January 14, 2014   Ariane   Comments Off on 4th Colonoscopy Health

Tomorrow’s my 4th colonoscopy. Yay. CRP and CALPRO still elevated, although CALPRO has come down about half from the previous. Still high though. Meds not as effective as hoped. So the docs what to see what my bowels is looking like now, is there inflammation left and how bad. I altready thought I might escape […]

Just realized it’s been over six months since my last health related update here, and figured it’s time to make one to keep track.

Heard back from the colonoscopy today – and looks like we finally, after 4 long years, may actually really have a true diagnosis! It’s not 100% definitive yet, but the pathology indicate Crohn’s Disease – the inflammation is mild so apparently it’s uncertain because of that. So they’re going to put me on corticosteroids now and if […]

Had my third colonoscopy yesterday. This one took the longest, an hour and I think 20 minutes. Considering how my symptoms have been behaving the last several months and that I had a bad spout of diarrhea on Saturday and had to take a lot of Imodium to get it stop and then had no […]

In case you’ve noticed & wondered why, I haven’t been posting much anything latelythat needs weeding out the bad caps in the last several weeks, or wallpapers/icons at all. The reason is: My 6 year old main monitor – which is a big external one, and the one I solelydo all work on everything on […]

September 10, 2012   Ariane   Comments Off on Health Update – Not Yay Health, Personal

I had the check up with the gastroenterologist today – the end result that I get to go in for a 3rd colonoscopy. Oh yay.   Calprotectin which has been all up and down over the last 3,5 years is up to around 1150 now which is my highest ever (before it was 650) and the gastroenterologist […]

Summer has been surpringly normal-as-far-migraine-goes so far – owed completely to the fact it’s hardly be able to be called summer. Seriously, why couldn’t this kind cold, rainy summer happen for those two years when I was mowed over by chronic migraine and chronic stomach cramps and/or diarrhea and chronic tiredness 24/7/365 when felt like […]

I haven’t slept well the past two nights – hardly at all. I still dream every night, and when I sleep badly, seems like I remember the dreams a lot better than when I sleep well :/ Feeling tired and unenergetic, want to go and try to sleep but I know I won’t be able […]

March 16, 2012   Ariane   Comments Off on Stupid Cough Health, Rant

I’m sick of coughing. If I have to have to the flu, why can’t I ever have the runny nose version anymore? That doesn’t make my head feel like I’m having a migraine attack for days on end even though I’m not, like coughing all the damn time does :/ And the cough in my […]

Two notable things, wanted to have a record for the future… Migraines started threateaning to become chronic again starting December, so Topimax was added to my migraine prevention meds. Yesterday I got to the full maintenance dosage, and results should be starting to show by mid-March. I think it’s been better for a week or […]
