I really don’t have anything more to tell you than I had before. After speaking to the Neurologist she ordered a bunch of lab work. She needs the lab work to compare to somethings that were found on my CAT scan and MRI. She also wrote me an RX to help with my headaches. She said it would take a few days to get into my system. She also said to start with one pill for the first 2 weeks and then move up to 2 pills.
After leaving her office I felt more confused and upset. I went in there hoping for answers and I should have known it would not be that easy. I feel like I wasted $200 to just get told I need more tests. Oh well, it has to be done. I stopped my the Lab to see just how much the lab work would cost…ugh around $550! So, I’ll have to wait til next Friday to get those done.
I picked up my RX from Walmart and it only cost $8.00. I took the little pill right before I was ready to go bed. I thought I would lay in bed for a bit and read. About 15 minutes later I was out cold. I was dead to the world. Today I am sluggish and unmotivated. I have a lot to do and y’all that I need to do things for are just going to have to hang in there. I’m not being this way on purpose. I truly want to function at 100%.
So, no answers as of yet. I did learn somethings though. This totally could be Fibromyalgia and the headaches could be caused from the pain I have on a daily basis. It could also be Rheumatoid Arthritis, Lupus, Vitamin B-12 Deficiency among a thousand other things. The labs will tell her a lot more about what is happening in my body and brain. Once we get an answer we can begin treating or taking care of the problem.
One of the things found on my CAT Scan and MRI are signs of a condition called osmotic demyelination. I’m not quite sure what it means. I tried googling it but the things I read I am just like durrrrr and the drool begins. I’m trying to avoid Dr. Google and wait for answers from my Doctor.
Thanks for all the well wishes. It means a lot!
