    • That's me. I have also found it to be coupled with low blood pressure. Anxiety manifolds it
    • Hi All! Has been a few months since i have visited since i had been doing pretty well! My pregnancy is going along perfect, am almost 35 weeks now 🥰. Ready almost to meet my babyboy!   so in the beginning of my pregnancy i noticed a single swollen lymphnode in my right axilla (armpit). Its a pea sized firm mobile lump deep in there, mostly palpable arms down, not very noticable when arm is up. Doctors felt like it felt quite innocent but sent me for an ultrasound anyway. Ultrasound did not find the node at all, just wrote ‘no space occupying process found’.    So, 5 months later and recently my hormones have been playing up a bit more again and hence, so is the anxiety. I felt my armpit again yesterday and i feel like it got a but larger... especially laying on my right side i feel like its at least twice as big! When up straight ik not too sure, maybe a little bigger.. arm raised again hardly noticable..  so is it time to revisit the doctors? Demand another ultrasound?  Or just leave it at the conclusion they made months ago?
    • My wife was also diagnosed with a fatty liver. She is on a special diet called Optavia and has lost 30 pounds so far, with a bit to go. 
    • Just got home from the ultrasound and my gallbladder is good but I have the beginning of fatty liver so I need to work on my weight loss.  I don’t have the results from the thyroid yet but it is currently under review.  I am so hungry right now because I could not eat before the ultrasound so food is definitely my next step.  
    • It’s late so I’m stressing a little about the ultrasound but thus far I have been okay with the thyroid.  I am also a little concerned about the ultrasound for the gallbladder but it’s more about the fact that I can’t eat or drink water until I get the scan.
