As the title suggests, I have had a very naughty breast. A naughty boob!
A breast that made me go to the doctor who referred me to the hospital for me to see the specialist.
The breast has changed. Got a lot more thicker and more lumpy, sore and had the odd discharge. Doctor wasn’t sure why so yesterday, after about two or three weeks of waiting for the referral appointment and allsorts going through my mind, I had that appointment.
Nervous, me? Definitely. However what will be will be.
The specialist/consultant, whatever he is known as, was a very nice man. Could see where I was coming from and sent me for an ultrasound. No hanging around, made me a little more nervous and fearful of the outcome.
Ultrasound done, went straight back to the room where I was examined. Didn’t have to wait long to find out the results.
Nothing sinister found. He told me to make sure that I check my breasts every month without fail. He could not tell me why my breast was so different to the other. Apparently it can just happen for no reason but I need to make sure that I keep checking it regularly, as well as checking the other one.
While I am discussing health issues, the other stuff that I have posted about is just being ignored for now. I have no severe symptoms and I can lead a relatively normal life whatever is going on.
So all is good in my life.
I hope now that all of this is out of the way, I can have fun with my little family and get back to blogging again. I have missed being a blogger.
There is always something wrong with me it would seem but I can’t work out whether it is all in my head or whether there is something physically wrong.
The latest thing was that both my legs from my knees to my ankles have been tingling for the past 5 days. I telephoned the doctor who said that I should just keep an eye on things and come in if it gets worse. It got worse on Saturday so I went to primary care who said that it isn’t anything to do with previous back issues and could be all to do with an autoimmune issue. I have had a few things to suggest that there is an autoimmune thing wrong with me. I have spots for example and apparently my rheumatoid factor is 18.1. I apparently do not have rheumatoid arthritis though as they checked that.
The doctor at primary care told me to make an appointment on Monday as it was important for me to get checked out. Waste of my time. I have been and they think it isn’t what the doctor at primary care suggested it would me, the spots are nothing and the rheumatoid factor shouldn’t be worried about.
So I am at a loss. I really don’t know what to do apart from just give up.
Another thing that is wrong with me is that I do get stressed too easily. I know this for a fact. I am seeing the mental health person at the doctors shortly. I am dreading it as I feel perfectly sane but stressed. I used to have depression but I don’t think I do now. I am just naturally stressed.
I really can’t be imagining all this can I? Really?!
Why is my rheumatoid factor 18.1? Why do I have these spots? Another doctor said to me when I showed him “Unless I have an autoimmune disorder then he doesn’t know what is causing these spots. These spots are all over my arms and are starting to show on my chest and legs. The majority of them are on my arms. OK they are not covering my arms but they are increasing.
Really don’t know what to do. Any suggestions?
I can’t get a decent photo of them, I now have a few of the bigger red spots but if you look closely I have red pimprick dots. They don’t look very red but they are. Ignore stretchmarks!
