Notes for Dr. Muna Beeai, 3-3-09
Ø Need prescription sent to Medco for refillable 90-day supplies, if possible, of Lescol and Synthroid. Am getting low. (Blood tests?) Currently taking:
o Synthroid, 50 mcg
o Lescol, 80 mg
Ø Need interpretation of doctors listed on the last form. (GYN, etc.)
o Need mammogram
o What was the other number? (Was it a talk therapist? Mammogram?)
o (Need to go to GYN—have called several times, but no appt yet.)
Ø Need another SLEEP STUDY! It’s been over a year since I had one and I never got my CPAP adjusted or got a new mask and I need one. NOT POLICHERLA! It’s been 5 or more years since I had a new mask or CPAP adjustments! (Since well before I moved here!)
Ø Flu Shot? I never got a flu shot this year—should I get one? I reacted very badly to the flu in 2001.
Ø General health somewhat better.
Ø Insomnia is a little better but still have BAD nights fairly frequently. Sometimes have spells of better sleep and sometimes worse.
Ø Fibromylagia is generally somewhat better, but there is still pain, which fluctuates.
Ø Arthritis in neck is somewhat better, still flares up.
Ø Pinched nerve is significantly better, but still flares up occasionally.
Ø Had a few tachycardia events and 1 vertigo event since last visit.
Ø Am still significantly obese! L
Ø My ADHD and memory problems seem somewhat improved much of the time.
Ø I get sick every time I eat out or eat at someone else’s house.
Ø My IBS is significantly improved. Still have occasional bouts.
Ø Had one strange “dizzy spell” (?) while walking that lasted only a few seconds. (I almost fell.) This was months ago and it has not recurred.
Ø Anger and other negative emotions seem to severely affect my sleep and fibromyalgia. I can’t always prevent them. Some therapy/intervention might help some?
Steps I am taking:
Ø I got a Blue Therapy Light (and a bright therapy light) and have been using them daily.
Ø I walk 45 minutes a day
Ø I take almost no sugar, as I seem to react very badly to it.
Ø I do my pinched-nerve physical therapy exercises almost daily.
Ø I do some yoga, stretching and other exercises daily. (sit-ups etc)
Ø I am trying to diet with varying success. I eat very carefully at home, avoiding milk, dairy, soy, nuts, chocolate, coffee, bananas, onions and other suspected foods.
Ø Take vitamins (including extra D), calcium, glucosamine chondroitin.
