Gastroscopy

Oh the joys.
Flexible hose + sedation + gag reflex = not much joy.

Still, I have been waiting over 4 months for tomorrows procedure so hopefully now they can tell me why I have such bad acid and the occasional vomit bouts. Just please god don't let me have an ulcer or anything really nasty. A quick fix that lasts, that's all I'm asking for.

I have also been assigned to another Dr.
Guess I should swing by and whinge at him/ her about my joints. The elbows and my knee are making it difficult to sleep lately - poor Stef keeps saying I keep him up through all the kicking and moaning. Could explain why I don't wake up refreshed, nightmares and pain aren't really a great combination for a good nights sleep now are they!?

I need to speak to mum and find out who it is she see's at the hospital and see if I can get them to refer me to him, the guy sounds bloody brilliant. She has councelling and acupuncture - I'd like to give reflexology a try, the whole foot massage thing helps me come round from a sleepy fit when Stef does it, perhaps if done by a professional it can do a bit more - especially if I can combine it with acupuncture. Lets face it - the drugs don't do shit!
