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.

Please share the information on regaining height when you get it. Good luck to you.

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!!!!
