Sometimes I really get sick of writing about my treatment, hence why I don’t do it TOO often these days. It just feels like every time I turn around there is something new to deal with.
Today I had my follow up with my wonderful Nurse who is overseeing my treatment. My blood work came back and guess what I have? A bacterial infection affecting the lining of my stomach that could possible cause me an ulcer if not treated. GREAT news isn’t it?
Anyways, that means I need THREE MORE antibiotics taken together along with everything else I have been taking to eradicate this. At least it is only for 1 week!!!
Although I am sick of feeling like crap and feeling like I always have some sort of new health issue popping up, I am ecstatic about the fact that I have such a great team caring for me and that I finally have some answers. This could be causing me a lot of my nausea/stomach pain. Oh the joys!
What else? I feel like crap today and have been having some serious skin issues out of nowhere. I have a hive like rash and also very puffy around my mouth and my eyes….could be some sort of allergic reaction….but to what?
That is exactly why my Nurse is sending me to get some up to date food sensitivity testing as well as allergy testing. I am honestly hoping they find something so I don’t have to deal with this swelling. I have enough on my plate already!!
Anyways, I think that is all for now. Nausea has somewhat subsided as I have been using Syntrion Sygest oral spray 3x per day since the 20th (about 6 days now). I think it helps. That and taking DGL (2 chewable tablets) 20 minutes before I take my meds. Here are some pictures of what the Sygest looks like:
