Guest Mary from OH Posted March 3, 2005 Report Share Posted March 3, 2005 Well, I spent last night in ER. I look like I may be headed back today. On Tuesday I saw both my PCP and my neuro. My PCP dx me with a horrendous sinus infection. The rapid strep came back negative (but, I'm still not convinced I don't have strep). They're growing the longer culture, I'll find out tomorrow. She put me on Biaxin, which I've been on before, but it's been a few years. This is my third antibiotic within less than a month. The same day I (finally) saw my neuro. He decided I've been having too many migraines (no fooling!!) and that I've been needing to take too much medication (which he has prescribed) and that I'm probably in a rebound cycle. I was only taking them every other day if needed. Never 2 days in a row. So, he decided to take me off all my rescue meds (triptans and narcotics) and put me on oxycontin. This scared the pants off of me. He explained that it would be for a short time to get me out of the pain cycle I was in. I kept trying to explain that it was because of all the drastic, rapid weather changes for the last 6 months or so. I started both the meds the same day. I started itching like CRAZY!!!! I got a migraine from #$%^& (I've already had one for 2 days because of the weather fronts). By evening when I took my 2nd dose of antibiotics, I started vomitting. I had begged my husband to take me to ER when he got home from work. I THOUGHT he was feeding my daughter and then taking me. I was wrong. So then, I had to wait until he put her to bed. Then, he finally called a neighbor for me and she took me. I couldn't stop throwing up. I couldn't even keep water down. It took them SO long to see me. After about 2 hours of waiting, a dr FINALLY saw me. He gave me 4 meds per IV. IT WORKED!! THANK GOD!!! My migraine stayed away until I woke up this AM. I called my neuro's office. He is in the other office today. The recpt finally called me back and said to go to ER. I told her I was already there!! She said she would "try" to get ahold of him, but that he was seeing patients in his other office. I could just scream!!!I hope my ramblings make some kind of sense!! Marissa was only at school about 25 minutes and I get a call from the school saying that her belly hurt!! Great!! She's already had 3 intestinal ileus this month (whoops, February!!)!! I do need a vacation!! She's been ok since.Today is our BUSY day!! She has her Tiny Travelers class after Kindergarten. Then I have to go teach. Then she has tap class and then Ballet class!! ARRGGHH!!!I wonder if I should carry my "puke bucket" around with me today?!!Thanks for listening to me vent!!You should have heard me trying to explain to the ER dr last night about POTS!! It was actually amusing!! I don't know WHAT the heck he was talking about, but he started to talk about some kind of "spots" on your back from TB??? Obviously, he had NO CLUE!!!!
