UPDATE: In attempting to correlate the too many variables involved, Cytomel pill at night seems the strongest correlation to sickness at night. No Cytomel Friday night--she slept well. Cytomel last night; very sick.
UPDATE 2: Yet another visit to the E/R at the direction of a physician from our medical group. TSH in proper range, so not the Cytomel. Ultrasound for gallstones. Nothing. We've pretty well ruled out everything except a stomach ulcer--which doesn't cause this level of misery. However: we had to wait so long that the nausea that came from the 6:30 PM dose of Carafate went away--and the stomach pain became quite tolerable. (And yes, nausea is listed as a side effect of Carafate.) But because she was in a little pain, they gave her a Maalox/lidocaine mixture that, within a few minutes of leaving the hospital, put her into such severe nausea she couldn't go to sleep.
I think the problem now is that all the medicines to help her stomach ulcer create such serious nausea that they are now the real problem, and the anxiety that comes from fear of this now has taken control. I am exhausted. How to break the panic attack feedback loop?
