He's not sure it's ATN. He said we'll know more after I try these new meds and see how they work or don't work.
I guess in the meantime I can go get the Neurontin and start on that. I can only start one med at a time because of my tendency to have weird reactions to things - that way I know which drug is causing the problem if there is a problem.
He tested me with a cotton ball yesterday against the right side of my face and it left me with a killer headache. It was not pleasant but it did confirm that I have allodynia. I guess that's good because at least we know that component of things.
I just talked to the disability lady and she said they have everything they need...they're just waiting to hear from the people who make the decisions and that I'll hear from them about the same time the lady does. Now it's just a matter of waiting. I hate waiting. It's not my strong suit.
I'm learning, though.
