***ANOTHER UPDATE - Thursday 21st May***
So I went for an initial blood pressure check at my doctors as requested by my optician. It was quite high (erm oops). Might be just worry, who knows. They might check it again tomorrow. Got weighed. 4 and a half stone lighter.
Also I have a worrying large lump (just below my rib-cage), I asked if this was relative to my vomiting. Immediately the doctor gave me a body check. He is guessing (for now) it may be that my liver may have slipped down, below my rib-cage. So he suggests I get a scan done of my belly to see what exactly is happening to my insides. Will be waiting a week for that.
Tomorrow morning will consist of providing a sample (coughs), and blood tests. As the doctor stated, find out what is ok and not ok to deduce a cause. This is now escalating. Sheesh! As I pointed out to the doctor I have not drinked alcohol in 6 years, and cannot be a factor of liver situation.
And I just wanted to get specs to see! We shall see what happens.
***UPDATE - Tuesday 19th May***
Hi, me again
Thanks for all your kind words.
I got my eyes checked yesterday at the optician, and they are slightly out in both. According to my optician it is not that bad but I need both distance and reading spectacles to correct this. So next week I will be sporting new spectacles. The optician also pointed out a slight burst blood vessel at the back of my left eye. So I will get a blood pressure check and stuff by my doctor on Thurs/Fri.
I was also worried they would spot something else, like possible diabetes, brain tumour, etc. which they can do these days, but was all clear. Phew!
Yet again, thanks for all your well wishes. I was crapping it, BIG TIME.
*** Sunday 17th May ***
Over the past months I have randomly had several wee headaches, which I never worried about. But recently they have developed into painful migraine attacks that can last for several days. And being that I am nearly 45 years old, my family suggested I get my eyesight checked. So I have requested an appointment next week with an optician. As you can see, judging by my lack of recent gallery submissions, I have produced hardly any artwork.
Over several months my eating habit had changed so much, that I had lost 4 stone (56lb) in weight. Losing weight is great but during periods of time of migraines/nausea/sense of smell going wonky/etc. it was brutal. So hopefully the optician can be a good step in the right direction.
Please wish me luck!
Keep well and good.
