After aLifetime of pain due to radical repair on L5/S1 fusion at 26 caused by Spondylolisthesis .....Heads sheared off screws at 32 .....revision Posterior/Anterior......now 54 on multitude of medications.....immune system compromised....now diagnosed with Hypothryroidism, Reumatoid Artheritis. Osteo Artheritis and Hypolypodeamia ....I was recently hospitalised for 5days of run up tests for Suspected Temporal Arteritis which concluded on last day with Temporal Biopsy on final day and send home the following.....anyway after getting infection in Biopsy Scar (Sepsis) and many Antibiotics.....I am now in deplorable situation....afraid to go to my dr as he was against a Prednisone med being administered at all costs due to spinal situation and dangers of Steroid treatment.....he didn't offer weaning and administered Amatryptaline which had a contra with my Duloxtine .....accidentally got into withdrawal with several of my treatments whilst focusing on treating my head infection.....massive problems.....head ringing like there's a thousand cicadas in there ......symptoms similar to panic attack...I can't balance, touch sensitivity is altered....dropping everything I pick up.....Adrenal System out of whack possibly??? .....I have always been able to rationalise my situations before ....but at the moment I am a walking quivering mess......I refuse to believe that after getting this far, that I am at the end, but that's what it feels like.......I live alone so no distractions other than the usual TV etc, from the tinitus (so far undiagnosed.......profuse perspiration, especially on face.....can't manage my usual home chores .....what should I do????? No no so much that as, has anyone else had this outcome from post surgery head sepsis and will it get better? Could live somehow day to day with Chronic pain...but this is something else totally.....nausea is awful, sinuses completely messed up and infection seems to have lodged on my face now instead of Biopsy Scar.....hoping some can offer me advice as I'm at my wits end and have rationalised this situation to the extend of my capability 😓😓
