My body sucks... [Jun. 28th, 2002|07:56 pm]

Went to the doctor twice this week. One was a scheduled appointment for a couple of things that have been bothering me lately. The other was something that came up suddenly and I wanted looked at immediately.

Things you don't want to hear when you're at the doctor:
"Hmm. I've never seen that before."

So, I'm now on antibiotics (for the thing never seen before. Trust me, you don't want more details than that...). I also decided, along with my doctor, to go back on medication for my panic attacks. They've been getting less manageable the past few months, even with everything I learned from my cognitive therapy. So, I've started taking Zoloft again. Now, I get to go through the one week or so period of adjustment while the Zoloft builds up in my body. I went through this once before. It's not fun. Dry mouth, slightly nauseous. Whee.

Oh yeah, and I'm still on Zantac for my acid reflux.

Finally (that's right, I'm not done...), I got an X-ray of my elbow, to see what's causing all of that pain there. There's nothing obviously wrong, so I'll be getting a nerve conduction test sometime in the near future (probably a week or two). No medication for that, because the doctor's afraid of mixing too many meds, especially right as I start on Zoloft...

But, I can see a light at the end of the tunnel for most of these things. I just need to get through the next week or two...Wish me luck.
