I have entered another two month’s worth of numbers into my stats program and analyzed them. Of note is the fact that I was apparently hyperthyroid in Feb/March (and maybe before that) but went into remission in April. I’m gaining back my weight now, which apparently was caused at least partly by that.
I’ve created a new way of visualizing my data. The next image summarizes major symptoms since symptom onset (Fall ’06) through August ’08. Major events (such as the mold bloom) are marked at the bottom.
In this chart, each symptom is represented by a horizontal bar. The bar is either 0, 1, 2, or 3 units thick depending on the severity of the symptom. The horizontal axis shows the month and is annotated with significant events (such as our mold bloom). The vertical line in June indicates the onset of my oral treatment (IV treatment was given in 11-12 of 07). Symptoms shown in orange or red are most problematic; The bottom 9 symptoms have all stopped.
In this chart, the thickness of the bars indicates the number of days I had a symptom in a given month. For example, I was dizzy and had swollen lymph nodes almost every day in may. I had no significant memory loss episodes in the same time period. Medication changes are shown at the bottom.
