    ryn: BP up, headaches worsen, my doc off, so went to ambulatory care place...blood sugar fine, BP way up there, doc there thinks either the kidneys are having trouble with the motrin/aspirin use and causing me to be sick with BP rising, OR might have a cerebral bleed(he ordered and I had a cat scan this evening) OR temoral arteritis?? which would match the headaches hurting more lying down, the nausea/vomiting, visual problems. he saw changes in my eyes suggestive of hypertension....but did not place me on bp meds because it could be labile high bp. Suggested stop pain meds and give it 72 hours to go away on it's own. Meanwhile, have labs drawn in AM to follow up with sed rate etc, and if the sed rate is high, might be the temp. arteritis thing...meanwhile, radiologist to rule out bleed. Came home after ct scan and vomited. Pain is tolerable if I don't lie down. I don't know what I am going to do with the knee pain. I will call my doc after the lab tomorrow AM. He will probably want to see me, too. The Emergency 1 doc wanted to give me pain meds but I declined but I should have taken him up on it since I have to lay off the motrin. He said use tylenol sparenly because of the liver problems since I am on glucophage.

    I agree swim would be good...but i need to get over my self esteem issues with the swim suit, and I don't see that happening at my size.

    When I broke my C1 15 years ago, I could have gone out on disability but refused. I don't do well staying home...makes my depression worse.

    My name is Mary from Regina, I have been reading all the post in the knee form. It sounds like our story is about the same. I have just started here its my first day. It is nice to see that I am not the only one with knee problems as well as weight gain because of it. I am hoping this sight will keep me mo vat ed as I need all I can get. Keep up the good work and God Bless
