I woke up way early with the diareah pain.

I tried to get more sleep each time i fall asleep i went into REM sleep right away.And would wake up to do it again.
I got up but feel out of body not right.

My temp was only 96 degrees. That has came up since then.
I am scared terribly.
I feel off balance, colon pain,exhaustion,bladder pain,but not feverish today.

I called my nurse practitioner they said call the gastro. doc.,they said to call my regular doctor.

I now have an appointment tomorrow with another doctor in town a DO not a MD.
Hope i am still alive then.

Hoping you found treatment today MADDOG.
Anxiously awaiting your update, thinking about you all day.

You had a bad day and I had a bad night. I ended up in urgent care today, primary had no openings till Friday.

I sat in the examining room with the lights off crying.

No one, no one, no one understands what Lyme sufferers fight through day in and day out. Scary debilitating breakdowns of most bodily functions. No way to prepare or decipher what the hells going on. Pain, extreme fatigue, can't walk, can't talk, feel like you're dying. Told to force yourself to get up and move which sets you back not days or weeks but months ! Ugh.

I never had night or day sweats. Then bam, out of the blue, my world's rocked. Cascade effect, now ALL my Lyme symptoms are back.

Today's diagnosis. . .acute Sinutistis
Seriously, I've had chronic Sinutistis for 5 years. Add on strep throat and mono for 4 weeks. Waiting for this mess to pass.

Hang in there MADDOG. The bad times make the good times oh so much sweeter. Healing prayers.

Hi Gang
This thing keeps coming back,then leaving again.
Usually hits me in the morning and is better at night.
No more direah but the cramps and itchy pain is there after my morning constitution every time.

The itchy internal pain is like on a 9 on the scale,then slowly subsides towards evening.

I just pace the floor it hurts so bad.

The doctors just are not sure what it is,but suspect a gut flora problem from the ABX.

So it is some better but still flaring up.

The cold chills are somewhat better.

Oh i also have candida on my tongue.I have Nystatin that .
Posted by Lymetoo (Member # 743) on :
Have you tried anti-histamines at all??

Sounds strange perhaps, but it may help. Mast Cells may have been kicked up (gut pain and itching are signals).

Anti-histamines, even Pepcid may help.

So sorry you are sick.

Have you had Stormy Weather?

Sounds crazy but "I know someone" who gets sick with their dog during and after a storm, similar to you.

My theory, knowing about the cracked underground sewage and water pipes is that heavy flow from pipes forces storm water out of waste pipes and into cracks in drinking water pipes and folks drink bad water.

I see clusters of people with the same "stomach"/colon problems.

I don't like plastic bottled water due to endocrine disruptors and general plasticizers' effects which are not publicized.

Try filtering or boiling your water or drinking other stuff. Some use generic Immodium as their Go-To recovery aid.

BTW I am trying your recipe, soup over mash.

Sounds like a good breakfast, too.

Don't add water, pour over mash w/o heating first, then microwave all on a paper plate.

Another good one is get the rice-plus packets (i.e. rice plus quinoa) that microwave in the packet 2 mins (Costco, other). Lay the cooked grain on a paper plate and top with a can of any beans, microwave. Baked beans from the can good.

My recipe speed these days....

Get well soon so you can howl at the Winter Moon for Joy and not Pain.
