I was fully prepared 7 page packet of neatly typed history, illnesses, and all the specialist (6 of them) and then a list of test that I had come up with . I handed it to her as I figured she could read faster than I could talk and that way everything was covered. As I sat there and she listened to my lungs still (wheezing a month later). As we discussed different things quickly , the doctor comments about my heart rate not being good (first time in almost 20 years) (heart rate runs 110-141 after sitting still for 20 minutes . She asked is I had ever been tested for something concerning the heart beat, I said no ( I hate fibro fog) because I don't remember the type of test. As we continue to speak , she walks over to me and looks at my hands and see splotches, she asked me about them. I said that no one ever made a big deal out of it , so I knew they existed but never did anything about them. She then started saying about 10 things she thought it could be,ofcourse my mind went huh before I heard the last one being lupus. Then we talked about the Thyroid, and all the different things that "thyroid" covers and she didn't say I was dumb or treated me as thought I didn't know anything. It was weird she respected my knowledge. She switched some meds and added a few , but I am still on Lyrica . So I am set up to take 10 test and take some predisone and then in a few weeks begin my next batch of testing. It was a nice treat.
I have to ask if anyone feels the same way about Lyrica though , it feels as though it is destroying my stomach lining , has given me the "metal " taste that still hasn't went away one time after the first dose with food, drinlk or none. I have also noticed it really messes with my thinking,I am also twitching but thought that might be the Fibro. I am starting a small stutter. Is anyone else experienceing this?
