Too Tall?

It's the big day.  Neuro followup visit.

I have a huge packet of forms for them to fax to Aetna.  Gannett insists I apply for longterm coverage.  Apparently, they--and only they--get to decide whether or not I retire.

Here is my list of observances.  I hate to call them complaints:

  • half deaf, left side; tinnitus right side
  • numbness up to knees, but some feeling in toes
  • clumsy hands
  • nap every afternoon, but poor sleep at night
  • no strength in arms.  Just enough to pick up the baby!
  • poor balance.  I feel "too tall" for my height, for goodness sakes.
  • forgetful and stupid
  • too tired to walk more than 20 mins
  • can't style hair (hair or arms?  your call)
  • incontinent
Let's see how it all shakes out.

I've had that "too tall" feeling before. LOL.

The neuro was floored by that one. He never heard anyone say it before. My guess is it's just balance, but he just laughed.

I started on Prokarin this past Monday. I feel great today. The pain in my left leg is bearable, still numb, although I slept great last night! Cancelled my spinal tap for this Monday. Just want to see how the Prokarin works.
