Possible diagnosis

As I was on my way to the supermarket across the street, my clinic called and asked if I could be in there at 3pm.  I said sure, skipped the supermarket, and walked down to the clinic.  Which was kind of dumb, because I then got to walk ten blocks in the heat, wearing a hoodie.  So I was pretty gross by the time I got there.  But I got poked at some more, and my test results from last week got examined.  There are some abnormalities in some of them, but normal abnormalities, I guess.  They weren’t in the “perfect” range, but they weren’t off by enough to mean anything.  

But after some more poking and considering, I was given a referral for neurology, for a nerve study, which will either confirm and exclude the doctor’s theories that it might be neuropathy.  They’re gonna call me tomorrow to schedule it, and boy, I’m not looking forward to that.  At the same time, it’s an answer?  Maybe? I mean, any diagnosis was probably never going to be a nice one, but I guess there are worse that could have come up.  In the meantime, I am to take a mountain of ibuprofen with every meal, so I stopped at the teryaki shack across the street before stopping into the supermarket to get the milk and cream cheese I needed, along with the mountain of ibuprofen I’ve been prescribed.
