Okay. So, my neurologist’s nurse finally called me back today from Tuesday regarding my reaction to tramadol. Then she says my doctor wants to prescribe toradol. I’m allergic to NSAIDs. I told my doctor that and put it on my intake form.
She says,“Well, what type of reaction do you have exactly?” So, I explain my reaction of severe stomach pain and diarrhea. I was also advised by my gastro doc (when I had my gallbladder out) to not take NSAIDs. I had to have my repeat endo and colonoscopy last month and he said to still avoid NSAIDs.
Then she said she’ll call me back, that was at 8:30am. I waited 2.5 months to see this doctor and now I feel I’m getting back to square one.
My GP prescribed me prednisone until I get to my orthopedic doctor next Friday for my shoulder (tendinitis, bursitis and partial tear) and I am miserable on it.
Typically I eat once a day due to my face pain, but on prednisone I feel so hungry. Eating more is reeking havoc on my face. Plus, the insomnia from taking prednisone is nuts.
Just had to vent. I do have Tylenol 3, but it’s not providing much relief. I just pray my face will just CALM DOWN because I can’t afford another ER trip.
I know I’m not this doctors only patient, but seriously.
