The Diagnois

Saw my doctor earlier today and it’s still unclear what type of headaches I’m experiencing. Based on symptoms it could either be sinus or muscular tension headaches. So she wrote a prescription to treat both. I’m not really a big fan of medication per se, but these headaches are so intense at times, that I’m really looking toward to some relief.

Chronic

For borderline hypochondriacs like myself, the Internet is a blessing and a curse. At the slightest discomfort, we search various medical sites like WebMD trying to self diagnosis.

In any event, while getting my mouth ready to replace the temporary with the permanent crown, I needed to be injected three different times. I kept […]

After spending yet another weekend with sniffles, I knew I would need to be seen again by doctor to have some peace of mind. Particularly since my cough was so deep and starting to hurt my ribs. She listened to my lungs and nothing sounded unusual. Just to be certain, I insisted on getting a chess X-Ray done. Everything came back clean. Same for the blood sample that was drawn during my annual physical two weeks ago and tested by Laboratory Corporation of America. […]

Day In Bed

I spent most of Sunday in bed. I only left the apartment for half an hour to get some much-needed cough medicine. I spent most of day watching the History Channel. So the day was not completely wasted.
