Miserable and not sure why....

Tuesday, November 06, 2012

Obviously, I haven't been on SparkPeople in at least a week and a half or more until today. I hadn't been feeling like myself for a few days and by last Thursday night everything got sooo much worse really fast. I've had horrible stomach pains and nausea and due to those things, I have barely been eating or drinking anything for the past 4 days. My mom was messing around on her computer on Friday night and decided to look up my symptoms. Well, remember a few months back when I had bursitis in my knee? Apparently, that can become infected and cause some of the same symptoms I've been having, so we went to the ER the next morning. The ER Doctor literally said to me "we don't have an MRI here, so what do you want me to do?"....uh wow....I couldn't believe that. Anyway, he did some labs and they came back stating that I did not have any sort of infection, but I did have very high levels of inflamation (which isn't shocking considering I've had this injury for about 8 months now and my knee has been swollen that entire time), so he sent me home with some sort of steroid (which I have taken before for asthma issues), vicodin, and an anti-nausea medication. I haven't been able to get the vicodin or the steroids yet because we can't afford them, but I was able to at least get the anti-nausea medicine which does help a good deal. I actually ate a decent size dinner last night and I ate breakfast this morning for the first time in 4 days....I'm still have issues though :/ I mean, I have no appetite whatsoever, I'm very weak, I'm super dizzy, and I just feel blah in general :/ I'm hoping to be able to see my regular Doctor sometime soon and maybe she can figure out what's wrong with me....
