I have gone into total meltdown. I can remember vaguely how I felt last summer when I may or may not have had a TIA (all the symptoms but nothing showed up in tests and my inr was ok)which I gradually recovered from, , but the period from September to December is a total blank so can't remember how I was. Had a nasty virus over Christmas, which then lasted five or six weeks and Ihad to go to a homeopath to help get rid of it .
Since then my body has been throwing anything it can at me - headaches, spots on my face, viral symptoms (I spend the beginning and end of the day with a sore throat and swollen glands) appalling fatigue and memory problem, and aches and pains.. My inr has been around 4.0 so it is not that, although I do notice if there is a sudden drop even if it is still within range. Can't take plaquenil because I'm very allergic but take Mepacrine instead, but wondering if after 11yrs it is losing its effect.
My doctor suggested I may have depression but I don't think I have although am wavering over his suggestion of CBT to help me cope day to day.. I have to go back to see him next week but there doesn't seem much that he can do, although I am going to ask if he can suggest anything for the headaches. My 91yr old dad was put on beta blockers 20yrs ago and his migraines vanished so might ask about trying these.
I pace myself as much as I can and am going to have another go at losing weight but if anyone has any ideas of how to cope, especially with the fatigue it would be helpful.
