My blood pressure has been normal over the last twenty four hours. So the treatment course seems to be working, but I’m still very symptomatic. I keep reminding myself Rome wasn’t built in a day and I need to be patient. No one gets so sick their blood pressure falls into the 70s then bounces back right away. It’s going to take minimum a few weeks.
I really think these problems were caused by the scar on my leg and not the infection in my neck, which might be a good thing. If it was from my neck, I might have been in much more trouble because I’ve been battling that infection for two years now. I might not have been able to bounce back.
My leg near the scar hurts a little and my veins seem to be spasing a little too (is that even possible? I feel it though.) Hopefully that will go away soon.
(Is the spasming from being caused from the antibiotics working? I’ve been told my doctors I feel things most patients don’t feel. Perhaps that’s evolutions way of keeping us alive with this immune deficiency.)
Since I never get pain or redness or swelling or pus like a normal person, any kind of subtle change inside my body is a clue…it’s extremely difficult to figure out the source of an infection (and even diagnosing it as an infection), on my case it comes down to a lot of intuition and educated detective work.
I’ll run it by my infectious doctor when I see him in a few days, but I really think this time it’s the leg that did this to me…or is still doing it to me…I’m not completely out of the woods yet…
