@lorirenee1 Thank you for the suggestion!! Natural fruits like prunes have definitely been helping (vs Colace and Miralax which don't do anything at all) so I will definitely try the papaya. I had never heard of an "internist" before you and @techi suggested it. I have been looking for a PCP so I'll asking about the CBC panel/urine culture. I've had lab tests at the campus health services and they all came back normal but I'm……not sure I trust that, considering what's been going on.
And I'll consider yoga because you're right, I'm very fearful. I can suppress it on most days until I see a weird spot on my arm or my muscles twitch and then I get really panicked. I appreciate that you picked up on that, it's hard to keep under wraps.
