Went in for my MRI this morning. The thing worked! Thank goodness. And only 45 min - I thought it would be longer. I did replot my book (for revisions) all in my head so at least I got somethig done. Right?
Good news: MRi was normal. Brain and ears are normal. Except maybe I am a bit crazy. who knows.
Weird news: They found out I am having hypo-tension. When I stand up, my blood pressure is dropping. I am at 120/70 until I stand up - then I am about 100/50.
Why my Dr or ENT ever thought to take my blood pressure when I was sitting vs when I was standing is beyond me. Especially seeing as I told them i get dizzy more when I am standing vs sitting.
Diagnosis? They do not think it is my ear and probably ever was my ear? Who knows if it was or not. All I know is I am frustrated with the medical systems and doctors I have been seeing.
Now? I have I have been recommended to see a cardiologist. So here is my journey:
Now - on to the Cardiologist
My goal? To see every "ologist" there is and maybe even write a book about them?
What do you think? I'm thinking big seller?
This is all very frustrating.
Tomorrow I will give the stats on the contest and throw in some marketing tips. We'll be back to your regularly scheduled blogs starting Monday :)
Thanks for reading my digressions.
Fun things to do with MRI scans of your brain:
- search through them with a 5 year old, looking for funny faces
- compare them to science pictures and guess the different parts of your head
- laugh at your bulging eyeballs
- cut them up and tape them onto sticks for a Play about Brains
- trace them on paper and color them
Just think what we can do with the heart scans!
If you think of any others, let me know.
