Illness is funny. Sometimes what the actual cause is doesn't seem to relate to the symptoms at all. In November I started with constant diarrhea and abdominal pain. By December I started to lose feeling in my hands. After the New Year the tingling and numbness spread thru both arms, legs, face and neck. After every test you can imagine they narrowed it down to two things. MS or damaged vertebrae. After a lumbar puncture this month they ruled out MS. So now I have to sit with the pain until September 12th - that's when the surgeon can see me. The pain is in my spine now (woohoo) but at least they got the diarrhea under control. Ok enough crabbing for now.
