Diplopia that I had hoped was just a mini-flare kind of thing is still here 10 days or so later and getting worse, not better. Add to that the fact that two fingers on my right had and my right toe not moving on command yesterday for the first time and I'm suspecting a new flare is trying to sneak its way into my life.
Yesterday I had an appointment with my neuro that I have to drive an hour and a half to see. When we got there they looked at us oddly and asked if we hadn't received a call that the neuro was not in. No, we had not received any calls and no one else was available to see me. So, another hour and a half home in blinding sun and 80 something degree weather and still no answers about whether this may or may not be the beginning of a flare. I have a new appointment for next Wednesday. We'll see how it goes until then.
Eyes: killing me and right eye twitching/moving (weird, I know), colors washing out AGAIN in one eye
Moments of vertigo
Visible cramps/spasms on my ribcage
Stuff not working
Multiple parts buzzing and tingling
Stabbing head pains in several different points
I hope that this time someone will have the courage to give me a CD diagnosis.
*bangs head on desk*
Now to think of something positive... My blood pressure is back to normal after being out of control from Prednisone. It was up to 180/140 at the highest and 150/110 as an average before I started taking hawthorn. I've been taking it for about 2 weeks and I'm back to about 120/80. Seems it might have actually helped. I've also lost about 2.5 kg in the last 3 weeks for unexplained reasons. I'll take that one though! :)
