My girlfriends health
A number of years ago my girlfriend was having these terrible headaches.
She goes to the doctors, and they tell her it’s a sinus issue. Another month goes by and she sees her Dr. again, and they do more blood work on here, and it’s discovered to be temporal arteritis. Which is basically enlarged arteries of the brain.
They performed a sed rate test on her blood and it comes back really high. The drs. were flabbergasted by this.
Nobody under 50 is supposed to get this, my GF was 48 at the time. So based upon these tests, the dr. decides to give her HIGH dosages of steroids. It’s been years. I forget how high it was. But it was a crazy amount because of how bad her blood work was showing.
The Drs. informed her that because of the high dosage of steroids, that she may experience some side effects.
After a month of dealing with the steroids, my GF called her Dr. to complain about those side effects.
The doctor asked what is she experiencing…
My GF said that she’s noticed to major problems from the steroids.
The doctor asked what was the first item, and my GF mentioned that she’s getting a lot of hair on her chest.
The doctor asked how far does it go down…
My GF replied, “Down to my balls, and that the other problem!!”
