Not MS!

Hi Guys, I had to visit my doctor on Tuesday headache for 7 days or so and my right eye giving me some trouble. It was a young locum he listened and then asked when I’d last had my ‘bloods’ checked, I couldn’t remember but it’s years. HE took the ‘bloods’ and asked me to phone for the results tomorrow (Wed.), he was looking at temperal arteritis! Usual problems getting results, I persevered and a different doctor phoned back it was not T.A. relief. However the next morning (Thurs) the surgery phoned to say could I come along to give another set of ‘bloods’, my potassium is too high. After hanging up and thinking, I phoned back ‘how high’? So my previous potassium level had been 5.4 it’s now 5.5, I’ve obviously looked an the internet, I don’t think 5.4 is that briliant ****. Sorry it’s a long story but I’ve not been on for a while, I wonder why! I’ll find out tomorrow what’s going, take care folks, watch for the sneeky thing that bites you. Take care, be safe M x

Hi M, wonder what high potassium does?

Well you’ll know more tomorrow M and hope it goes ok.

Honestly though isn’t having MS enough for one person! I think once you have one thing you should be automatically excluded from getting anything else!

Nice to see you on here hon. Let us know how it goes tomorrow.

I’ve been out in the sunshine… lovely.

Hi guys, what a waste of time and energy seeing yet another different GP! 5.0 now and nothing to worry about and avoid bananas, prunes careful on orange juice. Apparently the longer it takes from when the blood is drawn until analyses the number increases. So I had a whole weekend of worry for nothing ££££, cheers guys. The weather was lovely at the weekend its COLD today! M xxx
