Breathe Easy

Posted on

sloth stripperAs some of you may remember last summer I tested positive for tuberculosis and went through a particularly nasty round of drugs [Isoniazid and Priftin]. I had already scheduled an appointment with my pulminologist [lung doctor] regarding my alleged ‘reactive airway disease’ or RAD. I hade an appointment with said doctor today who assessed my lung function and checked up on my TB status. GOOD NEWS! My lung function is at 117% [not sure how that works], my X-ray was TB free and pretty awesome looking. I have been released into the wild with a rescue inhaler and told that I didn’t have to come back and that my yearly chest x-rays can be handled by my rheumatologist. My doctor was actually very surprised by the level of lung improvement he saw from my lung function test, he said that such improvement rarely happens and he can’t explain it.


My Lyrica and Tramadol regime has continued to help my fibromyalgia, I have however learned that if I forget a dose of Tramadol my body turns on me. I’m a bit worried abut the long run regarding my Tramadol use but for now as long as I stay on schedule I think I’ll be fine. I’m on the hunt for a rheumatologist closer to OSU that works with fibromyalgia and RA.
