I'm a Christian lady, married to a wonderful, quickly aging man who's paraplegic (>40 yrs in wheelchair). We have a lovely 25 yr old daughter who had severe ulcerative colitis requiring a colectomy with j-pouch at age 16. I have a hx of carcenoid tumor in my appendix
[More] and post trauma pancreas resection and spleanectomy. Lately I'm aging quickly also! (wonder why??) LOL! I do have a good sense of humor and enjoy a healthy dash of idealism. This idealism has recently found enemy with insomnia, lucid dreams and a muscle type pain in a small (4-6 cm) area in my right pectorial (upper/outer breast area...deep) area and sometimes the same type pain in the same size area in the left upper back (deep also). It's specific... the type you can put your finger directly on. I've been a registered nurse since 1990. "Physician heal thyself?" No Way!! When it's personal...a professional can't see a problem as clearly. Diagnoses get fogged by too much personal knowledge.
