Things have been a little crazy here over the last two weeks.
I have not been feeling very well for a while now. I have had some digestive issues and pain in my lower left abdominal area and my migraines have been brutal. They happen almost every night and involve ear aches and sore throats.
Since this started when I was unemployed, I had to wait until I had health insurance and since I now do, I went to the doctors. The doctor sent me for a colonoscopy and they found that everything was hunky dory in that department so they sent me to get a pelvic ultrasound.
The pelvic ultrasound showed that I have fibroids, which I have had removed in the past. The gynecologist today said that fibroids are not causing my digestive issues and pain and he said I should have a cat scan.
It is just frustrating. It makes me think it is all in my head.
On top of this, Pumpkin went to the vet last week and because she is so young and has an advanced case of gingivitis. The vet thought to test for Bartonella , which can manifest in cats with gingivitis. It came back positive. So Eli and Bailey have to be treated with antibiotics. Me and the guy are probably going to be tested as well.
Perhaps, my crazy headaches have something to do with the Bartonella. It can’t hurt to be tested.
My Google investigation of the “stealth pathogen” does not instill good vibes in me. Just so you know Bartonella can cause a few things including cat scratch disease. God knows I have been scratched and bitten enough by my precious cats. We shall see.
Meanwhile, the gynecologist made a comment about me “losing a 100 pounds” to feel better. I know I have to lose weight. I know I need to be healthy. I just know the pain is more than weight.
