Dr appointment

So today I finally broke down and went to the doctor. For some time now I have had some “episodes”. My legs will turn red and feel like they are on fire, you can feel it through my pants and if I have shorts on you can just see the sweat (odd I know). Drives my husband batty because I can’t lay too close to him I am that hot. Well along with the my right leg hip to toes feels numb my toes will tingle and the Charlie horses are embarrassing and uncomfortable. My right arm has been acting weird like if when you lift weights and your muscles feel tight…well I have not lifted in almost 2 years so it’s not from that. I was having a hard time trying to get my hands to work on Tuesday I kept fumbling trying to hold even a pen. The right side of my cheek was tingly numb for almost 5 days, the back of my neck hurts and I am extremely tired with episodes of vertigo. It usually starts with one symptom and will increase to more but usually goes away well this one has lasted longer than any other time.

My mom suggested I get tested for MS so I am waiting for prior authorization from my insurance to get that set up. My dad wants me to be tested for Lyme disease and a hereditary disease he has called brachialplexopothy it is dominate in brown eye males in my family. So fingers crossed I am just old and over weight!!

Well diet today…crab salad and brats not too bad but sure as hell not Keto! Ruger has a birthday so he got peanut butter frosty paws and a new bone tonight!!

First blog

Hello! My name is Melony bare with me this is my first blog. A little about me, I am in my 40’s (that’s all you need to know lol). I am a newlywed, our one year anniversary is coming up in August. I have 3 kids, 3 step kids, 3 grandkids and a big baby Rottweiler. I will be blogging about remodeling our house, “remodeling” my body and health and general everyday randomness.

About my house, it is a older house with good bones but it is not the 60’s anymore so we are updating and doing it ourselves. So that has been less than enjoyable at times. I’ve learned a lot…like using a power sander is very messy and put Ruger (our Rottweiler) in his kennel while painting!! More about the house later…

About my body and health, I am roller coaster of weight loss and gain. I have gained 30 since we got married in August, but I am not alone so has my husband. So we are going to try different diets out, we’ve done the gym and protein shakes without success so we will see what our next diet adventure is. As far as my health, I have ADD, OCD and anxiety so that is always an adventure. I will try to blog everyday about something. Thanks for understanding I am a newbie and have a good day!
