Well I'm down to 15mg and dr. says I can do 10 after 10 days (which will be Friday).
I still feel miserable in the mornings - nausea, dizziness, stomach pain, and pretty much feel like I'm going to pass out at my desk and wish I could curl up in a ball and sleep somewhere. I seem to feel better after eating so maybe I just need to force myself to eat more in the mornings to balance out all those drugs.
I have an office appointment in a month to discuss further treatment options and I'm supposed to get my Imuran levels tested again in the meantime. (Another $200 bill when I haven't paid the last one since my insurance doesn't cover this.
I think I've finally accepted the idea of... er.. "bottom treatment" and want to ask about
that option. I'm wondering if I should call and see if I can get a prescript
ion over the phone or just wait until the appointment to bring it up. And if I do enemas, is it something I can do for a week or two to heal up and be done or am I stuck for life?
Also started taking slippery elm bark, too soon to tell if it's having any good effect.
