a riddle...mystery..enigma

It seems no medical doctor can figure me out.

I'm having symptoms similar to an episode from a few years ago (I'll spare you the gory details), so I went to the doc this afternoon. Still a mystery. He prescribed antibiotics and I'm hoping they magically clear it up again. If the sample I provide them shows evidence of something bad, well, there will be plenty of specialist visits in the future. Please, no. I've just about maxed out my sick time this year, and it's only August.

It's like this with so many things. The eyeball I shouldn't be able to see out of...the mind-numbing headaches that no one can melt away...and now this thing is back in all its glory. I just have to remember that I can see out of my eye, there are plenty of drugs I can take to alleviate the headaches, and antibiotics should help. Plus I'm not disabled, my mind is fully functioning, and I have lots of people who love me. Hard to remember all that when you're hugging the toilet, though.

Luckily, only a $15 copay and $10 for meds.

No word from the job interview front yet!

    I, too, was a mystery patient once. Not very comforting is it? Mine ended in a surgery that found....nothing! Hopefully the antibiotics will do the necessary butt kicking! Good luck!

    Working in the dark here, but have you tried Metamucil bars, one every day? I have had friends and family members who have had similar problems to yours and that has helped. I have another friend who is on a small dose of prednisone daily for her Crohn's or whatever it is. Good luck!

    Kashi, that sounds awful! I hope you're feeling better soon and it's something minor!

    OMG, Boo, that is horrid. A surgery that found nothing?! I'll definitely keep that one in mind...

    They make Metamucil bars? I had no idea. Are they any good? and...can I get a free sample? Hmm, better check that out...

    Thanks robex! Enjoy your vacation! Smile
