I am having a flare up again in both eyes of uveitis and my optic nerve is more elevated now. The steroid eye drops are starting not to work and he is thinking of starting on injections or pills. So he is sending me to a uveitis specialist in Boston. It keeps coming back that it is autoimmune related and I have been tested for many but not all. It kind of freaks me out the longer I am on these that I can develop a cataract and I am only 31.

2nd Lupron Shot

I got my 2nd shot today. I do not like the shot in butt because it does sting for a while. But 2 down and 1 more to go thank goodness. So far things are ok. Today I am having some killer cold chills. My iron must be low even . I was having some serious mood swings the past few days. If this is what menopause is truly like omg I dont know if Dh could truly handle it.

Lupron week 3

Well so far I have been dealing with the s/e pretty well. I woke up this morning so refreshed and ready for the day. It was so nice for a change. The weather today could not be more perfect. Dh and I took a walk tonight and it was so relaxing.

lupron/ increased head pressure

Well I just got back from the eye doctor and my optic nerves are more swollen. So my intercranial pressure has spiked which means more head pressure. I go back in 2 weeks for a visual field test. I am sure it did not help that I did not take all my meds yesterday. I was feeling great but I am totally paying for it today. Well at least my uveitis is quiet now.

The lupron, so far my biggest complaint has been night sweats. I had them before but these are much worse. I can not believe it has been almost a month since my first shot. It went really fast.
