@albean99 I am looking at the Skechers that looks somewhat similar to ones I have, but can't get any more. I don't have feet issues, but just like that style. Having said that, I have very narrow feet and it can be a challenge to find shoes that fit so I typically don't buy them online since I have to try them on. Sandals are the worst since they are more open. How do those fit? Wide or narrow? They seem to be adjustable. I just hate having to send stuff back. I am one of those weird size people that rarely fits the standard.

@sdmom I hope they can figure this out. The waiting is the worst part and you are worrying about your mom on top of that. Praying

Thanks ladies! But I should have made it clearer: please forgive me my poor grammar and equally poor typing: my mom’s cancer diagnosis was in 2012 and she passed away in 2014.

Anyway, I am more frustrated than worried because I have no idea what causes the elevated calcium level. Maybe my body just doesn’t absorb calcium well and release it to my blood!

@sdmom I'm sorry to hear about the loss of you mom. Praying

I know how you feel on not knowing what causes it.

I've always had low blood pressure. I have no idea how to get it to a more normal reading. My doctor is never worried about it. I don't have any problems with it, other than cooling down after a shower. I like my shower's hot, and if I don't cool down for a few minutes I feel like I'm going to pass out, and immediately have to lay down. laugh out loud

@GuardianAngel Good thing you don't drink wine as red wine, in particular, contain histamine and it can trigger anything that is histamine related. Hope your skin continues to clear.

So I got lab results back from my neurologist and it says I am anemic. Have any of you been or are as well? Going to my doctor this week to see what I can do or take. So far I've been taking iron pills. My best friends' say I should eat spinach but no thanks I am too picky with vegetables! laugh out loud

@Linds911 Iron tabs work. I was on them for a while, but there are a lot of foods that can help with your iron...red meats, shellfish, beans, green vegetables...spinach, broccoli, even dark chocolate.

@Sprite - I am anemic from kidney problems. I take iron tablets twice a day but some of the foods mentioned are "verboten" for the kidney patient. Depending on the severity of the hemoglobin level, some patients see a hematologist to monitor their levels. If you go down too far then a transfusion is sometimes called for. Otherwise there are a couple of injectable drugs which can be used. Hope this is helpful. Dr. Newto LOL.

As for dark chocolate, bring it on!!!

@Linds911 Anemia is a broad term. I hope your doctor clarifies this for you and you confirm that iron pills are what is needed. Good luck - I know lagging energy can be a side effect of low red blood cells.

@Newto Yes, it all depends if you have other issues. My mom is on a lot of medication and can't eat certain foods as a result since they effect how well the drugs she is on work. That is why it is best to discuss these things with your physician. She asked her doctor to print her out a list of which foods she needs to avoid so that she can keep them on the fridge to remind herself.

@Sprite @Newto @Norcalgal Thank you for your tips! My doctor said to take iron pills, eat lots of red meat and even drink orange juice! Going to take more blood work in the next few weeks to see what happens.

@Linds911 keep us updated! It's a good idea to follow doctors orders then do more bloodwork to see the difference.
