I had my appointment with the neurologist today. It was a total bust. Thankfully I do NOT have multiple sclerosis. Unfortunately I have been UN diagnosed with Trigeminal Neuralgia. This doctor does not know what is wrong with me. He basically handed me a prescription and sent me on my way. He had my blood drawn to check for Lupus and Rheumatoid arthritis. I do NOT think I have those things. Not at all. I am really kind of upset right now. I'm SO glad I don't have MS - but if I don't have TN then what the heck is going on with me? The doctor told me I was really quite healthy (in all honesty I think he was surprised that a fat chick had good blood pressure - all that running has to pay off SOMEWHERE right?!). I honestly don't know what to do now. I am NOT taking that medication. How can you take medication when you don't even know what is WRONG with you? That just seems asinine. I've been living with the pain for four years now, I guess I'll just have to live like this forever. UGH, I feel so defeated.
Oh - and on top of that joyous news... as we were driving home I kept getting this prickly sensation at the back of my throat. When I looked at my tongue it looked WRONG. I mean really weird. It was all white and almost hairy looking. I totally freaked. We went to a regular doctor and I found out that I have thrush. Seriously? Should I just go buy a freaking lottery ticket? I seem to be winning the strange problem category lately. So now I have another nasty freaking medication to take in order to get rid of the thrush. I got the thrush because of the medication I was on for my colon infection. REALLY? I'm 37... I'm not supposed to be freaking falling apart already. Oh Lord, I need a vacation. Maybe in a few years I'll get one too.
Well, that's my story for today. It's been a LONG day. I have a buttload of Christmas gifts to finish up. Colin has off for the next week. AAGGHHH I'm losing my marbles! Thanks for reading!!! Hopefully my life will get back to normal soon. I can't take much more of this excitement!
Thanks for reading! Have a great night! -Monica
