Lamictal apparently produces vivid nightmares.

I don’t remember that side effect from last time, but I was also not sleeping very well, anyway (school, wedding planning, etc.), so there’s no telling.

But one of the things I looked up was whether Lamictal causes nightmares, and lo and behold, there were so many links from forums of people complaining about it […]

Vertigo, migraine, CT, all that fun stuff.

Last month, before my surgery (and part of the reason I was so concerned with possible hormonal involvement, anyway), I got a bad migraine that manifested first with vertigo. The headache persisted for over a week. I was put on fioricet, which is apparently very good for some folks, but didn’t help me much. It […]

I have to have surgery, again! *jazz hands*

It turns out that while I may be experiencing symptoms of PMS and an actual period, the bleeding was not, in fact, from endometrium or anything like that.

The short story is that I may have a suture granuloma (rare-ish for the location, because of COURSE it is). The doctor called it a granuloma, then […]

Literally the LAST THING I thought would happen, again.

This month, I’ve experienced the following symptoms (moreso the past week):

bloating migraine w/vertigo and nystagmus unexplained weight gain in short period of time mood change lower abdominal cramping

I attributed them all to different things (mostly gas, exhaustion, and allergies). Then I silently freaked out about why the hell I’m gaining 10 pounds in […]

Surgery update…now with 100% more flatulence.

I went to my colonoscopy consult, today. I was afraid he was going to want to do another physical exam, but he said, “Nah, we’re going to be getting up-close-and-personal with you soon using a camera tube, so we’ll let you go without, today.” At least…he has a sense of…humor?

I will update you on […]

Perfect menstrual metaphor. PERFECT.

This was originally a photo/screen-shot, but I’m going to type it out as a quote – attributed to someone called “robotsquid” on Tumblr, we have the following description of what a period is like for most women (yes, even those whose periods are relatively tame):

Seriously though your period is like coming home one day […]

Lyme Update! WHARRGARRBL. It’s been a bit.

I went to my Lyme doc, today.

I basically begged him to switch my meds, for two reasons: the doxy makes me puke, and the metronidazole gives me an accent.

He pointed out that changing my abx would “throw the Lyme off,” which is honestly true, from what I understand, so I’m basically going to […]

Lyme Journal – General Update

The last update I made was at the end of June, and honestly, I was having trouble keeping up with a daily journal, because some things stay the same, but when things change, they do so quickly and then go back, so I forget about them if I don’t have a notebook handy, and I […]

Okay, guys and gals, here’s the first surgery update. There will be much more to come.

First, I would like to give a big ol’ shout-out to Dr. Dan Martin of UT Medical Group. He’s one of the best doctors I’ve ever had the pleasure of dealing with, particularly in regards to something so unpleasant, and every step of the way, he’s listened to me – this doesn’t mean he’s agreed […]

Surgery photos!

I’m putting them under a cut, because I know not everyone wants to look at them, but I find them ridiculously fascinating, and I know there are family members and friends who’ve been wanting to see them, so here you go!

There is little to no blood in any of these. They’re just…organs and scar […]
