Fibrocystic breasts, anyone? I'm a little freaked out.
Ever hear of it? Have it? Know someone who does/has?
Went to the doc today to check out some tenderness. Also noticed a slight indentation on one side. They told me it looked like I had Fibrocystic Breast Condition. They're sending me for diagnostic mammogram tomorrow. (!!!)
Can I just *tell* you how sufficiently freaked out I am? While in the waiting room, there was a girl my age or younger (32) who was bald, apparently undergoing some kind of treament. Then leaving, there was another girl about my age in the elevator crying. Then I find out that my doc requested an "urgent" mammogram/breast ultrasound appointment to have me checked out.
I know breast cancer awareness is vital, but I swear all the coverage on it has proven to make me quite the shivering wreck in the face of my own unsure circumstances. Even though I left my appt. with her telling me NOT to lose sleep over this; it's most likely just fibrocystic breasts; etc, I cannot help but be quite alarmed.
Thankfully(???) I'm also having jaw muscle spasms that have made it impossible for me to eat, and the dentist prescribed me some muscle relaxers. At least I won't keep myself awake worrying tonight!
Oy. Where's my margarita?
