This Girl is On Fire

I’ve been having what appears to be one long hot flash lately- my hands, neck, head, ears, heart and upper back have been internally very hot. I feel as though I’ve had a bucket of lava dumped over my upper body,  though I’m sure that if I was actually bathed in lava, I would not be alive.  On top of that, my ears keep clogging up, and though I am not deaf, I feel like I’m going deaf because I can’t hear the usual background  ambient noises that are normal for me.

I’ve had to entertain a lot of icky ideas about what might be happening:  HyPERthyroidism.  Hormone imbalance. Heart and blood problems like hypertension, high cholestrol, high blood pressure. Diabetes.  Besides the usual dread diseases, there are also other awful  possibilities, well explored by a certain guy who lives in my house who loves to predict multiple doom options daily: Global Warming. Fukishima Radiation. EMFs from cell towers. HAARP frying us in microwaves. Coronal Mass Ejections from the Sun. Niburu, planet X coming to destroy our planet with it’s gravitational field. Pole Reversal. In the meantime, I’m still here and hot.

I’ve now been to a Naturapathic doctor who examined my ears and confirmed that, yes, I have a bunch of wax clogging them up.  She’s prescribed Omega 3, cooling herbs and tinctures and the inevitable blood  tests  and lipid panels.  How I hate going for blood extraction with my narrow, rolling veins. And I will have to fast. The only Quest lab tech I like is across the Golden Gate Bridge. I may just drive there because they always have trouble getting blood out of me. She recommended I have my conventional doctor wash out my ears and the hunks of wax be removed.

But already I feel better, not alone with a condition that could be damned near anything.  There is something about going to a doctor, stranger or not, and being treated with concern, personal or not. The doctor in question is trained in acupuncture though she doesn’t practice it in this state, and I liked it when she took my pulse at the wrist and did my blood pressure.  Human contact and interaction are still my healing modality of choice.
