I am going to start this… yeah you read the title!
Anyways; let’s be serious here…
Is it my age and posture that is causing many body issues, or is it ataxia?
Like for example: I have joint pain in my legs, knees and hips. Could that be from my inactivity, or from the neurons in my brain. Is it me? Or is it ataxia?
I recently saw a Clinical Swallow specialist, and she came up with two possibilities: one Acid Reflux, or Ataxia. I filled out a Reflux Symptoms Index and my tallied score was 31 out of 45. She said I may have acid reflux… so I went to see my doctor, and she said my blood pressure is mildly high. The Doctor ordered a bunch of tests.
Tut, again, is this mild hypertension due to my age or ataxia?
Yesterday I chaired a meeting that was long and draining. I was watching the interpreters for over three hours. My eyes did a few flutters near the end of the meeting. Was it fatigue or ataxia? Remember my eyes are often over-stressed… I took off my glasses.
I really am a puzzle! Is it age and inactivity? Or is it ataxia? To see, this week I will be trying to do at least 30 minutes a day of physical exercise. Let’s see..
And, I have plenty of blog topics this week!
