My appointment was good. We are increasing the Cymbalta from 60mg to 90mg and adding Magnesium. My reaction to the cymbalta is better than I could have ever hoped for. I have virtually no side effects from it which was the problem with all the other medicines before. The side effects rivaled the headaches and/or the medicine didn’t help at all. Now there is a huge decrease in the frequency and intensity with few side effects.
The drive down there was a pain in the ass with traffic past rush hour. It’s a pain (haha) to drive from my dinky little town into the center of Philadelphia but worth it nonetheless.I was a little late due to traffic but still saw my doctor. The entire appointment was fairly short, a check more than anything. We talked a little bit about Botox. I’m honestly freaked out about the idea of needles in my face and after reading some other people’s experience with it, I’m not too thrilled about it. She told me that the needles would be tiny and that I could lay down while it was done – that that would help. I’m still kind of freaked out about it, but we don’t think I’ll need it if I continue to have success with the cymbalta.
The only thing I’m kind of annoyed with is that I come back in 3 months – April – on aWednesday. Wednesday are the day I’m in a local middle school near my college. Those days are hard to make up and required. In order to make that 3 hour class up, I’ll have to miss another class at 1 pm. I can’t wait…
I tried to make it so I wouldn’t miss that lab but my health needs to come first.
