I've got really significant abdominal problems at the moment. My abdomen is swollen and really uncomfortable and I feel really nauseous. It feels totally wrong and I feel really not right in general. I saw my GP on Monday to sort out my prescriptions but he picked up that I didn't seem myself so I said I really wasn't feeling well and ended up explaining that I was feeling sick and my abdomen was sore etc. He examined me and has taken me off all my deficiencies meds for a week to see whether they're causing the problem and I see him again next Friday. So far not taking the tablets hasn't really helped. He also noticed my weakness when I was trying to sit up after lying down for the examination- he was shocked and said it was a real eye-opener for him; he seemed genuinely concerned. He asked whether my consultant was aware and I said that I'd mentioned my weakness in the past but think that I'm often misinterpreted as meaning weakness as in tiredness, when I really mean true significant loss of strength. I opened up and explained that nothing seemed right recently and I seemed to have so many new symptoms and so much seemed worse and there didn't seem to be an obvious explanation- I think he could totally see where I was coming from. Hopefully between me, him and my consultants we'll work something out.. It certainly feels to me like we're missing something.
I've got physio tomorrow and haven't been able to do any hand exercises for nearly 2 weeks now because my hands have simply been too painful, so I'm expecting very little, if any, progress.
