Deterioration = New Meds = Awful Side Effects

Dear Readers,

In November I found out that my PH had deteriorated so I had to start a new medication to help me to get back on my feet. I had to stay in my hospital (Royal Brompton Hospital) whilst they monitored my stats on this tablet, but my body took to it well and I was let out that same day, albeit rather late into the night!

I have now been on this new medication for a month now and gee that side effects are awful! I've suffered severe headaches and sickness over the last month. I'm hoping they will subside very soon, so I can enjoy Christmas next week! However if my symptoms haven't improved then I'll have to change to a new tablet and hope I take to them better. I really hope my side effects subside soon as I have noticed my PH symptoms have improved, so they're definitely doing me good, even though I feel like they're doing me in! Haha!

Anyway, as always I keep on going and get on with my life as much as I can, but in the meantime please keep your fingers crossed that I continue to improve with the PH symptoms and the side effects are no longer!

On a good note, my Facebook page, Tess and PH, has now reached over 1000 likes and followers! I will continue to raise awareness for this incurable heart and lung condition alongside the PHA UK charity and help people to understand this condition!
