Health issues: Raynaud's phenomenon, Kidney dysfunction (stone maker), type 2 diabetes (in remission), PFO (hole in my heart), PE (pulmonary emboli), TIA's (mini strokes), PH (Pulmonary Hypertension), Hashimoto's Thyroiditis, I have spinal and cervical stenosis, 2 total right knee replacements, esophageal dysmotility, LVDD, POTS autonomic dysfunction, sleep disorder w/ brain arousal's and periodic limb movement disorder (PLMD), and Fibromyalgia. I have recently been diagnosed with chronic iron deficiency anemia.

I also have RSD (Reflex Sympathetic Disorder). Due to my Autonomic dysfunction I have had to have 4ft of my colon removed May 2010. I am a 17 yr breast cancer survivor. 2011 had a 7 vertebrae neck fusion done - 2 rods and 12 screws held my neck together, my neck is completely fused so on 09/13/12 all the hardware were removed.
