Dizzy and falling apart.

I'm so dizzy that I can't lay down. I thought it was getting better, but today and tonight was worse. I'm very sick to my stomach from the room spinning. My new meds should be here today, I hope. I was out of the ones for the dizziness.

I got a call from my Doctors office and have to go in on the 13th to see him about my blood results. Seems that my Thyroid is too high, my Liver profile is too high, my B-12 (I have Pernicous Anemia) is too low and my Potasium is way too low and something about uric acid being too high too. Sounds like I'm falling apart, eh? This is the second year in a row my liver profile has been bad, so they may have to talk about taking me off a med. We'll have to see. *sigh* For all of you medical people, the med I'm talking about is Phenobarbital. I'm very sensitive to the other drugs that can be used, so I've been on Phenobarb for about 25 years.

I hope you're all having a better day then I am. Have a great Tuesday. :)

Hugs, Patt

((hugs Patt))

It sounds like you're in agony right now, hon. I wish there was something I could do to help. Hang in there, the new meds should help soon...

*hugs you* Am so sorry you're feeling so badly. I hope that they can reconcile your problems without you losing the med that works for you - that's always difficult, but especially when you have such limited choices and such strong symptoms. Thinking about you!

O.O That sucks, Patt. I hope the new meds help with the dizziness and the doctors figure out something with the long term stuff. :-(

Thank you, Caro dee. :) I'll be just fine, I'm sure. The tests results sort of threw me for a loop. I'm sure everything will be just fine.

Oh hon, I'm so sorry that you're feeling so poorly.
I realize that you have drug sensitivity, but there have been several new AEDs to hit the market in the last few years. Maybe one of those will work for you.
Take care and I hope you're feeling better soon.

Thank you, V. :) I'm about to check out some online before I go to the doctor. I'll see what the adverse effects are and go from there.
