Sigh...don't bother: they found NOTHING. Nada. Zilch. No parasites. Parasite-free. Parasiteless.
You would think I'd be happy for this news, but it's actually depressing. Can't take a few courses of Flagyl to get rid of parasites that don't exist.
All they found was a bit of yeast in there and Meg is putting me on a four-week course of Diflucan once a week to get rid of that, but she doesn't think it's causing the illness. She also went over the food allergy results, which were not very exciting and showed some very mild reactions to most dairy products. She wanted me to make an appointment with the naturopath at her office to start on an elimination diet, but I just couldn't make that appointment today. Too tired of all the run-around right now. I don't think it's food intolerances causing this thing, whatever it is. She seemed to think it was pretty unlikely as well, but I guess she wanted to offer something.
She did look at my hip and diagnosed me with bursitis; wants an x-ray and then a fluoroscopy-guided cortisone injection to decrease the inflammation. So hopefully that will start feeling better soon.
I looked at her helpless face and said, "It's bound to get better or worse with time. Now it's just a matter of waiting." She seemed to agree that's all we can do at this point.
