Dr. please figure me out!

I know I haven't posted since last week, but dang it was a week! It's hard to believe how fast time flies and I can't believe we are in the middle of October already! Soon we will start putting up Christmas trees. I found Christmas ornaments are our local food store!

Remember when I said my running has been off? I decided to take a couple weeks off, which I thought was going to be really hard, but instead it has been quite easy. The hardest part- finding a different stress reliever. 

Friday, I found myself in urgent care, where I waited 1.5 hrs to see the Dr.  My physician did not have any appointments, so it was either wait, go to the Emergency room or hope nothing else went wrong and wait for a Tuesday appointment. I decided I did not want to wait with the crazy symptoms I was having.

The physician at urgent care spent two hours running several tests. My throat was swollen, but my strep came back negative,
 although she felt that my lympth notes were enlarged and tender. 
Like they were a couple of weeks ago, when nothing was
wrong..

She noted all of my body changes, the constant fatigue, the pain and a couple of other symptoms, ran a bunch of tests and sent off several blood work labs.

I'm hoping something will show up in the blood work. I need something to show up! I'll keep you posted!

Have you ever experienced symptoms as a runner and new something wasn't quite right with your body? What did you do?

Me too! That sucks! You must have your deductible paid off by now right?

Are you sure it's not Lupus?

Oh goodness, girl! I really hope you get some answers soon! I can't imagine how frustrating it is, not knowing what's wrong.
On a side note, Yay Christmas!!

Yuck, sorry you are having these issues. Poor thing! Could it be a food allergy that surfaced? Praying for answers!
