I am sick again. I didnt know if it was my ear or if my TMJ was acting up so I dragged my weary tail down to the doctor this morning. He ran a few tests and discovered that it is my TMJ acting up again but it has my jaw joint so swollen it has almost closed my tube in my left ear. They did this cool lil electronic test to check behind my ear drum...lol. My right side was just dandy but my left side almost failed...poor lil left side Problem is the way they decided to treat this. STEROIDS!!! They gave me a nice big ole shot of something or other thru my vein while I was sittin there and then gave me a script for the medrol dose pack, some anti-inflams and the ever lovin does nothing tramadol. I hate that crap. Does nothing for me but I will be a good girl and try it ONE MORE TIME! LOL. I am fixing to have my second major manic attack...I know it. I almost went manic on a cortisone injection once when they gave me two of them too close together for my knees. This should just send me into orbit. Not to mention that the lovely little package insert says all these nice little things about how you should be so careful if you take medications for seizures...uhhhh...Im on 3 of them!!!!! Soooo...if I act goofy or off the wall...please dont be alarmed...its the steroids. I may be out building birdcages with timer lady here shortly.
