Mystery of the Internal Vibration

Entry for May 12, 2005



Today I mentioned to my wife that I had a feeling of a fine internal vibration inside of my body (like a cat purring) and I only feel it when lying down at night in bed. It’s been happening for a few weeks now. Maybe I should get it checked out.  I’ve always been in fairly good health, so much so that I never bothered with a family doctor since I moved out of Orangeville in 1991. I don’t smoke, I don’t drink alcohol or coffee and I don’t drink carbonated drinks. I eat a fairly healthy diet although I could probably eat a lot more fruits and vegatables.

So to the Walk-in clinic I go for internal vibrations!

Six months ago I moved to the Oshawa area from Scarborough and although the commute is a bit longer, it’s a great place to relax and not think about the big city life. (NOTE TO SELF: Canandian winters? Always buy a house with a garage.)

My wife is now four months pregnant with our first child.  How exciting!!! They have told us the due date will be November 4th.

I met with the doctor in the walk-in clinic and I mention the internal vibrations. She appeared quite puzzled and she checks me over. She starts by shining a bright pen flashlight in both of my eyes, takes my blood pressure and listens to my lungs. She says everything appears normal and orders a blood and urine test.

That will have to wait until the weekend as the lab is now closed.
