Ear Problems

Going back to my ENT this week because the hole in my left eardrum hasn’t healed up and it keeps bothering me. My right ear has been bothering me ever since my last ear infection last year. I had to get tubes when I was younger, so I don’t know if it’s time to get them again, but I know I’m definitely going to have to get the hole in the other ear patched up because the last time we did a hearing test I was losing hearing in that ear, but know I’m having problems with my right ear. #earproblems #eartubes #ent #earinfections #HearingLoss #frustration #ChronicInfections


Another Day, Another Infection #Depression #ChronicInfections #Pain #WomensHealth

Last night I started getting pain in my right breast. Pain that I've experienced twice in the past 4 months already, pain that I've come to know well. And it's the pain of a malignant infection in my milk-producing breast.

I may have a pituitary adenoma or prolactinoma, or it might just be my domperidone causing my abnormally high prolactin levels. They're so high they make me lactate spontaneously, mostly on the right side. And besides it being a nuisance, staining all my undergarments, now it's causing me physical pain yet again.

The antibiotics I'll have to go back on will disrupt a bacteria overgrowth test I need to have, pushing back the possibility of finding answers for my GI problems even further back. it's extremely frustrating the lack of progress in figuring out my health and this makes it worse. It hurts, it's annoying, and it's something I definitely do not need right now. 😮‍💨


Tried all day

Just can’t do it. I have ANOTHER kidney infection... exhausted, nauseated, chills & sweats... At least I did the dishes - but that’s about it! Time for bed!
