Cynical Woman!

I have been suffering from unexplained joint pain since September. And I know from previous medical issue that I should not expect a diagnosis any time soon. These things take time… a LOT of time.

But I do expect that when I’m having an allergic reaction to the medication the doctor prescribed, that maybe someone notice that rather than blame my allergic reaction on my hair dye. Especially when the allergic reaction in question started in the groin area, and no, I don’t dye my pubic hair.

Fortunately, I figured out why I was all red and splotchy even if the doctor didn’t. And I feel much better now. Even the joint pain seems to be doing better. I have no idea why my joints feel better, just like I had no idea why they were hurting so badly to begin with. But hey, I’ll take what I can get.

  1. Oh wow, really sorry to hear you had to go through that Helen. Good thing you were able to figure it out on your own.

    My girlfriend has been having thyroid issues over the last 6 months. Some of the doctors prescriptions have driven her to the breaking point. Especially when they tell her everything is “normal” when it’s obvious to us that her symptoms are not normal at all.

    It’s often been up to us to figure out what’s going on since the doctor’s have had such a hard time figuring out what needs to be done. So she/I/we can relate to what you were going through!

  2. Solmadrid,

    I hope your girlfriend is able to get some relief soon! I have finally started to feel better, but a lot of that has been because I did my own research, saw more doctors who would actually talk to me, and then came up with a lot of changes on my own. It still takes time, but I think taking things into my own hands is part of what made me feel better.

    Good luck to you guys!
