  1. Decision Time

    by , 12-28-2012 at 06:19 PM (Greybeard's Brain Blog)
    Itís coming decision time. For those of you who werenít in Milwaukee just before my first DE my diplopia (double vision) started moving from the extreme periphery of my vision to the entire field. The lights in the venue were bothering me and I had a headache. I won the DE and then got set for my second DE (quarter finals.) My opponent was destroying me. I couldnít follow his movements and at 13-0 I had a shot to his chest that gave an off target light.

    I asked for a check and ...
  2. I have to wear a bag on my head from now on

    Well, I had another of my ďspecialĒ incidents. I should have known something was up when before my first DE Sunday my diplopia (which is usually on the extreme periphery of my vision field. Kind of like where my opponent sits.) had moved to encompass my whole vision field. I was also having trouble with glare from the lights. Even though my aneurysms have been stented and clipped they continue to grow. So I have an exploding head.

    I had a headache earlier in the day but it was ...
  3. The hits just keep on coming

    According to my Dr. visit this morning my whole back is arthritic and I have peripheral neuropathy. Thatís part of why I hurt all the time.

    The Doc this morning gave me a referral to the interventional radiologist who did the epidural in my neck to have another one lower in my back. I hope it works as good as the last one. He also I running tests to see if I have a B-12 deficiency or might be a closet diabetic.

    My local neurosurgeon said we could probably only ...
  4. The self diagnosis continues

    OK, the road to self-diagnosis continues. Why not see a doctor? What a clever concept. I must do that some time. Itís not that I am fishing for an LP here. I think I just want them to say itís what I have to give me an answer to why I feel like this.

    Itís just I ache all the time, my back hurts, I feel weaker, always have a headache, am always sad, the heat makes me dormant. What causes all this? It canít be stroke/aneurysm residual. Oh, a new wrinkle. Iíve had diplopia ...
  5. I just hurt.and I'm tired

    by , 09-08-2012 at 05:21 PM (Greybeard's Brain Blog)
    Another day without fencing. What the heck is wrong with me? Other than being 60 pounds overweight, every joint hurting, constant headache, this claw hand, a new Achilles injury Iím fine.

    What is wrong with me? Iím tired of being a lab rat. Iíve been scanned enough times that Iím surprised that I donít glow in the dark. The latest scans show all kinds of stenosis, pinch points and other fun stuff in my spine. I think I have enough complaints to buy the condo in Boca now. ...
