    And, though you don't have your test results yet, when you get them you will find that he has tested for inflammation in about 4 different ways.

    And I said the same thing as well. It sure does sound like inflammation.

    The proof is in the clinical markers. I'm just being a purist. Demand facts to back up the symptom.

    I'm sure the doctor has his method.

    I don't see the harm in checking for standard clinical markers of inflammation, and I also don't understand why he wouldn't check.

    And they thought the same thing about me. And the tests showed something different.

    That's why it's important to do the testing.

    I like my rebounder. It is said to be very efficient exercise. I do just the gentle bouncing where the feet do not leave the surface of the rebounder.

    For some odd reason, if I let my arms hang down at my sides, my heart rate goes up quickly. If I bend my elbows so that my lower arms are horizontal in front of me (and I can see my pulse oximeter at all times), the heart rate does not go high as quickly.

    I also do some stretching. Simple ones don't effect my heart rate much. The ones for my back, which involve my whole body, will put my h.r. up. I have to do sets of 2 or 3 with ample rest between.
