I have such a mix of feelings today. I'm proud of myself for losing what weight I've lost and for watching everything that goes in my mouth and for stepping up in exercise....but....
don't know if it is the heat as we have had a high temp of 106 today..We ran a fan outside for our outside dog yesterday but today we put them in the laundry room which has a/c..poor things are suffering.
Don't know if it is because I'm not sleeping well (also probably due to the heat)
My back has hurt an unusual amount lately..and I put up 22 pints of tomatoes today which aggravated it more..
Or more likely the things I'm feeling is due to the medical test reports. I've had a bad liver count for 2 years now. About 4 years ago the doctors tried to put me on meds for cholesterol and I had very very bad leg pains but my liver counts were ok then..and I went off the meds then. I have been on priolsec for year due to ulcer and acid reflux from too many rhumitoid meds I've taken over the years..Well 2 years ago I had a terrible time with my stomach and they tested my liver functions and it was way off..they did ultrasound to check the gall bladder and liver and thankfully no gall stones but that might have been better to have had rather than an enlarged liver..was told it was probably just a fatty liver from being overweight..well in the meantime they changed my BP meds and failed to notice that it had a diuretic in it which causes a terrible cough in me. so coughed for a solid 2 years..just got that taken care of by having them change the BP meds back to the dose without the diuretic and my cough has disappeared..but when I went to the clinic last week to get the BP meds changed, they decided to run another liver and cholesterol panel..well cholesterol is up and the liver functions are up...and this is after losing this 20lbs..I'm so upset over this..I go back in next Thursday and know they will set up another ultra sound..which know it will show the same thing...not sure there is much they can do for the liver..I'm wondering now if I need to get off the prilosec..I asked them before about it but they say no stay on it..but know most meds go through your liver and are processed there..I do know too that if I do get off the prilosec that I will get terrible acid reflux and won't be able to eat until my stomach gets back somewhat to normal..I guess I would lose more weight that way..I'm really just weeping over this..thought if I lost weight and got more exercise I would begin to see a difference in my health and instead it has gotten worse..
