Thanks people for your kind words.

Geez my head hurts. Oh and my electric kettle has stopped working!

But Big Sis sorted dinner for me, I just had a pleasant text exchange with MyGC, and I realised I hadn't had a coffee yet today, so I've now had one (in spite of the damned kettle).

I am fairly convinced that I'm better off here than hospital, until and unless I either fall over, or a doctor says "hey you, hospital, now". The thought of trying to wade through the hospital admission process is too much, I won't do it unless I've got a doctor backing me up and advocating admission.

Now I just need to find something that can take my mind off the anxiety and sheer annoyance of feeling so blah.

Oh, and it seems I am a member of the bicornuate uterus club. While it has no clinical significance for me, I'm surprised no one's mentioned this before, and while I type this I'm thinking of the gynaecologist who inserted a Mirena IUD all those years ago - apparently you're supposed to get two for this sort of thing.

It can explain heavy bleeding, which I don't have, and bad menstrual pain, which isn't the case anymore, but otherwise, according to Wikipedia it only has significant implications around pregnancy.

So that's my random bit of trivia for the day: my uterus has horns. (And I'm pretty sure my vagina has teeth. Watch out world!)

Been reading your latests posts with concern. I'm sorry to hear about these latest curious and disturbing symptoms. Don't wanna armchair doctor it here (that's what google's for), but, makes me wonder about the new meds? When I tried ones like you mentioned, they threw me for a loop. They mess with your sodium balance which can make you dizzy and give you headaches. And yeah--if you've got some lifelines you can call on in case things go south, I'd just as soon avoid the hospital.

Hoping you can get some good advice and relief soon. Meanwhile, sending good vibes and cuddly cute kittens with cocoa and everything.

Was one of the meds that messed you up fludrocortisone, by any chance?

Right--I'm a lousy metabolizer, and it's a hormone, so... (also any sudaphed type drug. I can only take "toothpick" doses under duress, like a really bad cold/flu. Also midodrine. Also pretty much anything!)

A horny uterus? I admit that I briefly sniggered before I dragged my mind from the gutter.

I hope that you can find a distraction until they figure out what is going on. It's bad enough to be feeling the pits without the added anxiety and beating yourself up.
