My Dear Child Do you have bad periods. Where is your back ground from? Have you talked to your parents? Do you drink water at all. If not you might be dehydrated. What are your doctors saying? The reason why I am asking you about your background is because there is a blood disorder that unless you ask for this test they will not do it and it comes from a place in Europe such as Italy. Greece, Spain, Etc. Its called Thalaciemia major or minor. Do not think I spelled it right but this blood type but it can be serious if you are not tested for it. You might also be growing to fast or not eating properly. You might also be lacking in protein or iron. My dear go to the doctor and have this looked at. Good luck. G.G.

My father has multiple myeloma. he s on his third month of the BiRD treatment right now with Revlmid, biaxin and dexamethazone. his BP has been low this week and tonight has dropped to 101/53. he s weak and can t keep his eyes open and has sever leg cramps. He s been fairly active since on the treatment since this particular regimen can cause blood clots. He s coherent and not dizzy at all. we can t get him to drink much, but we are thinking maybe the low bp is due to dehydration. we can t get ahold of his doctor or nurse right now. should we worry? is there anything we can do to make it come up?
