I feel terrible.

I feel super crappy tonight, so this is going to be a rather short post. The doctor actually called my mom a couple days ago and told us that they found that I have a MTHFR gene mutation. We are a bit freaked out. I don't know exactly all of the details because I have not talked to an actual doctor that knows about this. My kidney doctor ran the test, but she doesn't know much about that because it is out of her field. I have to go see a geneticist about that too. My whole family may have to get tested if it turns out my mom has it.

Physical therapy seems to be doing more harm than good. I'm not going back anymore. Since I am so hyper mobile it irritates something and causes more pain. I will have to figure out other exercises to do on my own I guess.

My Question: What exercises do you all do, if any, and are they easy on the joints?

Miranda's Question: Does your hair fall out? 
I have not had a problem with my hair falling out.

Erin's Question: Pinky/hand tremors?
That happened to me today in fact, so yes I get them. Ha! In class today my left pinky started shaking uncontrollably. It is the oddest thing. Tremors happen to me quite often. My leg will start shaking uncontrollably and other times it is my arms or hands. Once I had full body tremors.

I hope you all have a great remainder of the week!
God bless


  1. Cheyanne,

    Do you know if you are homozygous or heterozygous for the MTHFR polymorphism?

  2. Hello Holly. It is Cheyanne. I am hetero c677t. Do you have it too or know anything about it?
