I went to see my GP today. I really like him, but I know he thinks I'm a hypochondriac. He is a friend....and honestly he's a really nice guy. He is never rude to me or anything, but he has always made it pretty clear that he believes I *am* healthy and that I would feel much better if I were to be less stressed, exercise more, etc.
I went in today because for the past few weeks, I have felt something below my ribcage on the left side. It doesn't hurt, it just feels a little uncomfortable. I compare it to being 9 months pregnant and having a little baby foot positioned there. It's weird.
Plus, I figured I would mention the vertigo, fingernail changes, consistent low-grade fever (as opposed to just a few times a week), and the lovely yeast infection I am enjoying. (ha!ha!)
He did that little finger tap thing all around my belly and said I was full of gas. He demonstrated the difference in sound when he tapped my liver, my lungs, then my stomach. He believes that could be what I'm feeling. My stomach being full of gas like that would press up on my diaphragm. To make sure, though, I had some blood work done. He said he will call me tomorrow with the results.
Meanwhile, I'm on diflucan for 7 days and he wants me to try to go off (or at least cut back) the adderall. I am supposed to relax and see if I feel better.
We shall see. I'm still confused, but seriously starting to wonder if I've been making myself sicker than I really am. I mean...no tests have shown anything wrong with me. Am I crazy? Too much of a stress case?
I don't know. I don't think that's really it, but I have no proof.
Goodnight, my friends. I'm off to go check up on your blogs! xoxoxo
