No choclates, Rather give her something else. You wil have a variety of things to choose from. Go ahead look around except from choclates and thingscontaing sugar. Gift her something that she can cherish and keep in rememberance.

Lately I have been very fatigued and weak to the point that I can not keep up with my daily activities. I also have some shakiness, pains in my feet and legs, also tingling. I also have urgency urination,more so than frequent. I just feel out of it all the time now as if I have a hard time concentrating and wake up feeling tired as also going to bed exhausted. I want to thnk everyone for their input and concerns. I did see the Doctor yesterday and I had blood work done for numerous things including Diabetes , no results yet. I was at a friends house after work tonight and he took my sugar level and it was 100, this was without eating since last night.Still waiting on the Doctors results of tests done.

Hi, I am 56, average weight (57kg), 169cm tall. Lately I had several occasions where after drinking green tea or water I develop belching and severe dull pain in my left kidney area, sometimes lasting for 2 days. Often it is when I twist my torso or do anything just after drinking. It is not indigestion - it is usually on empty stomach. Could it be something with my kidneys or pancreas? I am taking pancreatin for digestive problems. I also have sliding hernia and a host of other problems, but this is a new one.
