More than four hours into the allergy meds, I'm still not noticing any negative side effects which is good because I tend to be hypervigilant about drug reactions and side effects. I'm breathing easier, but still have all the vertigo and ears feel plugged, headache is still there but feels more distant. Hurts mostly behind my eyes and in my ears. I still have that feeling when I hear loud sounds like they're intruding into my very skull, but the general anxiety is not so close to the bubbling-over feeling that I had earlier. I'm hopeful that the allergy tablet is helping and that it just needs time to do its thing.
Meanwhile, my wife went to the osteo and he sent her back to the hospital again for CAT scans because her ribs are separated from the sternum and he's worried that they could puncture her lung. He said that her ribs can't heal until they've been set properly, but he's afraid to even touch her until they get the CAT scans so he can see what's going on in there. The hospital should have noticed this when they did their X-rays I would think, but apparently they only looked to see that her lungs were okay before. And she's driving herself back and forth with this problem because I have such bad vertigo that I can't safely drive right now. Ugh, some days it just stinks being a human with health issues and everything.
