1. Medical Stuff:

  • Knocking on wood big time BUT I think I may have turned the corner for the better with POTS. My super bendy fingers and toes are crossed tight.
  • 1 Day of PT. Graston’s Therapy on my quads.
  • 2 Days of Home Rehab.
  • 1 shrink appointment.
  • I saw Dr. Winkler on Thursday for OMM.
  • Started an antibiotic for a sinus infection.

1. Medical Stuff:

  • 1 Day of PT. I had Graston’s therapy on my shoulders and neck along with the normal exercises and cardio.
  • 2 Days of Home Rehab.
  • I had a really rough week with POTS and therefore, insomnia, which many of you know becomes a vicious cycle. I ended up at the ER last night after 7 days of no sleep and a lot of chest pain. Plus, I know by now when I am dehydrated. My meds were adjusted a bit, I was given fluids, blood work was taken, and luckily my EKG was okay. Hoping this flare will pass quickly. Fingers crossed.

1. Medical Stuff:

  • 1 Day of PT. Graston’s Therapy on my hip, quad, and IT band, plus the usual strengthening.
  • 2 Days of Home Rehab.
  • Gastroparesis flare. Back on Domperidone until it calms down.
  • 1 shrink appointment. I accidentally scheduled a half hour instead of an hour. What I learned? I need that hour…: )

Whew!

What. A. Week.  Conferences, meetings, and sickness!  But I made it through!

1.  Medical Stuff:

  • 1 day of PT.  Focus: Graston’s Treatment on my hip.
  • 2 days of Home Rehab.
  • This heat has been an adjustment for me this week.  My blood has decided that it would rather hang out in my feet than in my brain.  I’m working on this.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day, everyone!

1.  Medical Stuff:

  • 1 Day of Home Rehab.
  • I had an OMM appointment.  We focused mainly on my neck; especially an OA release.
  • 2 Days of PT~one session focused on strengthening and one session focused on Graston’s treatment.  This is a new treatment I am trying for my hip that uses six stainless steel tools of different shapes and sizes, which helps my PT break down scar tissue and fascial restrictions.
