Sooooooooooo.. It's almost been 2 months!! New things to report. My derm called me back regarding my liver enzymes and said they went back down to normal, so I could continue with 20mg a day. However, I haven't exactly been taking that. I haven't been feeling the greatest and it just kinda scares me putting more of this in my body feeling like this. Started experiencing aches and pains throughout my back, mostly upper back, lower back, shoulders and neck. Sometimes even like my upper arms. My friends and I went to see a movie last night, and it was almost unbearable sitting in that seat for 2 hours with the back pain. My yeast infection has been okay, but it's still there. It's going away, but really slowly. I feel like the Accutane is really messing with my body. For the past few days, I've had this pain like in my abdomen area, on the right side only, like above my hip bone. The last few days, it would sort of come and go, but last night I went to sleep with the pain, then woke up today with the pain, and it has persisted all day. Still hurts as I type this. This is pretty worrisome to me because I don't want anything to happen to my colon or something, because I could not live with this pain for the rest of my life. So I didn't take any Accutane today. I know I'm probably doing this so wrong, but I take 20mg's some days, only 10mg's other days and sometimes none at all. I just listen to my body, and do what feels right. I also don't take them at the same time everyday - are we supposed to be?
As far as my skin goes, I'm still getting pimples. Mostly whiteheads.. But only a few at a time. Like I'll have about 4 on my face, then as those disappear, I'll get a few more to replace them. And that's just how it goes. Besides the few whiteheads, my skin is super smooth. Like I went from having 70+ pimples on my face, to 4!!! Which is amazing. I'm so happy about that. But I'm just worried about what's going on inside my body.
