For the past 2 weeks or so, I can’t honestly remember (which may be the scariest part), I have been tuckered out. It began as a gradual tired. The kind where you tire more easily, or you feel you stayed up a tad too late the night before. That kind.
But it gradually worsened with time. Now I’m on my couch with a laptop, every day, struggling to work in between my body forcing down from exhaustion. I have no reason to be exhausted, though! My spleen, which has been tender since the IV Solumedrol in May is now very tender and getting painful. And this morning I am finding simple tasks to be downright tiring — loading the dishwasher, pouring coffee, too tiring. Even writing this post, I just want to log off, shut the laptop, roll over, and watch the television.
I hate to admit that I watch a channel yesterday not because I wanted to, but because I was too tired to reach for the remote. I know the drill. Call the doctor. I don’t want to. My hip feels swollen and tender and painful, and I wonder if the pain from that (which has been bothering me) if just dragging me down. I see the specialist on Monday and I’m REALLY trying to hold out until then.
Then again, it could be a metabolic issue or a thyroid issue. The Topamax is known to cause hyponatremia, and I have had that before with this medicine. But no spleen issues with that.
I’ll hop into the doctor’s if I feel worse. Or slosh in, seeing as I have absolutely no energy to hop into anywhere.
