Seems like every single time I turn around something else has to come along to piss on me!!!

My doctor’s office called this morning.  My cholesterol is still too high.  I was put on a low dose Statin drug a few months ago – against my will – and it has done NOTHING to lower my LDL.  Oh, but the side effects worked just fine!  My muscle pain has gotten a whole lot worse!!

Dammit!  I knew this would happen!  I want to try the Red Yeast Rice for three months to see if it works better – BECAUSE IT DOESN’T HAVE HARMFUL SIDE EFFECTS!!!  But, I doubt my doctor will be willing to let me try it.  

What’s worse, I was told my platelets are real low, too.  What the heck?  What is causing that?  The meds?  A new illness? Can Fibromyalgia cause it?   I don’t know and no one will tell me until I see the doctor in TWO WEEKS!!!

I Googled it – something I probably shouldn’t have done – and the first thing that pops up on the screen is LEUKEMIA, LUPUS AND HIV!!!  

Of course I’m scared to death, now!!  I DON’T NEED THIS!!!!!!

With this news, I doubt very much that my new Vascular Dr. will be willing to do the Ablation Surgery on my legs, too!  

Some days I just want to crawl into a damn hole and stay there!!!!

One thing I learned a long time ago – NEVER resort to Google to try and figure anything out! All it does is scare you unnecessarily. 🙁 I am praying for you, sweetie. I’m so sorry you’re having to deal with this! ((BIG HUGS))

Oh I am so sorry that you are going through this! How cruel to make you wait 2 weeks to get some answers. *hugs*

I have Fibromyalgia too… it’s the pits. I’m in the middle of a flare right now and my legs are unbelievably painful these days. Take care and thanks for noting my diary!

🙁 I’m sorry.

Drugs “against your will”? What part of “no” didn’t those docs understand?

Never, every google your symptoms. According to Google I was near death dozens of times and even should’ve died by now according to what comes up. things will work out. My diet changes brought my high cholesterol from a 250 to 60 in 3 months at the time. But of course its not in everyone to eat like a rabbit 🙂
