Went through the same parade of tests several years ago for the same symptoms. Results were I had diabetes type II.

Here's hoping for a simple fix for you.

Michelle;
Your flying days areNOTover, UNLESS you have been denied a medical.
The new Sport Pilot rating will keep you in the air.
I'm guessing you may have already begun to look into this area. Sounds like your commercial days may be numbered, your fun flying may still be available. again if you have been denied a medical you are pretty much limited to gliders, which are a ton of fun!
I would like to add that I am not a fan of the new sport pilot rule, not enough training IMO. but in your case I support the rule wholeheartedly.
The Rans S-7 is a fun flyer!
Best Wishes- Fly tailwheels-

Michelle,

As someone who never seems to let moss grow under your Airstream wheels, or wings for that matter, you will find a way.

As Royce noted knowing what it's not is always encouraging.

Obviously your vision and intenal radar is working well if you can hone in on those good looking doctors so quickly. You may need to hang out a bit more often at hospitals

Barry

sounds like it might be workable. Call aopa if you haven't already; they have alot of help for just such situations.

DG: I agree with your sport pilot assesment...makes more sense to just eliminate the class III medical. Some would say that it is the preliminary step toward that. but in any case...neither will pay the rent.

M, If its as 2air says, and its "just the meds", then I'm sure you can work it out. I can tell you, I know what its like when "its not the meds", and it sucks.

Lunch with thecatsandi

Today Michelle and I met for lunch at a classic long-time Italian market & deli on the west edge of downtown St. Paul, MN. Dealing with costly parking meters we escaped right after a nice visit and tried to recapture part of my unknown past.

My father took this photograph around Labor Day 1945. His 390th Bomb Group, 8th Air Force flight crew had just flown their B-17 from England via Reykjavik, Iceland, to Gander, Newfoundland, and into retirement at Sioux Falls, SD. Afterward they had some relaxation time around the Twin Cities. He took this photo of downtown St. Paul's Holman Field right on the Mississippi River flood plain. Those are B-24s headed into retirement on the left and I see a DC-3 on the right:

I've longed to reproduce the photograph as it currently stands. I'd done my research so we ventured afield after lunch and found the historic Mounds Park on Dayton's Bluff just east of the Mississippi River, just below downtown St. Paul. This next photo is from near the same vantage point as my dad's picture but his location is now overgrown. We moved a little to the right and that is the image below. Two stops of correction weren't enough for my secondary old compact digital camera to correct for the snow and sun in our faces.

I'll go back! I appreciate Michelle for tolerating my adventurism. Did you say that the quonset huts are now part of 3M's corporate aviation division? You can send me any pics you took...

Michelle? You are still an hour and a half from takeoff time. Hopefully you will get some wireless in the airport and tell us how wonderful Mall of America was. [can't find the :cough-gag: smily! Where'd it go?!?!]

Bob,

What a wonderful thing to be able to track your father's history like you have.

I'm envious. I'm sure it brings him closer to your heart.

Barry

Thanks Barry. Little did I know but airplane-oriented Michelle had already stopped at Holman Field to drive around and snap some pics before we actually met for lunch. It didn't take much to pull her along on my diversion.

I'm sorry to hear about your diagnosis, but at least it isn't terminal. I'm betting you'll find a way to beat this one too. After all, we have to go to a BIG Camping World together sometime.

My sister has a dear friend who was diagnosed with fibromyalgia 2 years ago. She was told to "learn to live with it" - which meant barely being able to get off the couch to get to the front door.... but luckily she fooled all of the doctors. She found a wellness coach who suggested sensibly that she start with dietary changes and nutritional suppliments. I just called my sister to double check what she took.... The main product is a liquid callex "XanGo" which is made from a fruit called mangosteen. Check XanGo® Juice: The Power of Xanthones from the Whole Mangosteen Fruit

Margo still has some residual symptoms, but last time I was in Ohio she was back to being able to work full time, and could still have enough energy to go out for groceries, etc.

I'm not sure this product is magic, but definitely nutritional products seem to help. Good luck and I'll be wishing you the best.

Paula
Rivettes Rule!

My medical has been suspended, not denied yet. The FAA NW region did this because i surendered it in a timely fashion. They are being human about the whole thing.

Maybe, maybe not. I have been looking at ultra lights and sail planes. I want to build a breezy. not sure of the weight though. I suspect it is over 450-700 lbs. I cannot remember where the cut off is. Mine is currently 12,500..

I have already talked with AOPA. They were not much help once I told them what I was taking. I am actually getting a lot of help from the FAA NW region. They have a person there who cares. I am greatful for that.

It may be just the med is the problem. Other medications are possible. Some of the anti-depressants work for pain as well. I am not sure I can get those approved.

Paula,
My neurologist has made some suggestions. Diet is one that I have already changed., exercise, and some practial stuff like making sure my body is well moisturized inside and out. I have seen a dietician, a acupuncturist, chiropractor and a theraputic massagist? All have helped some. Ther is not magic bullet. It is just going to take some time to find out what works for me.
