Apologies don't mean to bring anyone down, just wanted to shoot the breeze with people who will understand.
So my migraine situation continues, this has been 8 days although gladly today it's downgrading to headache so feel like a winner today. I've not taken my methotrexate as instructed as from now on i obey the rules and not going rogue 😜
I had my fortnightly bloods done yesterday and 8am this morning get a text from GP saying I've been booked into have a blood test Friday 🤷♀️
OK so I'm guessing my bloods from yesterday are abnormal, so I phone GP and ask receptionist were any of my blood results abnormal why am I having a repeat test; She laughs says I'm booked in for Friday... yes I know that thats not what I asked (I didn't say it like this to her but come on lady im anxious here) all she can tell me is what's on the screen and GP requested repeat. I'm frustrated.
Now my mind is escalating things up, I use to work in the lab and the fact they got the result back so quick (gp asked yesterday same day blood was taken for repeat) means they flagged it as urgent and it needed action.
Sometimes a little knowledge is worse than none at all; I swear my brain is sending me pictures of me in A&E being attended to by George Clooney in ER 😁
Last Friday my migraine was so bad I wanted to bang my head against the wall to get some relief, I have been asking my GP for help and was prescribed sumatriptan but it didn't work, I phoned again Monday and they prescribed amitriptyline but I felt there was an underlying cause and they just wanted to give me pills. Then I start doubting myself as I didnt listen to medical staff before (haven't taken the amitriptyline though) and I should do as they suggest.
Now after my blood test I am wondering if this might be the reason for my bad head. I'm overthinking things aren't I? Since having RA I've gotten so much more anxious and I don't like it.
Thanks for being here for the brain dump, hugs x
