It is always a very difficult few days before we go for check ups. I hope all goes well for you. Please let me know how you get on. I will be praying for you that you get the all clear and can stop worrying.

I have got a blood test tomorrow to try and find out why all my hair is still falling out and my skin is so bad. We have got heavy snow and I am worried about going outside and falling in it. I do not have a car and have to walk and take a bus to the surgery for the test. The pavements are never gritted only the roads.

I am not doing so well. My depression has reached epic proportions. Dr Cox has increased my
Venlafaxin by another 75mgms. I am going to see her tomorrow for an update. My hair is falling out in handfuls. My skin and scalp is so itchy. Sleep is haywire.

No sign of the problems with Eltroxin getting better. managed to get 12 tablets from the pharmacy. Do not know what to do?

My venlafaxine has been changed to tablets. Hope it is the same. I have been on them for about 20 years. I only have a few Eltroxin left and the factory is not supplying any at the moment getting very worried.

Had a less than satisfactory visit at the Dr yesterday. he said that other nasty Dr does not want me to stay on the Eltroxin but to go back to the cheap nasty stuff. I said I would not go back to it. Stailmate. Lets see what happens when I put in a script for it. Sorted out the topiramate. Final dose change to 100mgs in a months time should end the problem. No diuretic. Wont increase my Eltroxin? till my pulse goes down. I said it was up because of aggravation. he said to get it checked again to see if it was lower. If it was I could go up to 75mcg then check again in 6 weeks. I said I would wait till I got back from Israel. My blood results have stayed at 1.6 no change. They have stabilized? I wonder if they will start going up again?

I made a complete fool of myself at the surgery over a prescription. I had run out of my pills, and despite every precaution on my part to make sure it would be ready for me, of course it was not. Back to the drawing board.

Going for a blood test today. Increased the Topamax to twice a day for my migraines. This is the third week. 3 headaches since I started on it.

Got a copy letter from the neurologist. He is telling the GP what medication to give me. Nice to have a copy of his findings.

The Dr was very nice. he told me that the problem was probably due to the fact that I have now had Bells palsy in both eyes. This has made them partially paralysed and so I do not blink enough. he has given me some non preservative eye drops to use 6 times a day. indefinitely.
Tomorrow I see the Neurologist.

The Dr was a real pig. I have got a blood test in Ten days time. he said I was depressed because of the palsy. he said all the pain was muscular due to my age and arthritis and to take asprin. he said he thought I did not need thyroid medicine that I probably only had a virus. he said I was not so ill that I needed to take up an urgent apt. I wanted to crawl into a hole and die.

The migraines came back a couple of days ago. last night I took a sumatriptan plus some soluble paracetamol. I try never to take an analgesic but I needed it last night. I had the migraine plus the pain from the side of my neck. After a shaky start I am much better this late morning. Very weak though.

I stopped the steroids from today. Such a relief. I have to still take the meds for balance once I am able to walk outside again. I also take Omneprazole, statins, venlafaxine levothyroxin and sumatriptan. A lot of drugs with probably a lot of side affects.

It would be very helpful if we could talk about what medicine and treatment we are receiving for our conditions. Maybe we could brainstorm a little and find some results that might be of use to ease some or all of our symptoms.
