Just a "zebra" trying my best to live life to the fullest with EDS and POTS...and loving the ride.

Five For Friday 12/24/10

I’m going to keep this one short and sweet with longer Christmas posts to come!

1.  I’m cheating and putting the medical posts into one:  Went to Fort Wayne and had facet injections into C6/C7 in my neck. Started physical therapy again.  My first session was focused on the soft tissue in my neck and back (aka a massage).  The plan for physical therapy is toning work with soft tissue work.  Made an appointment with my OB-GYN to talk about starting a new birth control to hopefully help the EDS by making me less stretchy during my time of the month.

Forgive me, I’m a day late.  Had a yuck day yesterday-all hurricanes going at once; POTS, neck, Migraine, GI…Was on the massage pillow and heating pad most of the day and in bed at 8:30…Hopefully today will be a better day.

1.   Larry had me meet with a doctor from Minnesota who was in town for the weekend teaching at the MSU College of Osteopathic Medicine, Principles of Manual Medicine Course.  He spent an hour Sunday and an hour Monday doing visceral manipulations on me.  AND, his wife and daughter both have EDS! Visceral Manipulation is a type of gentle manipulation that helps relieve imbalances and restrictions in the interconnections between the motions of all the organs and structures of the body. (I took that from http://www.jeffreyburch.com/home/jb1/visceral_main.html).
