And yet again my body proves itself to be a little odd.
I have all sorts of weird allergies. Anti-inflammatories give me hives . . . which stinks because it means if I have a migraine I get tylenol. Gee thanks.
Any type of adhesive gives me a rash. I once wore ekg leads for a med school demonstration. Ended up with 3 perfect circles of scab on my chest. That was fun.
And by far my favorite - anything with nickel. Seriously, I can't wear gold or stainless steel for more than a few hours. (my husband still resents that he had to sink so much money into a platinum ring)
SO today I discovered a new one --- Lupron. Seriously body - do you let me take nothing for granted? I developed a massive welt at the injection site. Full on histamine release red swollen itchy welt. I am seriously hoping it was a reaction to the alcohol pad or from pinching too hard and at least if it keeps happening it doesn't get worse. I refuse to let myself be allergic to anything in this process - just not an option at this point. I don't care if I have to take benadryl every time I use it or if I have to keep my epi pen ever so close. Just as failure is not an option - neither is an allergy to lupron - I am after all a little to aware on my lack of options.
Will be interesting to see if it happens again tomorrow.
