Yikes faith - thats one scary story! Glad everything worked out ok and you pushed them to do something!!

Medical care here is vastly different to at home so a situation like that would be pretty much impossible.

Not gone to doc yet. Its chaos out there. I drove to market to get some food and there is just no way I can manage the trip into mataram to see anyone today. I'm going to just sit tight today as long as I don't start feeling worse. A bit better today, but still very weak and the other symptoms are still here. I reckon anxiety is a symptom after the way I was feeling last night haha.

Poot, there has been no diving for a while due to financial concerns. Each day diving ranges from 50-150 + hotel + restaurants so I put it on hold for a bit to extend my stay. I am currently making plans to do some diving in south lombok, and perhaps a trip in august to menjangan in bali.

Tig rest rest rest... Did I say rest...
Try to put your mind in neutral...
Do the minimum that you must do and keep your body quiet & your cell phone handy (if you have one)
Did you call the lady Dr about getting in tomorrow?
Please find SOMEONE TO DRIVE when you get out til you are better... you dont want to put yourself & others in harms way... BIG
Keep your anxiety level at a minimum (if possible) & trust that we all are for you!

Sorry you can't get to the doctor today. As everyone says, stay very quiet and have your phone near you if you get to feeling worse.

Tiggy -- Scary symptoms! I hope the doc has found out what's wrong! Praying for ya!

You look really good in blue, and your current picture, you are really looking grreeat!...it IS unmercifully GRADUAL and SLOW for the body to change but you are getting beautiful definition and a glow of confidence and hot BAHB-ness.

Yeah, dam core, the last thing to go!! and even harder when you get older!!
Before my hubby lost 60 lbs, I would tell him he had 6-pack abs...wrapped in a blanket

Anyway, I hope you are better.

Nancy

OK I got an message from Tig:

Tell the girls I am ok ish. Went to the doc who did tests on my heart etc and says I have nothing wrong, and no tropical disease. He diagnosed depression, which I have known for 20 years I have haha and blames that for this. This is NOT depression symptoms - i have 20 years experience with that. This is something entirely different and unmanageable. I know my body and something is wrong. He gave me 2 kinds of anti vertigo pills but neither has done anything positive. At least the xanax is nice for getting a long and good sleep haha.

Blood pressure was a bit low (for me), ekg was normal, pulse normal, iron normal everything physically appears normal. I will give it another week before I get worried and hop a plane to aus or canada.

Hi guys, hope you all had a great week while I was laid up in bed doing nada. Thanks amber to report in for me to let you know I am okish - nothing life hreatening at least, but I am still really not well. My electric and thus wifi is down atm so writing this offline so no time to do personals, nor do I have a huge amount of concentration as I am still unwell.

Scale went the right direction this week with an approximate loss of 2.6lbs (didn't weigh on official day but using an estimate of the day prior and today. So I'll claim 253. Getting pretty close to that under 250 mark! Spreadsheet forumla and trendline both reckon it will be in 2 weeks time.

I did eat some carby stuff in my week away to check if low carbs was causing this. Not yummy carbs, boring crap like rice and potato. Didn't help. Not been hungry at all this week and my body isnt giving me any hunger signals but I am making myself eat anyway.

So I went to the hospital the other day (its the one place in town that has international quality doctors and facilities). As per faith - I ensured they did my ekg and stuff to check my heart. My BP was low (for me at 100/60) sugars was fine at 63 (fasted at 3pm) and heart and lungs and body appears healthy and the doc diagnosed anxiety/depression. Thats all well and good as I KNOW I have depression and have for 20 years, but this is a really abnormal way for me to feel. Because my symptoms do fit the anxiety diagnosis he was convinced thats what it was and gave me some meds for vertigo and some xanax to sleep at night. He reckons getting crap sleep is a big part of bad depression/anxiety as the cytokines don't get a chance to regenerate in reasonable quantities.

He was also wanted to put me on depression meds but I know how that turns out and went nuh uh, no ssri's for me mister. We got talking and he suggested trying the parkinsons type meds for low dopamine - he also reckons that is my problem and said my bad fine motor control is a big give away. I am ruminating on that idea. I really dislike drugs.

So the anti vertigo stuff didn't do a thing, and the xanax knocks me down for 12-14 hours and I haven't done much. Still feeling weird and unwell but I take comfort that there is nothing immediately life threatening. So now I reckon its either the anxiety (which I don't feel I have as I have nothing overly worrisome in my life), an undiagnosed innner ear infection (I really should just go buy some amoxilcillin and try that), or MS. MS is the scary one (note to readers - DONT google your sickness symptoms unless you wanna scare yourself to death) and it does fit everything including these weird tingly things I have been getting in my legs off and on for a month or so.

Prayers are appreciated!

Today I am feeling a touch more mobile - actually every morning I am semi ok for 10-60 minutes before the BLAH part pops by. Sitting outside with my computer in my gazebo instead of inside. Watered the plants - poor things were half crispy, wiped down the kitchen and prepped laundry. Life goes on. I can deal with the body not cooperating (I have to mentally focus on each step), but gimmie back my cognition PLEASE! My mind is the one thing I PRIDE myself on, it is the core of me and not having full access is really frustrating me. I am a fast person. I walk fast, drink fast, think fast, and this slow stuff is for the birds!

Oh and I discovered a yummy LCish treat. Since Ive not been hungry I cut an onion into rings and deep fried it till crispy and yummy. I reckon those of you that have the carb allowance, and perhaps some breading stuff could make proper onion rings. Seriously delish.

So thanks all for your prayers and worrying about me. It was lovely to log into so many well wishes. you guys! Heck I even drew out a lurker! Hi shabrihil - welcome! Oh and Nikki as well . Looking great nikki!!!

6 pack wrapped in a blanket - yup, I can relate. Mines in a blanket and parka and sleeping bag combined hehe.

Tig- I am glad you got a good check out, it is reassuring to know you are OK basically, do not google MS, MS sounds like everything!!! Many times I was sure I was getting it. It sucks cause it usually strikes women in their 30 and 40's, so skip that one. Lack of sleep is a killer, I mean we do need to sleep those few nights I couldn't sleep I could relate to what you guys and Tony goes through it had me off base. Sleep is when the body repairs, so it makes sense that lack of sleep is messing things up.
You are so close to being under 250!!! I know you will be there soon!
