N. Fowleri infection/ scare!! Help!!! Worried!!
« on: May 13, 2014, 03:55:11 PM »
Wasn't even worried about this yesterday! But this morning I woke up with an upset stomach, abdominal pain, diarrhea (which isn't even a symptom of n. Fowleri) and a tension headache in my neck and shoulders. I don't even know how I would've gotten it, but in my mind this isn't a simple stomach bug, it's n. Fowleri infection!!! Help!!!

Your anxiety seems to be getting worse and worse - what steps are you taking to combat it?  You CAN beat it!

As for the amoeba, well, you don't have it.  But you know that.

I know I don't have it. I even took my temperature a and it was 97.1 - a little on the low side for me, but obviously not a fever. I actually did speak to my doctor on Friday about medication and he prescribed something for me, but he wants to completely wean me off of the tricyclic that I'm on for IBS-D. He's worried the interaction of the two would cause serotonin syndrome - so I'm weaning off of the other one, anxiously waiting to feel better.
