  We used to do this weekly and I am trying it again...we have a diff thread for each day of the week....

  My rant this week would be about my EDS dislocations...my middle finger on my right had dislocated the other day, only I was unaware that is what happened at first...I thought I jammed my finger while hiking up my pants...lol....and later could not do a thing with my right hand, not even lift a glass....my finger hurt so bad...finally the chiari fog cleared and I figured it might be a dislocation and I grabbed hold of the finger and pulled till it popped...what a relief...it was sore for quite a while afterward...and I hope I don't forget how that felt and know to pull my finger sooner...lol....

Same thing has been happening to me. It's difficult to study because of the head/back/neck aches and concentration problems. so annoying! I usually just sit in bed when i'm not in class or getting groceries. what a great college experience! :/

  I have been doing a bit of research and feel my issue may be low levels of magnesium....I posted some of the symptoms in ChiariWolfs thread.....

I thought since this started with the change of the seasons that it was weather related, but now I think it is the magnesium....as I was already suspecting it for another issue I was having with vitamin D.....

I am wanting to rant about Monday today because I had a up and down Monday.  I did really well this morning with the sun shining and a nice walk with my cousin.  Then by this evening I have had such a mirgraine HA that it has made me sick to my stomach.  It's awful to feel this way.  Oh,  but then I am reasurred.  "It's only because it is Monday".  Tomorrow has to be a better day.  Good day's.  Bad day's.  I just want an alright day.

My Monday rant:
I want to go to a health care provider and have someone actually care that I am suffering and that my quality of life ***** and that the people I love are suffering because of it!
I am sick of feeling like I am in court instead of a doctors office. I am not asking for pain pills, why would I make this up?
And for God's sake.. SLOW DOWN...I know time is money and you want to see as many patients as possible but I have to tell Ms. Nurse, no matter how fast you walk down the hall or ask me questions I can only go as fast as I can, and think as fast as I can.

  This week I will rant about something I have no control over...time, it is going way too fast, b4 I know it it will be spring, how can I get ready for Christmas at this rate....lol...????
1667208 tn?1333107849
I agree.. time goes way too fast especially when you are approaching Christmas!  Especially when you have to add in the days you don't feel well, I think that is just an added bonus with our time going too fast!

  U could be right...I plan to do this and that and lose days here and there and b4 I know it I am plum out of time...lol....it just goes too fast, I can 't seam to get my family to help me start sooner, they look at me like I am crazy and say there is enuff time...except to try and do it in the time frame they do things is way too much for me and I can't get it done.....

  I hear u on that one, do u have meds for GERD?....it is best to take 1 hr b4  u r going to eat something u know will cause ur GERD to flare up...

or take it right after u r done eating.....

  Elevate the head of ur bed, it can help.....and remember moderation.

  This week's rant...hmmmm.....well I guess it will have to be holiday shopping is upon us and I hate to go to the mall  or the stores....I will be making gifts again this yr....

  Anyone else hate shopping as much as I do?
1903798 tn?1333905288
My rant is about the rude neuro office here in kc that did not want to answer any of my questions ... I know Gods way to push me to specialist ... And having to wait for answers.  I am a total type a and I need all the details.
1903798 tn?1333905288
Oh and your so called friends that don't even call after they find out something is wrong...
1667208 tn?1333107849
I must admit that I like to shop if I can go on quiet days and just poke around and find the "right" thing!  I hate shopping for something I can't find or for just the need of having a gift!  Shopping is much harder now that driving bothers me so some days I have a headache before I even get where I am going.  Then looking around really completes the headache.  I look forward to a day when my head wants to behave!  
1755089 tn?1376053555
I hate shoping! Most likely clothing. My hubby as a Chrismas party and its ''mendatory'' to attend! And I need to find something to wear. I hope its one of my good evening and I wont forget to bring my ears plugs because of the music.

I want to rant against my compresive stoking. They cut my ankles and knees and they slide down my thight!!!!

  Well I hate crowds and admit if I can get in and get out I am happy, but that does not happen all that often  and the other issue besides all the walking is the florescent lights.....If I didn't have a HA going in, I get one as soon as I am in the store....
