Finally Some Answers/Health

I’ve had four Rheumatologist appointments thus far, which resulted in referrals for a Nerve Conduction Study, MRI of neck, GI Specialist for nausea & slight abdominal pain which resulted in Colonoscopy & Endoscopy, also a not so pleasurable Lip Biopsy for testing for an autoimmune disorder.

Diagnosis so far;

My  nausea & abdominal pain have been explained, I have a stomach infection named Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) it is a bacterium that causes chronic inflammation of the inner lining of the stomach (triple therapy to eradicate) which caused me to have gastritis with duodenal ulcers in my stomach.

The past six months I’ve had severe left arm weakness, numbness & tingling, pain up left arm, shoulder & hands, my MRI results showed cervical disc desiccation in the cervical discs C6-7 with bilateral disc bulging greater on the left side causing moderately severe foraminal stenosis with trapping of the left nerve root, I have been referred to a spine specialist for further recommendation.  I also have two swollen ulnar nerves (not sure why- yet) and Raynaud’s Syndrome in hands with digital ulcers being treated with Cardizem.

Still awaiting results from lip biopsy to see if Sjogrens Syndrome is the root of my health issues. Sjogren’s syndrome is an autoimmune disorder. This means that your immune system mistakenly attacks your body’s own cells and tissues.

I’m almost there; feels great to finally get significant results, Thx for your thoughts and your prayers.

      Hi Kimberly, No, they mentioned visiting the Spine Specialist and go from there. I have to get rid of stomach infection first.

        Thank you very much, trying everything to get me there. I already booked the Tower of Terror 10 mile race at WDW in October, so it’s a must, lol. Thank you, I loved your turtle video…
