Went to my Dr on Monday after six weeks of Doxy 200mg/MWF of Azith 250..time to add the bad boy. Flaygl. He voted for 250 1x day for 5 days since I had only minor reactions to the other meds.
Went straight to CVS and took my first dose Monday night. Tues, Wed, Thursday came and went, I have been working about 50 to 58 hours the past couple of weeks and still doing reasonably well. Sat in the infrared sauna for 30 mins on Tues evening and got shaky so no more for the week.
Last night I got home and took my dose of Flagyl about 8:30 pm and within 20 mins began to get nauseas. Then the pain in the pit of my stomach and body aches hit me like a mac truck. Then the massive diareha. About 2am huge shooting nerve pain down my left side (weak leg) kept jolting away and at 4am I shuffled my way to the bathroom to loose my dinner. I was hoping that would help the stomach pain but to no avail.
Managed to draft out an email that I wasn't going into work and literally crawled up the stairs to try and nap through the extreme body aches and stomach pain. Tons of yellow mucus came out of nowhere when I woke up.
Slept most of today and stomach pain finally subsided enough to take some Advil with relieved some of the aches.
I thought I was cruising right along with the pulse and certainly did NOT expect the reactions to come on like that. Don't remember vomiting to be a huge side affect of other either. At times I wonder if I caught strep from my son who has been home sick all week but with all the antibiotics I'm on, unlikely huh?
After a really long nap, I'm researching on here about pulse reactions and when i can expect to feel better. Dreading having to take my last dose based on how last night went.
Guess it just goes to show that it aint over until it's over and when we get a little cocky or complacent with not many symptoms and beginning to doubt any progress...WHAM!
