Tic Or Twitch

I got into the office at 3pm today. I love outside meetings, especially when they are nice weather drives. I also love meetings that result in action plans that you feel will really come to fruition.
I had my neurology consult this morning, number two of the referrals that resulted from my physical. Going to the doctor begets more doctors and tests. The good news is that he doesn't know what is wrong with me. The bad news is that he doesn't know what is wrong with me. We're calling it focal myclonus for now. So I had some bloodwork and I am getting an MRI. Bring on the sedatives to get me in that contraption. (Barb unless you want to come up and talk me through it.) There are treatment options for the symptoms but I am going to pass on medication for now. Acupuncture and massage therapy are also options. It would be great to make it go away but I will be satisfied to rule out any underlying problems. I know that sometimes weird episodes can end up being something more serious. That is how my mom's MS manifested.
On the super positive front I start yoga tonight. I haven't been since I got pregnant with Keegan and I can hardly remember how much I use to love it.
