I think I am having a bad reaction to 6mp.. initially I felt fine and that it was helping. Last week my doctor increased my dose to 75mg. From that night for the next four days after that I was continually nauseous. Continually. I called the doctor and he had me come in for some blood work. He told me to try 75mg for one more day and see how I feel.. I decided to do 50mg instead and see how I feel. The next day I felt minimal nausea and the day after, none at all.
But also that day after, I noticed my lower back was starting to itch. I had just come back from the movies (I am Legend, which was decent and I recommend you see!) so I thought maybe it was just something from being at a hot, cramped, movie theater. I had my boyfriend check (because I am overly cautious) and he said there are a few bumps but it's probably nothing. So I ignored it, resisted the urge to itch and continued. Well, Monday I noticed there were more bumps and more itching. Not enough to really bother me, but a little concerned. Christmas morning, intense itching and the rash seems to have started to spread across my lower back. Large raised bumps, and itchy as heck! This morning it's still increasing, more raised bumps and it's really hard to resist itching.. it would just feel so much better! My mom thinks it may be hives.. I'm waiting for it to be 9am so I can call my doctor and go in yet again.. and I guess try something new?
I'm just frustrated, nervous, itchy and angry.
On a positive note - I hope you all had a wonderful xmas!! and thanks for listening :)
