Sir i did go back to sleep thank god and slept another aprox 3 hours so i slept aprox 3-4 before that si i have at least 6 hours total that i slept but i doubt i will volenteer today due to my hip.I will see if it gets better.Whenever you are available to do this discusion please let me know.I do thank you very very much for opening up the discsuion when i needed to talk but my pain was so bad and i hadnt slept well so i am glad i was able to sleep more.I stilll havent used the gabelye yet but i am having abdominal pain so i may use it later today if i dont feel better sir,i am trying to hold off on it.

I weighed 125 this morning sir when i woke.I have always weighed every morning for many many years to monitor my weight but sir i will be honest over the last 3 days that i said i would eat no more than 1600 i only did that the first day.Sir i was in alot of pain in my hip and you know i do try to block my feelings with food .I am glad they ARE DOING THE MRI TO SEE IF THERE ARE CHANGES. my APPITITE GOT EXTREMLY WORSE AND MY ENERGY LEVEL GOT LOWER AROUND the same time they cut my thyroid med to 150mcg.I stated before i have NEVER BEEN ON 150MCG IN OVER 30 YEARS EXCEPT A SHORT WHILE POSSIBLY JUST A MONTH.I do not know the cause of why i felt a change in my energy or appitite but the lowered dose of thyroid med could be it,

I had a bad few days like the worst i have had in a long time sir so hopefully i can try to be stricter on my food intake,I am very glad i slept more but with my abdominal pain and hip pain i definelty will not volenteer today.i can honestly say since last friday awaiting the outcome of wondering if the test was gong to be scheduled was the worse 3 days i have had i a long time.I would not lie about the hard impact i got to my head when the suv door accidently slammed into my head sir.It was very hard so I WAS VERY WORRRIED THEY HAD DECIDED NOT TO DO BECAUSE CONCUSIONS DO NOT ALWAYS SHOW UP ON MRIs but sir i told you i have a speenoid malighment and i looked online and speenoid malignment can cause personality changes as well as headaches and with the impact of the door on my head i am surprised i didnt get a HUGE ROUND KNOT ON MY HEAD.also you know how the vessels and arteries in my legs are worse so my chronic vessel ishemia could be worsening,
Customer: replied 9 months ago.
all i know is if the mri is normal then it could be the thyroid med but i doubt my endo doctor will readjust my thyroid because she will want to keep my tsh higher.My tsh level has stayed at aprox 0.1 since my cancer was removed to keep the thryoid cancer from returning but since i have been cancer free for over many years she will proby keep tsh higher plus she does not do a thyroid panel on labs on tsh only and the cancer check thyroglobin every year so she doesnt care to do a t3 which is a ALWAYS BELOW NORMAL
Customer: replied 9 months ago.
Also my pain level is better now but i know i must rest sir and i will.I do not need to sleep more right now but i know i need to take more days off volentering until my feet and hip feel better.
Customer: replied 9 months ago.

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
Enjoy your morning sir and i know i need to rest and let God speak to me sir.The bible verse BE STILL AND KNOW THAT I AM GOD.I DO KNOW GOD WANTS TO TRY TO SPEAK WITH ME SIR.God bless you for your patience with me the last 3 days and always
Customer: replied 9 months ago.

OKay sir i had the new hip injury sunday and sunday evening my left leg was numbish like tinging and 2 -3 times my foot on that surgerical leg in the morning started to go into contraction again,i was getting up to use the bathroom and it stated a few seconds like ten i knew to get up and place foot on floor which made the contraction go away within aprox less than a minute,i had to do it 3 times within maybe 30 minute period,i still think the stressful event that occured the day before my last severe contraction might be the casue of this contraction i dont know.i know i injured my hip and the blood supply isnt good in that leg sir so it might have caused the contractions again,the last time i had the contractions they lasted uncontrollably over possibly 3-4 minutes i was abli to stop them by placing my foot down hard on the floor sir and it stoped with maybirer a minutte or less
Customer: replied 9 months ago.
