Not gonna lie, I’ve kind of come to hate WordPress the past month or so, with all the writing I do for IGM on it. It’s not like I hate my job. It’s just that staring at a white screen all the time gets to me.
Anyway, a lot has happened since I last updated. [...]
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 [...]
Before I begin this epic adventure in writing, I want to point out a few things:
Without follow-up from any of the involved parties, this falls under the umbrella of “speculation.” Because there are details that were added to try to “legitimize” the claim, some of the folks named in this may not actually be [...]
My dad picked me up, and we went to get sushi (well, I got sushi…he got some combination plate with teriaki chicken, seafood, veggies, and rice). I actually got him to try a piece of my tempura shrimp roll. He pronounced it “okay.”
After that, we had freakin’ 3.5 hours to kill before the movie, [...]
…but not exactly pleasant.
It turns out the combination of antibiotics I’m on have the unfortunate interaction to cause ALL OF THE GASTROINTESTINAL DISTRESS.
ALL OF IT.
I’m nauseated, my gallbladder hurts, my stomach feels icky, my intestines hurts, and I’m starting to amass items in the bathroom that will amuse me between bouts of [...]
I’m starting back on antibiotic treatment ASAP. It’s going to be more aggressive, with variants that also address Bartonella (which we can’t rule out – it was a possibility in May, as well) added to the mix. Instead of 2 at a time, I’ll now be on 3.
The mastoid-cell infection was the harbinger. It [...]
I got here intending to simply write about what a smart (doctor) friend told me about the weird cavities I pointed out in the last post (they’re called mastoid air cells, more on that in a second), but when I pulled up the images on the CD that was given to me, I found a [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
I’ve been to the ER 3 times in the space of 13 months.
January 2013, it was food poisoning.
July 2013, I was having trouble breathing, which we finally attributed to my medication interacting.
Yesterday was just full of surprises all around.
I woke up at around 7am on Wednesday with my stomach feeling oddly [...]
