It was about 5 months ago that I had my overnight stay in the hospital for the pressure I was feeling in my right shoulder/neck/chest. I had been doing so much better... until about 3 weeks ago. The pressure feeling was slowly coming back. It was all in the same place, my neck, shoulder and chest. Thankfully this time it wasn't as hard to breath!
I began to do my ice packs. When that didn't work I went to heat, then back to ice. I tried Motrin, motrin, and more motrin. That made Patrick nervous I was going to ruin my liver, so I used Tylenol, then motrin. And slowly felt the pressure build. Not much fun.
About a week ago I also started feeling very tired. And achy. Once again Patrick became Daddy and Momma and I went to bed. After a week of this we decided it was enough and I went to the doctor. I decided to see the doctor that did the checkups for Callie and Micah and I really like her. She is a little unsure of the problem (just like the other doctor) My bloodwork all came back normal, but after looking at my symptoms and doing some reflex testing, it seems that I'm Magnesium deficient. I had been taking Magnesium supplements for about 13 years (ever since Brenna was born my midwife recommended me taking Calcium, Magnesium and Vitamin D) But, after Micah was born, I ran out and never bought anymore. After looking at the symptoms online, I do seem to have them. So for now I have 4 boxes of medicines to take and hopefully that will work. I need to be the Momma again!
Anyone else ever had problems similar to this?
And thank you to everyone who has been praying for me. You're a blessing!
