    Just an update on my condition:
    :biggrin_25513:The problems with my legs has been diagnosed as "Paresthesia" which covers anything from a problem with your big toe to MS so going to see a Neurologists on the 15th of next month. I can be walking and my legs suddenly lock up with an unusual feeling that starts in the calf's and works it way up into the hips.
    My chest hurts around the heart at times, has been checked out but shows up healthy every time so no idea what's going on there.
    It can be a nice temperature and I'll suddenly break out in a sweat and maybe stay that way for hours and then suddenly be ok as though nothing has happened. At times fighting for air but lungs are clear, the headaches come on then, eyes water, mind is racing and doing nothing - just thoughts flashing up with no meaning.
    Whatever the problem/s it's knocking my health downhill. I was hoping time would take away everything but it appears I'm stuck in that never ending cycle of being sick but no-one knows what it is. The swelling of the fluid around the Spine and Brain is the obvious cause - when Meningitis hits it brings on a headache that makes a migraine look like nothing, the stroke level blood pressure had to have damaged my heart and possibly the brain in some way. I just take it a day at a time not knowing what it will bring.

    Aussie,
    I will keep you in my prayers. I see you use to raise Arabians. They look so majestic with their heads high up in the air and their tails straight out when they are running. I love horses and it has been my dream for a long time to raise them. You take care and I pray that your health concerns begin to fade away.

    Already handed in - in no condition now to drive a big rig and have no intentions of trying to regain it.

    Arabians are beautiful anyway you look at them but they at their most impressive with the head held high and the tail up - pure elegance!

    Whispers - He/She is beautiful! One of my Mares won the Australian Arabian Championship {4 year old} - Crabbet/Egyptian line - her line was strong black and included Cool Hand Luke {Imp USA} and the cream of the English Crabbet lines to the original Desert lines - will scan in and put her photo here.

    Hi Aussie, Keep the CDL, it was hard to obtain in the first place. Good luck to you in whatever you do. That had to be a hard decision, but a good one that may save lives, yours very possibly. I will be looking for your posts. Thank you for sharing with us your misfortune. I also hope you will be able to shake this illness. Take care, Semper Fi, Just Bob
