Hello my dear readers!! I’m sorry for the lapse in posting. I became ill with Bronchitis, and it is just kicking my butt! I ended up in Urgent care on the 24th, and then a week long battle to get antibiotics occurred! I finally ended up going back to Urgent Care this morning. They got me right in, and gave me a shot of antibiotics! At last!! The Nurse Practitioner I saw was great. She really listened and wanted to help me!
I Ended up in the Emergency Room Last Thursday due to a migraine, my right eye was completely swollen shut, my left eye would barely open! That was even less fun! The doctor treated me like an idiot, and wouldn’t even listen to me about my having dysautonomia or what medications are dangerous to me! Needless to say I will not be going back to that hospital. While I was at the hospital, I was given Toradol and Zofran. I was more nauseous after receiving the medications than I was before! Not only that I seemed to have some reaction to the Toradol and ended up staying awake for over 36 hours!! I was so tired, but I just couldn’t fall asleep!!!
So in my journey to help with my congestion I decided to take Nyquil the other night.. No… Bad Idea!! I had a horrible reaction to it. I was so scared. Oddly enough I only took barely half a dose! I became so hot, and uncomfortable I couldn’t sleep. Terrible! The doctor this morning said that I shouldn’t take any decongestants because of my Dysautonomia and my arrhythmia. So I stored that in my memory bank…Nyquil Bad!!
So, I’m home resting, eating crackers, drinking gingerale..craving some actual food!! Hopefully these antibiotics knock this out of my system. Tomorrow I see my new neurologist for the first time, and an Internist I’m hoping to make my PCP. I’m hoping to make it a great day, or at least a so so day. My migraines are awful, and I feel like I always have a headache! Maybe someday I will be pain free and headache free!
Have faith, and never give up!!
