I have what????!!?!!?

I have had a sore throat for the last week+.  It came with no other symptoms that indicated I had a cold.  So I went to the doctor on Friday.  I was diagnosed with Hand, Foot and Mouth disease.   I’m like WTF?  As far as we know, nobody else around me has it.  We have no idea why I got it.  It is a viral infection so there is nothing you can do for it.  It takes 10 days to run its course and on the 10th day (yesterday) it was gone as promised.   But isn’t that weird?

I was also diagnosed as probably having IBS – Irritable Bowel Syndrome.  There is nothing that the doctor can do for me.  She can give me anti-spasmodic medicine but the pain doesn’t last long enough for them to have any effect.  I need to be in pain for more than a couple of hours in order for them to work.   I can work on changing my diet (did that!) and reducing my stress.  Ummm… hmmm…. that will be easier said than done.  Interestingly enough, my last two bouts occurred on a Friday.  I guess I must not like weekends very much.

  1. Colleen had hand, foot, and mouth disease when she was little. Isn’t it a funny name? I wish you didn’t have IBS, what an uncomfortable thing to deal with. :(Feel better, hon!]Hugs, Jen
