Hi Everyone

This is a bit hard going for me but just feel needs to be spoken about

because WE ALL DO IT

Many times we get a pain or feel tired, or we ache and we put it down to that lymph playing up again. I did

the tiredess not sleeping, the pain in my shouders and neck i had over done things.

This christmas i was really struggling getting the smallest thing done
i thought Bloody lymph being a pain again so i did the usual tried to ekk out the things i had to do and little at a time rest etc

then i got the dreaded cold and cough, i couldn't do hardly anything without being tired and aching.
So new year came and the not walking without feeling tired i though it was because i not been doing much over the last 2 or three weeks
and started to do my flexing and trying to get back up to what was normal for me

I think you can all relate to what i am saying we all done it many times
Eveything went back to normal i just was feeling tired and walking was even more exhausting so much so i was tired within a few steps and hot with th effort and i felt like i had run a marathon

I went to the docs i was worn out just walking from reception to his office

He did the BP and stuff sent me to the hospital for xrays because i was breathing heavy
well that was a month ago lots happened since and i'm now dealing with a whole new condition that like my lymph isnt going away but if i'm lucky
and with treatment i will have a little control over with meds

Don't assume please that ach or pain is caused by the lymph
if its new and different check it out I know many of you have great problems with med ins and medicare but please check it out if your not sure
