Getting up I did also have a little bit of dizziness and stomach issues. I took my medication, however about 10 minutes later I had to throw up. Not sure what triggered it. I rested for a bit before I eat some toast and drank. My stomach settled down allowing me to take my morning medication. I rested until lunch time, by which time my pain levels were much lower.

Today was another so-so day! Starting with the health related items, the day started off without any dizziness, stomach issues or hip and ankle pains. My shoulder’s comfort/pain level was at a very low level. However, after my photo session I noticed some stomach issues and dizziness, which may be due to the PET/CT’s contrast fluid I got injected.
