i talked to gracie mom just a little bit ago on the phone for about an hr, i told her i would put her on speaker tomorrow when i get my results back from hiv.. LOL.... i will be a floating zombie going there tomorrow prolly. o yeah! can't wait!! like she says, whats the worst thing that could happen.. you end up taking 15 pills a day... made me think.
but seriously, your question.. i started coughing before the rash showed up, i coughed for about 2 days and my chest was becoming very sore and tight, i didn't have any mucas coming up so i knew it wasn't in my chest but in my throat. i was like what do i have now. . went to the ER and told them, they blew me off as having allergies also, i said give me a chest x ray to be safe, they did, it was fine.. they did prescribe doxy to me though. And i'll say this, the night i took doxy, the very next day i look down at my feet and i see a bulls eye rash.. wierd huh?
i was getting new symptoms everyday, some where on top of the symptoms i already had which was making life miserable.. sometimes the cough wouldn't happen all day, and i felt good. then the next day it starts up again..
so then the trigger went off, i went symptom surfing. and ended up here really.. and now i'm running every test known to man or woman. Scary tests or not scary test.. i have to get to the bottom of what is making me feel bad.. and you should too..
after i get my results back tomorrow *hopefully, cross fingers they are good* i'll be calling and setting up an appointment with a LLMD here in missouri.. and full force into it..
