Just a "zebra" trying my best to live life to the fullest with EDS and POTS...and loving the ride.

1. Medical Stuff:

  • Back to the eye doctor. Back on antibiotic drops. What the heck? Why won’t this infection go AWAY?
  • 1 Day of PT. Strengthening, stim, and OMM.
  • 2 Days of Home Rehab.
  • 1 Infusion. Thank goodness I have access to this treatment for POTS.

1. Medical Stuff:

  • 1 Day of PT. Cardio. Since my left trap was super sore, we skipped strengthening and I did stim and heat on that area before my PT worked on me.
  • 1 Day of Home Rehab. The usual.
  • I had two different OMM appointments; one on Tuesday, and one on Friday. Both docs did cranial, and worked on my TMJ and neck pain. On Friday, I got two trigger point injections which has helped quite a bit so far to interrupt the flare. Knock on wood!

1. Medical Stuff:

  • 1 Day of PT. Elliptical and bike. OMM, stim, and heat. We were trying to get my first ribs and neck to calm down. They have not been happy campers this week.
  • 1 Day of Home Rehab. Treadmill and floor strengthening. I skipped arms with light weights since I have been pretty flared.
  • I saw my primary care doc on Monday to go over my blood test results. Good news: He used the word “normal.” I’m not used to that word. ;) He also gave me an antibiotic and steroid shot for a sinus infection that’s currently kicking my booty.
  • I also saw the ENT for the first time. I really liked him. I was referred to him to get my deviated septum checked out. From his exam, he doesn’t think it’s necessary for him to do surgery. I am going to try flonase and zyrtec combined with my singulair and advair in hopes that I begin to breathe better. Very happy I do not have surgery in the near future. Yesssss.
