Being Old: Part 2

I am starting to suffer from lots of aliments, which usually don't plaque young people.

1. I am having some tummy troubles. After I eat a meal, I urgently have to go to the bathroom within minutes. I did some googling and discovered that this can be a side effect of having your gallbladder removed. Awesome.

2. I have been getting some pretty intense headaches at night. The pain starts in my temples and radiates around my head. The headaches usually start around 9 or 10 at night, making it virtually impossible to fall asleep.

3. I have had a twitching sensation between my index finger and thumb for about two weeks.

4. Sometimes I get a flash of light across my vision. It has only happened a few times, but it is alarming nonetheless.

5. I threw my back out the other day. I can barely move, without being in excruciating pain. It is awful.

In summary, getting older sucks.

I don't know about anything else, but please get the flashes of light checked out! That can be retinal detachment, which is serious.

totally sucks. You seriously need to find a good chiropractor. I know many of them are quacks, but it may help your back, finger twitches, and headaches. Being out of alignment can do all of that.

I keep a small bottle of Immodium tablets in my purse. I still have my gallbladder, but have the same issues as you.

Call a chiropracter and let me know how it goes. :)
