamin.

Needless to say, I am switching dr.s I have an appointment with an Osteopath/Family Practictioner on the 18th. Hopefully, I will get some answers. I am going to write up a list of ALL my symptoms to take to him so I won't forget anything.

Thanks for all the support! You guys are great!

No, I haven't been tested for Pernicious Anemia. What kind of testing do they have to do for that?

The start of testing should be a Complete Blood Count.

Other blood tests would be done looking for...

intrinsic factor and parietal cell antibodies

bilirubin, potassium or cholesterol levels in the blood

serum iron and iron binding capacity.

There is a strong link to Celiac or any type of intestinal lack of absorbing B12.

If there were any test results that made this present doctor suggest you "maybe have anemia" may be used to order the need for further testing.

    I am celiac and eat gluten-free, DF, SF and sunflower free because I'm highly reactive to all 4. I discovered about a year and a half ago that I would have severe and immediate GI reactions, similar to as if I ate dairy, to anything with sunflower/safflower products in it, but I think that's when using the oil became more prevalent too. Strange because I loved sunflower seeds as a kid. I've also linked it to places I've eaten out where everything was fine and then discovered they started using s
    So i recently had a baby and 3 months postpartum I started celery juicing and after juicing my stomach would be in so much pain. So I stopped it for a while and a whole month no pain or issues. I made an apt with a GI doctor to just get my blood work checked everything came back great except the Ema it was 1:20 he said it was strange because all the other Celiac panel test were negative my Ttg and the genetic screening even. So I made an apt with another doctor for second opinion she stated that
Potatoes are good for breakfast! Your concoction sounds pretty good. K, how about this? Peel & dice potatoes, fry them in just enough olive oil to keep them from sticking in a skillet until they begin getting crispy. Toss in diced sweet peppers or maybe chili peppers, onions to soften. I know you're not doing egg yolks b/c of iodine but you can do the whites. Pour egg white on top until the white is done. If you have a steak or some leftover steak, you can heat that on the side. YUM!
