So the good news is I found out what is causing my limp and bad ankles. The bad news is one of my legs is an inch shorter than the other.

That seems to happen to A LOT of people. Some people go their whole lives and don't even realize there is a difference.

It took until now to notice it. So yeah that is a very true statement.

So I'm going ahead and being proactive and scheduling an appointment with a cardiologist. I had noticed lately that I am occasionally experiencing the "heart flutters/arrhythmias/skipped beats" that I suffered during and after my last experience with my OCD/panic disorder, albeit not nearly of that severity. The skipped beats don't bother me, but I just want to know everything is okay FOR CERTAIN. Hopefully he/she will have me do a stress test, echo, etc. Something to see what's going on in there for sure. If I pass these tests with flying colors, I'll know never to be freaked out by the "flutters". Peace of mind is what I'm looking for here.

What 2000 calories looks like
Some good things to note here. Especially the "moral" at the end, that home cooking is easily more healthy, and doesn't have to be more expensive.

I honestly pay little to no attention to calories. But I do pay attention to carbs very closely, as well as fat content. Doing this naturally means less calories for me.

That makes sense. Just to be aware of what one consumes. I certainly haven't been "counting" calories myself, but I look at how much fat is in my frozen meals at work (and sometimes how many calories) so I have an idea. I can't calculate the number for what I cook or snack on at home. That's too much work and too many variables. I don't break out the measuring glass when I grab a handful of Cheerios.

Yeah, calculating calories for home cooked meals with any accuracy has to be an annoying task. Some people do it though.

So I'd been having a slight feeling of hesitancy during restroom breaks, and felt like I should head to the doctor. A urinalysis found blood in my urine but no sign of infection.

Naturally this made my mind divert directly to the worst possible scenarios. I am going to be visiting a urologist for testing, and as much as I might try to keep my mind off it, it's hard to ignore it. I am really, REALLY hoping it's a kidney stone or BPH or some other benign cause.

Your my in my thoughts and prayers tonight Vaporman.

As for me, I've decided it's time to get in better health. I'm changing my diet and working out everyday, and two months from now I'll post "Before and After" pictures of myself to show off the results.

Good luck. I hope you can get this treated.
Right now, for me, I have prostatitis. It's like a urinary tract infection, except the symptoms come up on occasions. There are times where my urine would be completely normal, while there were other times where it would burn when I pee, and I would get some very gunky pee coming out. Very painful. Still trying to get that treated.
I'm not sure if they prescribe antibiotics when it comes to blood in urine or kidney stones or whatever the case may be. But if they do, then I'd like to advise you, Vaporman, and anyone else as well, not to take a fluoroquinolone drug (Cipofloxacin, Levofloxacin, Moxifloxacin). Those drugs could either permanently cripple your body or kill you. I have seen many horror stories from people taking these drugs. If you look up fluoroquinolone poisoning or Cipro poisoning on the internet, then you'll see how bad these drugs are. I learned that after I was prescribed Ciprofloxacin last year, and was this close to take it. The fact that I did my research before I took the drug makes me glad I did as I may have possibly dodged a bullet.
If you do get perscribed a fluoroquinolone, I would suggest asking the doctor for a much safer alternative. It's not worth risking your life over.
