So, I figure I should probably update you all. The symptoms are coming and going (apparently, flareups are something I can look forward to), so another visit to the doctor resulted in prescriptions for Nifedipine and Hydroxychloroquine. A gloriously distressing list of side-effects include (rather amusingly for some, I imagine) the possibility of my hair losing its colour (stop sniggering back there… what’s wrong being ginger?).
Other than that, there’s not really much more to report. It’ll take a while for things to kick in apparently (opinions differ on how long, anything from a few weeks to a few months), so there’s very little else to do except wait.
I don’t do well waiting.
