I could get married.

Slightly stressed. Not depressed.

Gonna ask the boyfriend if he's a vampire.

Thanks guys! I do sleep. I'll get bloodwork (haven't had it done in years & no insurance -- how expensive is it?). I don't exercise much, but especially not lately because a five mile walk will put me into bed for two hours.

PS -- You have failed to scare me, Starwolf. :p


How sweet. And by coincidence, if you can, you should do your blood test after fasting (water is ok) for about 8 hours to check glucose levels.
this is especially important if another of your problems is frequent urination, especially if you have to get up frequently in the night. One thing that you might do, if you know anyone that has a glucose meter, is get him/her to take a reading. (Use a new lancet.) Just to rule things out, you understand......

You will also want to check things like liver enzymes, triglycerides, cholesterol, white count, etc. Blood tests are about the best general diagnostic tests that exist.

Get health insurance. (Easy to say, I know.)

WebMD says I probably have multiple sclerosis and fibromyalgia and heart rhythm disorder, so I'd better check for that too. :o :o :o

Yeah, I know. A little information is dangerous.

When my wife was pregnant, I stopped off at the medical school bookstore to pick up a huge textbook of pediatric medicine. The fricken thing weighs about a hundred pounds, and is the size of Baba Kama, Baba Metzia, and Baba Batra all together (along with the Rishonim). I figured that most parents have to call the pediatrician whenever the kid has a bit of fever or an earache, and hassle for what is usually not a problem. I thought that if I read this monster, i would understand enough to know when I really needed to call the doc, and when it would be a false alarm, right? I am certainly educated enough to understand everything in the textbook--I teach in medical schools, for cryin' out loud.

So I shlep this thing home, and read it from cover to cover. I then did what every first-year med student does after reading diagnostic manuals and pathology texts for the first time. i thought that my kids (chalila) would have every rare disease known to mankind (no matter if the disease has only affected 3 people in recorded history)--and I still had to call the pediatrician when the kids had an earache.

bottom line: nothing substitutes for experience and real information, especially in medical matters.

So go to a real doc, get blood work done, (hopefully) rule out anything serious, take a vacation with your BY friend, (Santa Fe is nice this time of year, as are San Francisco and Provincetown :biggrin: ) and feel better.

:biggrin: Great story -- may I steal it?

I had similar when I worked at a pathologist who diagnosed various lumps and bumps. I saw all the various types of cancer that people had in their lymph nodes and elsewhere, and I'd start to freak out every time I found an enlarged gland (which happened a lot, cuz I'd always be feeling my neck!). On the other hand, I saw how rarely anyone diagnosed with something life-threatening, so I'd never actually bother mentioning the nodes when I went for my checkups.

So yeah, nothing substitutes for experience. Hopefully most doctors have a healthy sense of proportion, something that the Internet certainly does not give you.

Sounds great! How long will you spend in each city? My votes are for longer in Chicago, Denver, SF, and N'awlins.

I second checking iron levels if you are doing bloodwork. Also a much more boring suggestion than the others that were mentioned here: if you eat a lot of carbs, try cutting them out and see if that helps.
Treat each day as your last; one day you will be right

If a man stands in the middle of the forest speaking and there is no woman around to hear him, is he still wrong?

I read that as "crabs." I wonder if I'm dylsexic.
