well i managed to get in to my pdoc with in a few days of my most recent mood swing....a miraculous feat in its self....his nurse found time to squeze me in...i love this woman LoL...anyway he wants to up my lithium. he thinks this is the fastest way to stabilize me. he dose have some concerns because i have gone toxic on lithium before...and my blood level was only .7 when i went toxic, not near toxic levels at all. there have been some study's that show that your inner cell levels of lithium can be different from your plasma levels, and its believed that these inner cell levels are actually more accurate then plasma levels, but testing the inner levels is a research test not a normal test so its not done. The doc thinks i might have a faulty sodium pump in my cells so my plasma level is actually lower then my inner cell level and thats why i went toxic at .7......anyway its gonna be a game of wait and see...wait and see if i go toxic when they up the meds and back down on the lithium again if i do go toxic....boy do i feel like a guinea pig! ! ! Heres to hopping it works! ! !
