I've been very tired lately...

GI what??

Ever since I've gotten back from Parris Island, my energy levels has been run down. It started off with a frontal sinus infection, and an extremely sore throat with tender glands. So, I went to dr. complaining about my throat, and they tested me for mono, strep, the flu-- the usuals. Those all came up negative. They did a basic complete blood count, and that looked normal. So, then this past weekend, I went back with chest pain. Here I am thinking that I have bronchitis or something since I didn't have a productive cough, and immediately they think that it is my heart. Granted, I had bradycardia back in 2007 after having Miss K, and with that they were worried. My EKG came out normal, and so did the chest xray. So, then they figured that I was having acid reflux. I had an ah ha moment. Yesterday was my ears, nose, and throat appointment with the ENT. He wants to do extensive blood work, and see if I have any autoimmune disease that is making me feeling so cloudy brained, and exhausted. He is going to look for mono, (not the rapid test that was done previously) Lupus, and Lyme disease. Lovely, right?

Although in my head, I need to see the GI specialist because it is obvious I am having some gastro problems  I've ignored for the past few years. When my gallbladder was removed, I assumed that certain things that have been occuring were normal since being removed. Apparently, that may not be the case. So, hopefully I will find out some answers soon. Right now, I get to take my generic Zantac, and hope that stops any more damage the acid is doing to my already raw throat.

In other news...
