"Two actually: Epidurals - The Truth and Adhesive Arachnoiditis Syndrome" 2005


Update 2011


So what happened to the last six years? I still remember that February, March and April 2005. Still don't know how I got away with it.

Since then I have been struggling with intermittent but constant projectile vomiting and explosive diarrhea.

Cameras' up and down and some doctor (aged 12) glad to inform me that I didn't have cancer!! Durhhh??

So went on various exclusion diets. Nothing worked.

Next Acute Angle Glaucoma - initially missed because vomiting fitted - diarrhea didn't. Ended up with laser-ed eyes

Then broke a hip following a fall - medicated out of my brain and remember nothing for three weeks - except when a group of doctors mentioned epidural anesthesia and pain control. Apparently head came of the pillow and I went off on one. Sorted.

Following a check up at the eye clinic and four different types of drops for an examination came back with chronic Bletheritis.

Present? Went to the Doc's with painful lymph nodes, mentioned ongoing projectile vomiting and explosive diarrhea.

Medicated with Domperidone and something else and googled it! Gastroparesis :)

Now there's a lesson to learn - read the Website Kim.

Every chapter, every article here is a response to problems other people were having. So thank you George! Another auto-immune to add to the list!
