Home from Cleveland Clinic

Hi, Folks. We are home safely with some good suggestions and unexpected diagnoses - all of which are good and not life-threatening. I'll post more about that when i've rested.

Basically, fibromyalgia, exercise asthma (if any asthma at all), possibly vocal cord dysfunction, microbacterial spots in lungs (haven't changed in a long time), sleep apnea (getting a c-pap machine), restless leg syndrome (changing to extended release Requip which is just out), changing from Prozac to Cymbalta since Prozac has been shown to exacerbate the RLS. All doctors think that, if I get sufficient and efficient sleep, I will be much better, easier to lose weight, able to exercise. Also got a shot in my hip for bursitis.

More later - or maybe not until we see what the changes do. I have other things to write about. Thanks for prayers.

I'm glad you and your partner are home safely! I know Buckhannon was way outta the way, as was I-79. But maybe one of these days we can engineer our paths to cross!!

Welcome home... I'm always glad when the medical people can give me something to try, or some direction to take. May it be good for you!
