ChrisComedy's Journal, 29 December 2014

I learned at my visit to the sports physiologist/nutritionist that I have shrunk. In my youth, I was 5' 9". I'm now 5' 7'. The good news: he's worked with clients who have regained height. He says sugar is inflammatory so I'm down to two teaspoons a day.

More good news: my appointment for a referral to see a neurologist has been moved up to tomorrow. The bad news: it's two days before my Medicare medical coverage kicks in. *FML*

Obviously, I want to to recover my strength. On another level, I'm curious as to just what is going on. I can speculate, but since I don't have the resources or expertise, that's all I can do. Medical mysteries are fairly common. That's what my case is since exhaustive tests say I'm nominally healthy.

You might put that off until Medicare kicks in.

I "shrunk 2" after a cervical fusion. As you age your disc space can also decrease resulting in being shorter. Reason I said you might put it off, neuron guys are expensive!!!

I agree, wholefoodnut. Fortunately, I'm seeing a GGP who's going to refer me to a neurologist. By the time I see the neurologist, medical kicks in. I got lucky and have been covered by hospitalization since July.

Good, I just know I was so thankful I had good medical coverage when I saw my neurologist for my headaches. Pricey!!!!
