Apart from that, everything is fine.

We have just got back from the specialist. There are a lot of things going on with my body. It is baffling quite a few people at this stage.

So my symptoms are clicking ribs (possibly fractures), decreased mobility, lethargy, peripheral neuropathy (in this case, sensation of feet feeling hot, but really they are normal temp), aching muscles, hair rapidly falling out in the last week and sleep deprivation. The rib pain has been the most debilitating. I have been confined to the house really since yesterday morning until I went to the hospital today.

My bone density results I had a month or so showed that I have osteoporosis. I am in the lowest 26th percentile of people my age for bone density. It doesn’t really explain my pelvis fractures and usually this would occur in the lower 5th percentile. It may explain my rib fractures. So I will be put on a drug after another scan this week. It is usually given to people once a year but I will be having it every three months.

I will be re-staged next week. This will involve a full body MRI and another biopsy. I had bloods done today. I am also now on stronger painkillers. I think they have kicked in now so I am feeling very nice thank you. Things are moving pretty rapidly now so we are pretty happy with the way things are going.

Talk more when the pink elephants get out of my living room.
