    Do you ever find yourself second-guessing what your latest health issue could be?

    For me, it’s never a straightforward answer. I see the doctors. I do the tests. And the ambiguous findings leave us all guessing. It’s nerve-wracking, to say the least. And due to the nature of SMA, I’m always left wondering: is this an actual health issue, or is this just a product of my disease?

    In my latest column, I write about just that. I’ve been experiencing debilitating GI issues for a few months now, and doctors can’t seem to pinpoint the root cause. While I will continue to search for answers, I can help but wonder if this is simply the course of my disease.

    Have you been in a similar predicament before? What are some ways you put your mind at ease while in the unknown?

    Hope you find a solution. It can be tricky for sure. When I went to the ER for abdominal pain, they diagnosed it as a bad gallbladder. Easy fix remove it. Not so much. I ended up in the hospital for an extended period of time due to complications. SMA on top of that exasperated those complications. Anyway, I feel your frustrations. Hugs! Feel better soon.
