Thanks to you all. I'm finally starting to drop weight on the isoniazid and not really interested in food as much (except sweets), and this is OFF prednisone. But listening to what you guys said and remembering what I went through on interferon, which is an Immune system booster which made me nuts having AI disease, I remembered that the main feature was this anxiety. And it got really bad.
My liver enzymes are starting to climb a little more, not that bad though, but the honeymoon is over. I have four refills left of isoniazid and Ithink I'll make it.
Some of what drove me nuts on Interferon were high TPOs (like hashi s enceph), liver inflammation causing enceph, and endo total malfunction. Unfortunately, I was never offered steroids. But now, from experience, I know that the steroids help the liver inflammation, and the high TPOs, and are a big component to my endo malfunction.
My face is total red and my heart feels like its going to jump from my chest and my legis swollen. Time for steroids.
I started the pack now. I'm just so scared being on the isoniazid, but feel that this may be the thing tha helps. My body is fighting infection so so hard right now, fighting something. I think I an limp through four months if I can just get a break and like you say, nip this in the bud.
Thank you so much for informing me and also reminding me of what a bad flare is like. I haven't had this feeling this bad for a long time thank God and you get so caught up in it. Now IM" so anxious, I'm scared to even take what the doc gave me.
I'm going to cut back on the B6 maybe if the steroids don't seem to help, and go back on the 50s. A 100 once a day isn't so much, but the other post got me thinking. It's probably just the isoniazid, which causes nervous system damage. Some people lik this feeling. I do not.
Thank you and God bless you and I'm off to spend my last bit of credit to get my son some epilspy med--he was hit in the head with a hammer and his backpack stolen with all his epilepsy meds in it--and then he started hearing voices. Now he is in a hospital and on some pretty heavy meds and they are screaming for me to come up with money and medicine I just don't have. I have to drive there today and give smoe medicine. I'm afraid to tell my dad how in debt I am to him because of this. He would freak out. First my radiator broke, 500bucks, and now this whole mess, running into hundreds. I just can't seem to catch up.
I'm sorry to unload. I didnt mean to. But this is likely why my world is exploding right now. After today, I can relax some. I can only do the best I can. Thanks to you all again and I didn't even realize Thanksgiving was this week, hope you enjoy it. My son will not be with us wich makes me sad (he is 20 though), but it also takes the stress off my bf and me to make a big mess and cook all day.
