Hey ol' timers...yes, I've been lurking in the shadows! How is everyone?
I have something developing under the skin on the external vaginal area close to my bum hole. So much for modesty . I can't see anything externally, however, it feels like a huge pimple. It took up residence about a week ago and today when I pressed on it the area began to itch. Abcess developing? I've been fortunate to have never had one of these lovely things nor a fistula! I don't feel it's an ingrown hair because I would be able to see some irritation externally. If it is an abcess...what should "begin" doing now to keep it from getting worse and how long before / or should I call the GI?
Other news...just had my colonoscopy about 2 weeks ago and everything "looks" normal. Hmmm...I wonder if I had some tissue damage there that could have caused my afore mentioned visitor? According to my Primary, the Imuran/Humira combo coupled with my genetic tendencies threw my cholestrol off the charts. However, Crestor has put it back in control. Migraines have increased and depending on the day could be hormonal, sinus, tension in the muscles of my shoulders/neck from the fibro or dang it, even a low pressure coming through! Grrrrrr! And last but not least I tried to kill myself by ingesting some unidentified form of artificial sweetner the night before last! I hadn't had to take an anti-spasmotic in months prior to that episode! Over all things are pretty well under control. Oh yeah and the biggest news is the last kid is almost out of the house!
She announced her engagement to her significant other a few weeks back. No stress on the wedding....I have until next fall to cover all the details. She has already had one bridezilla moment on me already. I told her she's allowed 9 more!
Nice to touch base again with everyone and for those of who are lurking as I was...stop by and say hello!
