having difficult time in containing emotional breakdowns and outbursts
From this study (3 days ago):
Started psych meds in May 2013. Had bad bout with acid reflux from April to November 2013. Recently stopped taking Protonix for my reflux, as it was not helping the burning mouth issue and had adverse side effects. Try to take minimal prescribed medications. Burning mouth symptoms started in December 2014 after a sinus infection and bronchitis and 2 rounds of antibiotics. Only been on thyroid medicine for 2 months.
From this study (2 weeks ago):
I have epilepsy and chronic migraine syndrome, I always have a headache one side of my head. I have seizures everyday. Since last April, I have had one sort of a rash or another. I have not felt well for this entire time too. I have already come of Phenytoin, Atorvastatin, Lamictal and Topiramate. As I have been thinking it was one of my drugs. But it only makes things calmer for a couple of weeks and then the symptoms return to how they were before. I am waiting to see a rheumatologist currently, so still unaware of what is causing my problems.
I have had a CRP test and that was 9 at the time of the test. Now my smptoms are growing again, I don't know if that makes it likely it might be higher. I have spent this past year in a situation that makes you feel like you are being attached by your own body. It's very frightening when you feel as though you are going through this and people can't always see the rash but it is definitely attacking the skin.
