For 10 days I have had nearly constant headaches. I kept trying to see the dr. and it didn't work until today. I have several symptoms similar to my last lithium toxicity and we're waiting on labs (they said would be done last night. Liar) but I needed checked out. So he checked my throat and said that it was very red. No pain. He checked a few things and has other ideas for treatment if the strep throat is separate from the headaches. He said some kids get headaches and upset stomachs and nothing else; I am a kid now I guess. But the only other time I've had strep I went in with an "earache" that he rapidly diagnosed as strep because of my gross throat.
If my lithium toxicity warnings are the same as my strep warnings life is going to be interesting.
I should've known I was sick. The cat who is very sensitive to my being ill has been in contact with me most of the last few days. I thought she'd just decided I was the best owner ever because I have her dietary needs pinpointed perfectly right now.
I'm going to let myself sleep if I need to. I had the dr. at 1:20 and then support group at 6:30. I did everything I could to kill time but just got so tired I decided it was best to just come home. I've probably exposed half the world to strep in the last week and there's one medically fragile person in group that I don't want to expose a 2nd time. So antibiotic #1 is in and I'm ready to rest for a long time. I've been more tired, blamed it on therapy, and now I know it was this. This I'll rest for; therapy is not the same.
Hoping for a peaceful evening on the blog....
