Well I am about to tell you some not so great news!
You know about the pains in my heels, yeh?
Well I did go to the GP yesterday and explained it all.
My regular doc is on hols, so I saw a different one, I dont know so well.
She took my shoe and sock off and felt the top of my right foot and prodded it a few times.
Oh they are so cold. I cant feel any pulses
I know, they always are cold, and my legs too, I said.
Then I said ``Is it due to my immobility?`
I was gobsmacked with what she said next…
Not necessarily. Its more likely to be due to your arteries being furred up. We need to get this investigated.`
I asked what would that mean? She said;
Some people lose their legs due to this!
WTF? I exclaimed
Oh for Gods sake. My mother had that`. (not her legs off, but the desease which she mentioned).
She said she would get a district nurse to come and do a doppler test. I asked what if it there is a problem? She said I would be referred to the hospital.
I asked what if it is ok…she said they would think again.
Well, guys, I spun in a circle in my wheelie…just couldnt take it all in…how much more will happen to me?.
Only last week, I was feeling happy and accepted the fact that I have spastic paraparesis…cause unknown and defo not MS.
More crap to knock my thinking!
I got out of the surgery where hubby was waiting in the van with our Lucy and just filled up and blurted it out.
hubby said `What a thought``.
I rang my sisters and told them, we were all meeting an hour later, at the slimming club. we met earlier and i didnt feel like sitting in class, so i didnt go.
One sis came home and slept with me. We all cried.
Anyway, a district nurse has rung and said she will come on monday to do the test.
oh chuff with a capital C, eh?
