thank you all for your comments! oh my gosh, i am so glad to hear from so many with the same thing. i thought for sure i was losing IT this time!!!! i will lose it if i try to address each one of you individually but your stories are all too familiar. yesterday, i had to drive myself to the doctor and i kept thinking about how i was going to get out of jail if i got pulled over, LOL!!!
des, please keep me posted on what your neuro has to say. i have to wait 5 days before i can make the appt. was this a gradual thing for you or did it start suddenly?
babs, how did it come about for you? and how did they find out it was related to lupus?
4 months barbara lee?! as if you needed that on top of everything else...i know you have had the worse time and i really am at a loss for what to say about it. but...i do want to say that you are so kind to lend your support to the rest of us! what a strong woman you must be. i barely have the strength to read posts anymore and my problems are relatively mild in comparison so...thank you.
sue, no new meds so definitely not the cause. you are so lucky to have only had one flare to date. it must have been pretty bad though for you to get a diagnosis? hope you stay feeling good for a while. this is a tough disease to live with! i have had a lot of stress in my life recently and seem to have "overlapping" flares. it will get better though, i just know it (i am divorcing the stress, LOL!).
well all, the pcp i saw monday offered me up antidepressants and actually before she could even get it all out, i was shaking my head emphatically, "NO." i couldn't believe she had the nerve to finish her sentence and then the impudence to bring it up again before i left. this because i was crying because the room wouldn't stop spinning for 2 days, throwing up and no sleep! i swear these people never get it!!! i actually felt sorry for her, LOL!!
thank you again to everyone!!
