)) It may just be a coincidence but since the start of my sciatic issues in my left leg in October of 08, I have developed other health issues which I am now trying to have diagnosed. Specifically, extreme fatigue -- my Primary Care doc referred me to a hematologist and I am seeing an endocrinologist next week. The severity comes and goes, I can be down (bed ridden/couch bound) for a few days or weeks and then I'll feel more normal for a small period of time. My blood tests came back normal at the hematologist but he took more blood last week and now wants me to have a liver scan. I'm hoping the endocrinologist can diagnose the issue because I can't look for another job until I get both the leg pain and fatigue under control.
I don't venture far from my home right now -- trips to the grocery, drug store, wal mart, etc. Right now, my roots are screaming for a touch up but the thought of driving to my hair salon and sitting through two hours just isn't very appealing. Even my doctor's appointments have to be rescheduled if I'm too tired to make it to the office. Yes, I do have friends I can call to take me to my appointments but I just hate to bother anybody.
Anyway, just thought I'd ask if anyone else has had other health issues crop up after having spinal issues. I was very healthy and very active prior to June of 08 when all this mess started.
Thanks for you input!
