Thanks so much everyone. I think I figured out the culprit. I'll still be making an appt. to see my dr. I am on estrogen patches because of my hysterectomy due to endo and cysts. A couple of weeks ago my dr put me on a lower dose of estrogen, and it was shortly after that that I started feeling "off". I put on my original regular dose of estrogen patch last night and now I'm feeling like myself again. I was having serious hot flashes too, so I have a feeling it was the hormones, or lack there of that was causing my feeling weird. I haven't had a hot flash and have been feeling normal again. Thanks so much for all your advice. It really helps to know there are people who care and have advice. I know it's not in place of a dr, but it's still good to know.
On the plus side, my pain med's are still working, knock on wood. I'm on hydrocodone 10/325 3-4 times a day, 800 mg ibuprofen, and for breakthrough pain-oxycodone 10mg. Seems to be doing the job, granted I still have some days where I need to rest more than others. But I'm def. at a good place right now.
However I do need to see a neurologist about my cervical spine, it's been causing problems with headaches, arm pain, etc...for some time now and I know I need to get it checked out. I'll keep you all posted as to what I figure out on that end.
SmurfyShadow- I see you're the "walking medical mystery". OMG, that is SO ME. I don't know how many times I've heard doctors say "we've never had a patient with this many complications, problems, etc...."
Have a great day everyone, and again, thank you so much
