In June of 2019 I went to the ER after feeling poorly for a week or so. I was weak, tired, shakey, confused and just wanted o sleep. ER told me I was dehydrated, gave me a liter of fluid, some HC and sent me home. It took the ER nurse four times to stick me, and when I suggested she call someone from the lab to help…….she got very testy. My blood pressure was very high, and the doctor was more worried about that than my AI. He told me that in Addisonian Crisis BP went low….not high. I shook my finger at him and said “not necesarlly”, that was when he decided he didn’t like me. (I must note that my endo is not on staff at the hospital I went to)
At home, I felt no better. Weeks went by with no improvement in my symptoms. I was in daily contact wih my endo by phone, and she couldn’t figure out what was going on either. I went from my bed, to my recliner to the couch. I updosed, drank liters of water, increased my salt intake, and slept a lot. I stayed in this “flu-like” condition for weeks and weeks.
I have not feel well since.
It seems that the ups and down of this disease are just stuck……no ups….just downs. I haven’t had a good day in months and months.
On top of the AI, I developed bursitis in my hip, and nothing has helped that either. Pills, physical therapy, ablations, and steroid shots. My pain level can go from a three to an eight……….I know the pain is stressing out my body, which isn’t helping me at all.
I am going to try and start blogging again, with not so much bitching and complaining!
