Round and Round We Go
For almost 3 weeks now I have been experiencing extreme dizziness....Dizziness to the point that I had my mother drive me to today's appointment. That is saying A LOT!
Dr. Oh did a full Neurological exam and noted that my blood pressure was LOW- 90/56 and my heart rate was HIGH- 110 (which is weird, 'cuz I had been sitting in the waiting room for a 1/2 hour)
I haven't had an MRI in almost a year, so that was the first thing to get ordered...
The Dr. asked a bunch of questions about my dizziness, but there wasn't much to tell. I have been dizzy 24/7, with periods where the dizziness gets REALLY bad.
Dr. Oh explained that my hydrocephalus wouldn't be getting "worse"...But the dizziness COULD be a symptom of a new tumor growing. *great* I am familiar with the type of tumor he was talking about, since Bailey has this going on with her.
"COULD BE THIS.....COULD BE THAT"
The answers with Neurofibromatosis are never clear. Heck, the answers with LIFE are never clear. But what IS clear, is that I am doing something. I am not just sitting by, allowing life to continue to swing at me. Even if nothing can be done....and NF takes my life, I will go knowing I did everything I could and lived a life that I can be proud of.
