About Me: Female, 82, Albany, OR, member since Jan 2016
Hobbies are quilting, music. I am a Veteran. Served in the Air Force in the 1950's in an all women AF Band known as The USAF WAF Band. Now play with the Willamette Valley Concert Band in Albany OR. I try to eat healthy and exercise. I just had my very first Kidney
[More] stone which was infected and was admitted to the hospital where a stent was put in to bypass the kidney until the infection was under control. It was then removed by laser. The stone was analyzed as an oxalate stone so am needing to watch the foods with oxalates in them. I've had migraines ever since I was a child but they were not diagnosed as such until my adult years. Saw a migraine specialist a few years ago and was prescribed V-B12 shots which have working great. My present PC physician wants to change this and I feel why try to fix something when it isn't broken. I'm taking several vitamin supplements and would like to cut them back as they aren't covered by insurance and the Vitamin B-12 shots are. I've presently been on a new regimen for the shots of every three weeks versus the every two weeks I was on and I'm noticing some changes like less energy and my migraines are coming back after the two weeks. Trying to find out about Vitamin B-12 and the levels for people who have migraines.
