Little bit of a health update, it's been a crazy month.
I've been having some really odd symptoms for the last month or so. It started with vertigo and earache then turned into a sore throat, swollen glands, sore armpits and boobs, exhaustion, back ache, sore legs, stomach pains, pains in my ribs, blockages, green stoma output, more earache, tounge ache then migraines and vomiting. Literally every part of my face malfunctioned one piece at a time.
I've been trying to see a doctor who knows me since it started and I've been unsuccessful. I've seen 3 doctors who dont know my medical history. None of them diagnosed me with anything but prescribed me 2 types of vertigo medications, diflam mouthwash, oral thrush medication and a strong antihistamine. One even tried to give me antidepressants.
So today I finally managed to get in to see my oncologist. She was brilliant. She did a full body examination and has booked me a ct and ultrasound scan and suggested an MRI if they show nothing and my pain continues. Shes taken 2 sets of bloods and arranged a follow up next week. She also suggested that I could have glandular fever which would explain all my swollen glands and arm/face pains. This will be confirmed by the blood test.
Honestly I am so God damn grateful. Finally someone is listening to me and getting me checked over. I was literally on the brink of a mental breakdown and my medical anxiety was through the roof!!!
