Hi Here Goes!

Over a year ago I went to the hospital with severe back pain a
in the doctor that came in said what's your main complaint.
I said my back she reached down in felt my legs and than said
dependent edema.
That's it.
Okay went home and I have learned to live with the pain
scale 1 to 10 10 plus!
Have gone to my doctor for other things.
I said my right side is killing me.
It's in where kidney might be hurt bad 10 plus no kidney infection.
Than I noticed how when I go to bed
I'll start coughing it's dry and wheezing.
After I fall asleep sometimes I may wake up from choking.
It's hard to explain to someone. I came across in researching ways
to eat for my thyroid I found this (Cardiac asthma) this is the exact
way I'll wake up!
I did go to the sleep clinic have to go back for results at there
I didn't wake up choking in only slept both times around four hours
each time.
Okay I started to notice that when I was sitting or standing there
would be times that I'd have to go the bathroom fast or I'd mess myself.
Bowel sometimes dark colored sometimes skinny sometimes really tiny
or it seems like what is called oily but never just liquid.
As of june 2010 Now it comes out fast!
After I go it feels like there still something there.
I'm not constipated and I don't eat a lot or starve myself.
I eat when my body tells me to because I haven't been hunger for a while now.
I'm tired all the time even when sitting still.
Sometimes so tired I do have to go take a nap.
The right side of my body feels messed up I've had a ache under
my right arm that can stay for hours and than go away.
I can't feel any lumps there!
My right side of my neck swelled with one distended vein in one lymph node
right Occipital Node swollen fixed not movable or painful.
No swore throat or ear aches.
The lymph node stays swollen but the part of the neck where the jaw line
is will go down in up. What's scary is I started to have the non pitting
edema in the hands.
Sometimes like now my left hand or fingers are more swollen than the right.
Sometimes I can feel pain in the chest and than what ever it is with
creep into the breathing area in I'll have to take my inhaler.

Saturday June 19th 2010 Went to the Emergency room they gave me a CT Scan And IV And.
I did say No Pain Killer because I can handle a lot of pain.
I had to drink the stuff In have a CT Scan.
Test results 7 hours later pancreas inflamed And High White Blood Cell Count.
He Didn't Think It Was From A Infection.
He asked if I had my Gall Bladder Out.
I Said No In he checked The area. I said I have no Shoulder Pain
Or Front Pain From That.
But He acted like I should Stay in have my Gall Bladder Out.
I said No Since I had a doctors Appointment a few days latter.
