Thu, Feb 20 8:00pm · Slow degradation of my vision. Seeing a retina specialist in Eye Conditions
Still having eye problems. The last few days, sometimes I see a purple smudge on things. Like the leaves of a houseplant may look purple or something like that. I saw my eye doctor Wednesday but she had nothing new to offer. I see her again in Dec. i am considering seeing another doctor. Just wondering about this odd purple business.
I was just diagnosed with “lazy stomach” as the doctor called it. I refuse to take Reglan tho they all keep pushing me to. Mostly, I just live with it, like most of my other woes. A dietitian told me that lemon or vinegar helps taken before meals but I haven’t really tried that. I sometimes take warm lemon water in the morning but to loosen phlegm.
I am very interested in this subject as I too suffer from it. But first, congrats to the new grandparent. And I am so sorry for what all of you are going thru. My swallowing problem started when I was a teenager. I am 75. At first it was just some kinds of meat but it gradually worsened. In my late 20’s I had a few weeks when I could not eat at all. After neurological tests, the doctor said he didn’t know, just hoped it didn’t get worse. I have more trouble with liquids but food depends a lot on the texture. I have had my esophagus stretched many times but no help. They are now telling me I may eventually have to have a feeding tube. I also have acid reflux up into my ears and sinus. I cannot swallow pills at all, must be liquid or crushed. I have been advised to see a speech therapist but none of my doctors seem to want to do that. I guess I have survived all these years, hopefully, I can go a few more. But I am interested in learning more about the surgeries and new treatments.
Well, my doctor told me this was entered by mistake. Yeah! But it does happen to adults. It seems to be a gene thing. One of sisters was once told she had Pagets but I don’t think she did. I know my osteoporosis is very bad. I can’t take the usual meds so I am only taking calcium and Vitamin D.
