    • I'm not sure! I've read that too so I'm not sure what they think they'll find on the mammogram that they didn't already see on the ultrasound but I'm crossing my fingers for nothing!!! My doctor is very proactive so I'm lucky in that way.
    • Yes.. I googled and it alllll started. And my weakness is a feeling.. like muscle fatique . I haven't had any times where I couldn't do my normal activities. I really think when I think of the word weakness it's diff than Als weakness. And that's where Im losing it. Like Gilly said.. precieved weakness is total.diff than actual weakness.  
    • Tell your counsellor everything. At one point in my life when my anxiety was at it's high point, I was 100% sure that the issues I felt and problems I had were absolutely real.   Eventually as time went on I realized that none of it was real. Yes I had physical symptoms of something, but none of them ended up being symptoms of what I worried they were actually related to. I know its not easy but you need to believe that you will overcome this and that things will work out.   Keep in mind that YOU cant stop trying, because life wont just hand a cure to you....it will work with you during your efforts.  
    • I am not 100% sure but I thought ultrasound was almost BETTER at diagnosing than a mammogram?? I would say it's excellent news your ultrasound was normal and hour doctor is just being proactive in her reassurance to you.  Medical testing so scary when you have HA but it will be ok. Hang in there!! 
    • So to begin I have canker sores and have had them on and off for years and years. This though does not seem like one. I know the easy assumption would be to write it off as that. At least for me it would be. But this is unlike every other canker sore I've experience in the aspect of two things. Pain and presentation. I felt a canker sore on the back of my tongue this morning and wanted to see where it was to put something on it. Upon looking in the mirror and flipping my tongue I noticed a small white area surrounded by red on the underside of my tongue. After looking closely it's a small circular shape with a smaller one the same shape directly beside it. I'm not going to call it a bump as it's not. So it doesn't look like any canker sore I've experienced. Now onto the pain part. It has no pain associated with it. Had I not been looking for the canker sore at the back of my mouth I would've never noticed this to begin with. Now I'm a statistic forward person and I know that at my age(28) my chance is very but that doesn't fully rule me out. I drink alcohol occasionally and I used chewing tobacco for years so that doesn't help anything. I don't think I came here looking for anything other than just to tell someone my worry. I don't know how long the spots have been there but I do know they say if it lasts longer than three weeks to talk with your doctor so I might just make an appointment just to be referred to an ENT probably.
