I felt ok- ish all day today-sitting in the garden enjoying the sunshine with my dogs actually sleeping! then tonight I feel my whole body getting worse-it seems everywhere is now lumpy and sore to touch all around my stomach and now radiating to the back of my shoulders.
(I listened to my DR the other day and had to really concentrate on what he was saying to me and then he said I wasn't saying much to which I replied my minds struggling to take in what you are telling me so I didn't say half of what I should have.i have now written things down fro my next appt which is after I have seen both consultants btu I keep adding to it or changing it every so often.)
I got ready for bed washing at the sink as I cannot get in or out of my bath to have a shower-and everywhere felt tender and lumpy.its like its spreading all over my upper body. and I notice it as soonas I get into bed and how uncomfortable it is.
after seeing my DR and him talking to me and saying that my swollen abdomen is bloating I supposed I should accept thats what it is and then I remember what my friend and neighbour and another friend said.they both knew the lady who passed away from cancer which wasn't detected and another who had a 22lb cyst removed that was not detected in scans plus all the other stories I have read.. this unconvinces me it is bloating.
also he told me that my BMI classed me as obese which I disagreed with as he only knows my total body weight from weighing me.the scales don't show that I have gained weight in my abdomen and lost weight everywhere else.i said the same to the rheumatologist .how can I lose weight when I don't eat cakes biscuits puds etc and have cut out fried foods and only eat a small meal at lunch time with cereal in morning and evening.I am only a size 12-14 (everywhere except my stomach)so don't class myself as even slightest bit fat.it is only my swollen stomach whatever the cause that is why my weight is more and if it is bloating surely there must be something nhs can do?
