Dr appt update, good news and bad... in GENERAL Posted June 22, 2019 · Report reply 3 hours ago, Irwin1 said: Wow. Your story is so close to mine..I was sent to the ER and ended up with pneumonia and that's when they found the mass on my lung. A mass is oversized nodule. I feel for you with the extra illnesses that you have to deal with. I have some extra stuff besides the mass. I'm dealing with an anxiety disorder I had all my life. I am dealing with this threat of LC. If it helps I know that the treatment can be rough with side effects. So I try to celebrate each day that I'm not nausea and I am not feeling weak. I do have terrible muscle pain in my calves and legs. Actually it's my whole body. But I know from my college days that when I had finals I got a lot of these muscle aches from the stress and adrenaline that was being released. I am not saying that you have this. But the anxiety and adrenaline can have a huge affect on the body. I am happy that the doctor didn't tell you anything that was totally terrible. That is always reason for celebrating. Hope you can keep getting that good news. Actually good news 👍 is really great news.!!!! Hi, I do have major depressive disorder and PTSD (I witnessed an accident that claimed my 5 year old daughter's life) and am constantly in "fight or flight" mode & it's terrible. I like to think I've been superbly stoic and "in control" when I know now in reality, I can "fake it til I make it" all I want, my mind and body, however, takes the beatings. I know suppressing emotions over the years has directly contributed now to my migraines, high blood pressure and now, Fibromyalgia. I have been in various therapies and twice hospitalized for the PTSD. I get horrible "Charlie Horses" in the weirdest of places--the back of my upper thighs. Omg--those HURT. I do find they have lessened in intensity and episodes since drinking a glass of apple cider vinegar in the morning. I can't say I religiously do it, but if I do it 2-3 x a week, it's a good week. Not the greatest of drinks to down, and adding some honey makes it more palatable, but I do believe I've had some measurable benefits. Give it a try if you haven't!
