Ballseye’s boomers bubble brain blues – i got em (updated- no i do not have an aneurysm escoliosis dorsal derecha!)

GOOD NEWS: WENT TO DOC AGAIN TODAY FOR MY BP, TO DISCUSS THE ANEURYSM AND TO GET A RECOMMENDATION FOR escoliosis dorsal derecha A NEUROSURGEON. THE DOC I SAW ORIGINALLY, WHO’S NURSE TOLD ME I HAD AN ANEURYSM WAS OUT escoliosis dorsal derecha SO I SAW ANOTHER. SHE TOLD ME THERE IS NO ANEURYSM! SHE SHOWED ME THE CTA REPORT – NO EVIDENCE OF AN ANEURYSM! SHE GAVE ME UPDATED PRESCRIPTIONS FOR MY BP MEDS WHICH escoliosis dorsal derecha OTHER DOC HAD REALLY SCREWED UP! I LEFT QUITE HAPPY BUT BEFORE LEAVING THEIR OFFICE, I ASKED TO SPEAK TO THE NURSE WHO GAVE ME escoliosis dorsal derecha THE WRONG INFO (AND REMEMBER SHE SAID THE DOC SAID THERE WAS DEFINITELY escoliosis dorsal derecha AN ANEURYSM BUT HE CONSULTED WITHA CARDIOLOGIST WHO SAID TO escoliosis dorsal derecha DO NOTHING. WELL, THE NURSE WAS CONVENIENTKY TOO BIUSY TO SEE, THE RECEPTIONIST TOLD ME SHE IS DOING EXTRA DUTY OF escoliosis dorsal derecha PATIENT NOTIFICATION THAT DOC NORMALLY DOES WHEN THERE. MAYBE SHE MIXED UP RECORDS! I FEEL SORRY FOR ANYONE THEY MAY HAVE GIVEN MY escoliosis dorsal derecha RESUKLTS TO MISTAKENLY, MAYBE SOMEONE WITH AN ANEURYSM ON THE AORTA.

A few months back I had a couple incidents of escoliosis dorsal derecha losing my balance, did not think much of it since I have neuropathy escoliosis dorsal derecha from radiation treatments back when I had throat cancer. Then I started to have some vision problems, I was seeing white flashes of light but only when escoliosis dorsal derecha on my using my laptop. I had at first thought it was from the laptop escoliosis dorsal derecha but after it happening several times I realized it was escoliosis dorsal derecha my eyes. Then I started to get infrequent headaches, again something I have had before and I figured or escoliosis dorsal derecha should say hoped they were from me getting and achy escoliosis dorsal derecha and stiff neck at times also due to radiation treatments escoliosis dorsal derecha from way back when. Thing was these were different, more like ones I had in 2016 when I was escoliosis dorsal derecha diagnosed as having had cerebral ischemia that being in the escoliosis dorsal derecha form of a transient ischemic attack (TIA or mini-stroke) and as having cerebral infarction (necrotic brain tissue due to a stroke) – both things considered minor at the time – just pain the the arse stuff (or should I say pain in the neck & head).

When I drove down to AR in june, I saw what amounts to visions – no not like demons or gods – of auras colored around the edges floating in my field escoliosis dorsal derecha of view; this with both eyes open, or one or the other closed or even when both escoliosis dorsal derecha were closed. This concerned me but it all went away and I escoliosis dorsal derecha figured maybe it was due to the stress of getting escoliosis dorsal derecha separated, leaving other family behind, selling the house, moving to AR and on and on. Thing is it all came back maybe weeks or a escoliosis dorsal derecha month later except for the balance loss. Headaches were and remain much worse this time around.

I went to see a family or general practitioner (henceforth ‘the doc’). He sent me to an eye doctor and to get escoliosis dorsal derecha a CT scan of the brain. He also called in for an additional amount of my escoliosis dorsal derecha BP med to increase the dosage for me BUT I escoliosis dorsal derecha found out later that he gave prescription for a different escoliosis dorsal derecha medication in amount of 40 pills (when I had told him only to use mail order escoliosis dorsal derecha if it was 90 pills – three month supply). Never explained or discussed any of that with me about escoliosis dorsal derecha the new drug, what dose to take, whether or not to discontinue either of my other BP escoliosis dorsal derecha meds or anything about it.

Well, I got the CT scan last monday at local hospital. On tuesday I went to the eye doc. Eye doc said I have blood vessel damage in back escoliosis dorsal derecha of each eye most likely due to very high blood escoliosis dorsal derecha pressure over the long term or to BP spike over escoliosis dorsal derecha the long term. He also said that my high BP is the probable escoliosis dorsal derecha cause of my vision problems and my headaches. On friday, I called ‘the doc’ to ask what were the results of my CT scan. His nurse calls me back after business hours to tell escoliosis dorsal derecha me they suspect I have a aneurysm and need to escoliosis dorsal derecha get another test, a CTA scan, BUT they have to call my health insurer to see escoliosis dorsal derecha if they will pay. I told her no preauthorization is needed and she said escoliosis dorsal derecha they were not seeking preauthorization just if my plan would escoliosis dorsal derecha pay for it. I told her my symptoms were worse and I asked escoliosis dorsal derecha her about the BP med prescription and asked what to escoliosis dorsal derecha do to avoid making things worse. She told me to avoid any strenuous activity that would escoliosis dorsal derecha raise my blood pressure. I wanted to ask under what circumstances if any I escoliosis dorsal derecha would need to go to an ER. Somehow the call ended without further info. I guess because it was later friday afternoon. Life went on and my headaches that started on friday escoliosis dorsal derecha evening blossomed into a winner over this weekend and continues escoliosis dorsal derecha somewhat lessened as I type on late tuesday night. Wow a five day headache!

Yesterday, I called ‘the doc’s’ office and left a message, at about 0906, for the nurse asking if the CTA scan had been escoliosis dorsal derecha approved by my insurer. She called me back at about 1018 and told me escoliosis dorsal derecha yes it was okayed and that she had made an escoliosis dorsal derecha appointment for me to have the scan done. I had to wonder when she was going to call escoliosis dorsal derecha had I not made my inquiry. The test was scheduled for 1330 and she told me escoliosis dorsal derecha to be there at 1300.

I got there a few minutes early. I checked in, the receptionist for outpatient had my name illegibly scribbled on escoliosis dorsal derecha a sheet of lined paper; she had to ask me to spell it for her escoliosis dorsal derecha so she could write it on that same sheet legibly. Then she sent me to a waiting area. After about five or ten minutes a woman called my escoliosis dorsal derecha name, then she asked my for the order from ‘the doc’s’ office because they had failed to send it. I explained to her they told me ‘the doc’ or his nurse had arranged for everything, she said that is usually the case but they had escoliosis dorsal derecha not sent the order and she would have to call escoliosis dorsal derecha them. Maybe another ten or 15 minutes at most went by escoliosis dorsal derecha and another woman called me inside to register me. Then off to wait for the test another five or escoliosis dorsal derecha ten minutes. Then the test which the tech told me she had escoliosis dorsal derecha to redo because something had been positioned wrong and she escoliosis dorsal derecha only scanned the very top of my head (with radiation I must say I did not need), the first time around! Then it was finally done.

Doc. Somehow the call was over before I could ask more. Odd now that I think of it, and it only now crossed my mind , nothing was said by the nurse of my prior cerebral escoliosis dorsal derecha ischemia or cerebral infarction in the results of either of escoliosis dorsal derecha the recent scans – did they miss that, I mean I don’t think evidence of those things just disappear!

What to do? I consulted with and RN at blue cross FEP. I gave all of my symptoms to the RN and escoliosis dorsal derecha told him about the recent visits for medical attention for escoliosis dorsal derecha these issues. He told me a neurosurgeon is the type of doctor escoliosis dorsal derecha to consult with about an aneurysm of the brain, and made it clear to me that a cardiologist was escoliosis dorsal derecha not the doctor to consult about an aneurysm in the escoliosis dorsal derecha brain which seems to agree with my care back in escoliosis dorsal derecha 2016. He also said, I can

I also need to see a lawyer ASAP to have escoliosis dorsal derecha my will changed, someone who should not be named is the main beneficiary escoliosis dorsal derecha of that and of my life insurance. Damn, I am the great procrastinator – we’ve been separated for over two months and still have escoliosis dorsal derecha not done those two very important things. I really want to leave all my money equally split escoliosis dorsal derecha between my son and my grandson (my daughter’s son – and I hope she understands that is a good thing), and all of my guns, ammo and personal belongings to my son to do with escoliosis dorsal derecha as he see fit.

This sucks but I hope to get through it. Just in case I do not, allow me to say: my life’s been extraordinary so far, at least in good part thanks to my readers here escoliosis dorsal derecha and of course due to all my friends and mostly escoliosis dorsal derecha due to my family. I hopefully will keep you informed.
