Some of my friends who read the blog already know this, but I'm having some really weird medical issues right now that would definitely be classified in the crazy category. A few months ago, I started taking medicine to treat fibromyalgia. After not taking it last Thursday night, I woke up in the middle of the night with visual hallucinations and voices/buzzing/music in my head. I went to the doctor immediately the next day and have stopped taking the medicine altogether. 8 days later and I'm still having the hallucinations every night and sometimes during the day if I try to rest or nap. I've been to the doctor again this week and agreed to have an MRI on Monday if the hallucinations aren't gone by then. After pressing him, he finally told me that the only thing they'd be looking for on the MRI as a cause for the hallucinations (besides the medication) is a brain tumor. He's confident that it's the medicine and not a brain tumor but even the small chance that it's not the med is making me totally freak out. Like all day and night.
It's been a really hard week for me and I'm feeling more upset and anxious than I've ever felt about anything. I'm just so exhausted and overly emotional and don't care at all right now about sewing or doing anything creative. I know I'm having a big pity party and hopefully it will turn out just to be a reaction to the medicine and I can just look back on this as a time where I totally freaked out unnecessarily. But please keep me in your thoughts. I don't feel at all like myself and am having a really difficult time. Sorry for the downer post. I think I'll go back and watch that Dennis Quaid Starbucks clip again.
