I recently read an article from an O.C lady who mentioned that she experienced the sensation of butterflies in her tummy and she believed it to be a symptom of her o.c. Well lo and behold I've had them too, not just in my tummy but they would travel , mimicking a shiver , down both arms and legs and sometimes in my neck..I used to find them so bizarre , really strange , and would occur for no reason.I did mention them to several docs but I believe they thought I was kinda cuckoo, but they are strange happenings and very hard to describe to anyone medical. Not the same as the butterflies I used to get as a lovestruck teenager mind, they did have a reason , and I'm still married to him., but kind of similar.
Then they disappeared for months ,after surgery and chemo but then appeared again in November last year , and guess what ? so has my o.c. in the shape of an enlarged lymph gland in my right groin./pelvis
To me, apart from new pains I was having ,this was an indicator that something was creeping back into my life . Scans and bloods showed recurrance . So I was wondering , apart from myself and this other lady , has anyone else experienced these weird happenings , or any other similarities that makes them think hmmmm?....
I hope everyone is having a good day , I'm having a crap one . I'm away for fourth and last blast of radiotherapy this afternoon , once I'm there I will be fine when I see how many poorly folk there is who are worse than me.
P.S" Butterflies and Whispers" is the title of the book I am writing of my journey through o.c xxx
