    Ditto, FD. Hope it's an easily rectified problem.

    Well, I learned this morning that nerve conductivity testing is NOT a pleasant thing to have done. The shock impulses weren't too bad, but then they put a probe into each of the main muscles of my lower legs one at a time and made me flex the muscle...

    Oh my, now that is a totally new level of pain.

    But, no obvious problems with the nerves nor muscles of my lower legs or feet. So now we have to figure out if it's higher up in my hips or back, or who knows where it's coming from. Looks like this is going to be a long road to figuring it out.

    Glad that the test is over and hopefully the next ones will not be as painful.
    I had a heart sonogram today.
    Found out that I am very fit and in great shape for a 53 year old. It took 20 minutes on the treadmill and 6 of that running to get my heart rate up enough to do the sonogram. Then the heart rate plummeted very quickly.
    I thought for the last few years I was going down hill rather rapidly.
    When they asked what type of exercise I do I just said that I allow the horses to do all the work. I just sit there. LOL. I didnt include hauling feed buckets, picking up bales of hay, grooming 3-5 horses a day or lifting saddles. Shalom

    Is it too late to chime in here? I am over 50 (51, in fact!), and trying to be 30 (or something!) I got back into horses a couple of years ago after a long hiatus being a single Mom, and then a huge near-death scare prompted me to pick up where I left off. Not that I have any regrets about being a mother, just that I had to give up horses to survive after the divorce!

    Fayeds,

    I hope they get to the bottom of the numbness. Did they test the bottom of your feet? Could you have some problem in the spine, where a nerve has been pinched a long time?

    I had some numbness in my left leg years ago, that got so bad it would be like a limp doll at times. Turned out it was a disk trouble. PT and steroids and it went away. That's been 12 years so far so good.

    Fayeds,

    Are you diabetic? I saw a commercial on TV tonight about something called Diabetic Nerve Pain, did not hear all of the commercial, but something about sharp tingling with pins and needles pain in the lower legs and feet.

    Took some catching up reading here........for some reason I didn't get a notification that there had been posts here????? Then again I might have just missed it LOL
    I am still not smoking, the Quit Keeper is really helping me keep focused, I can't believe how many I would have smoked by now! That's crazy!

    I walk the dogs a lot, I should be a flippin' toothpick by now! Since April I've been keeping track of how much I walk with them......it's close to 200 miles!!! LOL I should be a model by now!

    Last Sat. My youngest daughter came out with her hubby, she quit smoking over 6 months ago and has gained some weight, so she thought we would go to some garage sales to find some clothes to fit her. There was one she saw in the paper or something that had clothing for women, so she wanted to go to that one first. So off to town we head!
    Well we couldn't find that one but we saw a sign that said garage sale with an arrow pointing up the side street so we turn figuring it's got to be there.......we park and we go up the driveway, there was a gentleman sitting at a picnic table, he looked up and smiled/nodded at us.....so we continue walking into his garage. There really wasn't much in there but a bunch of mattress and a little side table near the front, so I stop to look at the little table......he says are you looking for something.....my daughter responds nothing in particular........then it hit me!!!! OMGawd! It wasn't a garage sale LOLOLOLOL I was laughing so hard but I managed to ask him if this was a garage sale....NO and he starts laughing too......so the two blondes (my daughter and I) slink away to her car!!!

    I have my boarder's horse Starbuck and my horse Street up at our neighbor's to graze for the summer.....I had my other two, my mare Spice and my appy gelding Chips at home. Well the other night I put them in the pasture for the night.....I get up the next morning (I'm not a early riser) at 9:30 to an email from a neighbor at 6:30am asking if it was my two horses a mile away from here......sure enough I go down and then I realized the night before I forgot to shut the gate because I was debating if I should put them in the north or south pasture........LOL I am loosing it!!

    My friend Lawrence who has been coming out for over 4 yrs. Now riding Chips came out today and we were going to go for a ride but it was just too humid for me......hopefully we will go riding soon!

    Sure, join in....

    Many, Many years ago I was talking with a Friend of my Dad's from Japan who said in the old days they based a persons age on estimated date of Conception, so when one was actually Born they were 3 months old, based on that theory, you are over 50 now

    It was a along time ago and have no idea if the way they age people in Japan is still the same now

    At rising 65 not sure I like that idea. Adding another 3 months to my age. That means my misspent youth years were longer than I thought, and I can't remember them.
