I have had a couple times where I laugh so hard I black out. These last couple weeks I have had no energy and some tingling in my arms and head. So, today I bit the bullet. Time to get to the root of the problem.
In the last couple weeks I have EXPONENTIALLY increased my water intake. That helped today. Today they wanted to draw blood. The test results from that showed nothing, but my doctor is still worried about a possible heart blockage or brain blockage with my shunt. I have a tube in my brain that drains away excess fluid around my brain.
When we don’t feel bad, but we don’t feel quite right we need to seek medical attention to get to the root of the issue. Our bodies are designed to tell us something is wrong when we don’t feel in top physical condition. We are designed to be strong, but sometimes our bodies can break down. And we must listen to those signs.
I am glad I did today. We don’t have a root cause of the issues, but we know they are there. My blood pressure is a roller coaster, interestingly enough. My doctor said that can cause some of my symptoms, but it is not the root cause. So, it’s back tomorrow for a couple more tests to find out if there is a blockage somewhere between my head and my heart. Funny, huh? I often speak of keeping our heads and hearts alligned with God. And today I find out there may be a road block causing my head and heart to not operate at full capacity. I hope that is the root of the problem and they fix it and it doesn’t escalate into other things. I am ready to feel alive and energetic again, that is the root of who I wish to be!!
