At last I have taken my first dose of Metro having started Doxy 200 mg in April and Azithro MWF from end of May. I had to wait a month for the Metro to arrive.
Actually I need to take Metro because I have had a very difficult time recently with one infected root canal on the left side of my face which was finally filled yesterday at the dentist and now it looks as if I might have another infected tooth on the right side. Just cannot believe it! I had a very difficult time with the first root filled tooth because it gave me horrendous pain day and night for 5 days after the treatment and when I went back after 2 weeks it was still draining so the dentist couldn’t complete the root canal. Luckily that is now done but the temporary filling fell out yesterday 2 hours after being placed and yesterday I also started getting little stabs of pain on the right side where I had a problem with a tooth last year.
All in all it seemed sensible to start the Metro because it does help with tooth infections but normally one needs to take it for 5 days at least so I might have to do my first pulse for 5 days which is worrying me somewhat.
I have noticed my glands have been up the past few days but I did have a stomach virus for 24 hours at the end of last week so really not sure at all what is going on with my body.
As you can imagine my energy has been very poor at times and I am having to spend lots of time resting which is making me feel very bored and a bit depressed at times.
There is one bit of good news in that the almost daily migraines might have stopped. I saw a Consultant for the 2nd time a week ago who said I needed a preventative because my pain threshold was so low. I really didn’t want to add anymore drugs but felt a bit desperate because I was needing to take so many painkillers so thought I would give it a go.
He prescribed Gabapentin 100 mg x 3. Well I am very sensitive to drugs so thought I would just take half a capsule twice daily and work up to 3 times daily. I have managed this ok but have often have had to have a short sleep even on half a capsule! Anyway I am definitely getting them under control and today woke up without any sign of a migraine despite the dentist yesterday. So that is definitely a big positive because I have suffered terribly with migraines since the age of 21 and they have got to be really out of control since taking extra supplements for methlyation (lots of methylB12) which just didn’t agree with me plus I was doing this protocol.
Any support would be very welcomed as I do feel very alone at times with nobody really understanding what it is like to live with a longterm illness.
