Swine flu virus was the culprit....

Saturday, December 26, 2009

Back in October I got the swine flu, I've been sick ever since. What a crazy ride! My MRI and blood tests came out good so no worries there but man was it scary for a while. I was referred to a neurologist and he diagnosed me with Myclonus spasms which was a whole body spasm which didn't want to quit. He put me on Keppra XR (an anti-seizure medicine) for 20 days and that seemed to do the trick. Now all I have are minor jerks occasionally. Once I was off the Keppra, my feet started to burn and have a painful tingling sensation. I thought it was just a side effect of the Keppra so I waited 3 weeks before I seen the neurologist again. Now i have Guillian Barre Syndrome and he put me on prednisone to make it go away. I am lucky because it could have been worse and have had to clean my blood. Hopefully, the prednisone will do the trick. Since my immune system is compromised, I also got bronchitus because I could never get rid of my cold.

So, please get your swine flu immunizations so you don't go through what I did.

I am looking forward to a healthy, happy, weight loss New Year!
