I thought it has been some time since I gave an update to my progress. As I sit here trying to write my update, I feel disappointed in myself that I have not pulsed and moved forward with more improvements.
It began with elevated blood pressure and chest pressure and then I started having difficulty in walking. This made me conclude I have some kind of vascular issues that were getting worse on the antibiotics. I started with Diovan as need for when my blood pressure was out of control , but then my feet started turning red and blue.
blood work done and established my genetic defiect for a coagulation issue and my cpk levels were up to 480. This could explain my problems with walking and muscle pain in my legs. I took heprin shots for a week and that seemed to reduce my fibrin load. Now the course of treatment is to try sildenafil citrate and see if things improve. My doctor also said I could try low dose nitro if I felt better.
Today is my second day trying the sildenafil sitrate and I do feel a great deal better. Oh, by the way if you look up sildenafil citrate you will find it is better know as Viagra. My husband got a real kick out of this idea........if he only knew.
I am thinking of seeing a rheumatologist but am afraid it my add to many more issues at this point. Not sure what to do at this point except try the viagra?
Hope I can start back on the antiibiotics again as soon as possible.
Thank you all for reading.
