My Present health problems stem from the time I tripped when heading for the bathroom the morning of Feb:8:08 while staying at my #4 sons abode in Kurrajong, Windsor, NSW, and crunched my nut on a speeding cement wall; so it seemed.
Lots of blood-pain-ambulance-op table-x-rays-stitches and in hospital for three days. My face resembling an ancient druid, mostly several shades of blue, I then returned home.
Several days later my continuing headaches were reason for a brain scan, "Alright I heard that", The results were favourable. I then suffered lumbar pains and mobility problems until Chest pains arrived around Sept 08.
Eventually this was corrected in Gosford Hospital Dec 18:08.
Letters from the Hospital to my Local family Doctor went astray and were never recovered. my initial medication was completed after several days, no other medication was offered by our Doctor.
Around three weeks ago my headaches returned and are still with me, my local Doctor advised a brain scan Thurs May:8. The resulting scan on Frid:May:9, revealed I had had a minor stroke days earlier, this I believe was when I sat bolt upright while watching the telly the previous Sunday when I felt a sharp piercing pain enter my head.
Today the visit to the doctor went well and the picture is clearer now that I have Medication. However, a visit to the heart/vascular doc is on the cards to get more clarification of what may be happening.
Unfortunately for me the headaches continue, but I am off any form of alcohol and other fattening substances despite losing over ten kilos in the past four months by exercising more and spending less lengthy periods on this computer, also I am trying to get into the habit of walking more, Rosemary walks to the shops sometimes twice in one day fifteen Min's on each occasion, but for me the Doc , Barber, garage, and post office oh and the club just ten Min's there and back - longer when I'm stopped for a neighbourly chat.
Wed:May:13. Last night I went off to snooze with a headache-later controlled by a pain killer, I slept for seven hours. This morning at ten I popped down to the Dracula shop to have tests for diabetes cholesterol and other miscellaneous probes here and there, the one's 'there' were most irritating, I returned home with a quarter of an armful less blood than I went with. Soon after I had a late morning brekky.
I have been pottering around the garden today since it is still a beautiful day with a light breeze, temp around 20 cel and mostly sunny. My headaches or should I say headache has been around all day but not too severe today. I am uncertain what speed I reached from the bottom of the garden to our lower bathroom about midday, the immense relief I experienced may have triggered the pain lowering factor in my cranium, and it appears I have lost a kilo since Tuesday which is hardly surprising.
I shall be very busy both Thursday and Friday so blogging time will be at a premium, however, I shall make some sort of effort to fulfil my obligations.
Hopefully there will be better days (ahead).
Join you again soon.
