FINALLY figured out what’s been making me sick


FINALLY figured out what’s been making me sick

I went on short term disability almost 3 months ago. I felt like shit, took naps, completely lethargic, nauseous, etc. No, I'm not pregnant, I'm a guy.

After a billion tests by all sorts of doctors, they couldn't find anything wrong with me. My family physician said it was probably an inner ear virus, which takes 8 weeks to go away. There isn't any test for it, so they just have to rule out everything else.

However after 2 months, I was STILL having symptoms. Turns out… that not only did I get that virus, but I was also having a reaction to a medication I was taking. They both just happened to hit me at the same time.

I pinged my doctor over the weekend on Facebook (because she's AMAZING), and she agreed with my diagnosis. Going to see her Wednesday. Of course there are more tests to confirm this, but we're both pretty sure this is the issue.
