Yes, my prediction came through and then some! My Dr Put me on AT LEAST two more weeks of rest- my "come and go" fever has her concerned, my BP was very low and HR very high- another concern, my heart working double time sinceBP is so low. Then, when listening to my beathing, she couldnt hear any air on my back until about mid shoulder blade.Sooooo..combine all that with the Fibromyalgia daily issues and the fact my body cannot seem to fight this off, I was given 2 med to be used with a nebulizer at home for 1 month, wanting to get the medicine right into my lungs, and refill the hand held inhaler, more rx cough syrup, ad 3 rounds of lab work 1 full work up panel, , 1 set of xrays and 1 blood test to check my immune system, or immunities, something like that. Done the immunity one, done the xray..full panel in 2 weeks once ive been on these meds a few weeks so she can see true results, not "sick" results.
I still feel awful, sleeping is difficult, nausea still there, my breathing is shallow, the inhaler and nebulizer treatments help a bit, i know once i do those more it will get better. The all over pain and exaustion factor is just crazy. She told me last week AT LEAST 2 more weeks, but Im afraid it may go longer. I may not be contagious anymore, but due to the symptoms and the Fibro factors plus whatever te lab results are will determine how long Im out of commision. She is concerned if Im not improving, or just improving very slowly, and try to re-join the world too soon, I could end up back down very soon, or worse.
Its frustrating and lonely being sick and disconnected for so long, but im very glad she is being cautious.
I have a call in to her right now waiting to hear back...my re check isn't for two weeks, but the sleep, and the pain is making me nuts-plus wondering about the return to work issu, they will need to know if she wants to extend the original 2 weeks out to 3..pending lab results, or my continuing issues . UGH!
I appreciate the chat with you...being this sick is scary for me. The Fibro sick im used to, but this crap on top of it, makes me afraid. Getting another opinion and being re-assured of my concern being valid helped, and Im grateful.
