Social Security denied my claim for the second time, stating that I am not actually eligible to apply even though they processed my application the first time around. That makes a whole lot of sense, doesn't it? They said they are not willing to even look at my medical records or disability, and will not proceed.

So now I'm stuck getting an attorney involved. I will call one this week.

And I will win. This is very much an open and shut case. Once the judge sees me and my medical records, he will shake his head at the ridiculousness of this situation going to court.

I'll keep you posted.

Five Misconceptions Concerning My Condition

I posted a new blog over at The Fight Against Hypokalemic Periodic Paralysis.

Thank you for reading, sharing, and most of all, for understanding.

Rough Tuesday

I had tests and another consult with Nephrology/Internal Medicine today. I became suddenly ill and almost passed out in the car on the way up to Jackson. I haven't been able to walk without human assistance since. My right side is aching so I guess it's a kidney stone. Dr. F didn't flinch when I told him about it, probably because I've passed so many.

Concerning my current condition, he concluded the same as the MDA clinic, with nothing else significant noted in labs except chronic Nephrolithisis that I'm already taking potassium for. He shrugged off my argument that I'm in an abortive attack and didn't consider an IV even though oral meds haven't worked in a year. He doubled the Inspra in an attempt to raise my K+ level, but that's all he wants to do for now. I don't see him again until November.
