Made it through work yesterday....I'm a little better...

Wednesday, April 11, 2012

Just have to take the Dramamine 1 hour before getting in car. Still eating a fairly bland diet (as recommended by doc). The allergies are biggest concern now as my sinuses are aching and yesterday was sunny in our office so had to put on my sun visor and take an extra Mestinon (for ocular myasthenia gravis) about 1:00.

Overall I am improved so don't plan to see doctor right away. I am considering having the surgeon look at my surgical site and see if she thinks my symptoms are related to the hernia repair. I am still getting occasional tummy aches, especially after eating.

    Hope this gets better with time. Might be a good idea to
check back with the surgeon. HUGS!

Pepto-Bismol...dramimine and Tums...something should work...

Monday, April 09, 2012

I think I will have some Pepto-Bismol before I finish drinking my coffee this morning...Hate to miss my caffeine!

I am still getting motion sickness when I get in the car and I need to take the Dramimine,also, or it won't help if I wait too long.

One good thing about nausea continuing is that I have lost 1 lb a day since Saturday.

Oh, yeah, I am drinking lots of water and electrolyte drink so I won't be dehydrated but at this point I am wondering how much else I have to do to make it through the day at work. I definitely have to get back to work as I have used 2-1/2 days for these symptoms already.

When I saw the doctor she thought I would be over this in only a few days. It started on Wednesday about 1:00 a.m. so it has been about 5 days. I am concerned there may be a problem with the hernia repair as I often get pains at that level of my tummy, but not right at the incision. The hardest thing to deal with is the intermittent nausea and motion sickness. I am continuing the Claritin D for the extremely high pollen counts, also.

    This has be going on too long. Call your doctor and see
what other ideas she may have to help you.
You may have an inner ear infection-just a thought.

I went to work on Friday but went home early....

Saturday, April 07, 2012

Still having nausea and general tiredness. Slept about 12 hours last night and am feeling better after that much sleep.

I am having difficulty with eliminating 9 items from my diet and have to find my magnifying glass to read the fine print on packages of food at home and when shopping.

Did you know soy is just about as prevelant as wheat in food products? My best bet is to eat fresh fruits, vegetables, rice, rice noodles and fish. I love ice cream and have bought lactose free ice cream and sorbets but the problem with those is that they are high in sugar. I will have to make my own. emoticon

    All these obstacles to healthy choices. Do the best you can
and if need be, make your own and cut the sugar. A bit of
a nuisance but way better for you. Happy Easter! HUGS!

Saw doctor as nausea and motion sickness continue...

Friday, April 06, 2012

She said it could either be food poisoning or Rotavirus. She offered to write a note to take today off work but I told her the rules at work wouldn't be affected and I would be given 2-3 "incidents" as I had gone back to work and left early yesterday. She suggested Dramamine, Tums, getting Claritin D (as my alergies are acting up from high pollen counts) and eating a bland diet. She said this could take a few days to get out of my system. At least I am able to eat and keep it down but my appetite is much less than usual.

I am glad the weekend starts in about 10 hours.

    Hi Teddy,

I'm back sparking again, I'm sorry that you are not feeling well today.

Food poisoning last for 24hrs. If that helps to know?

I will keep you in my prayers tonight with your knee replacement and quad tear. I have had surgery on both my knees and have done PT with many an knee replacement people. Hang in there your knee will strengthen with time. Keep doing your knee exercises and I'm right with you on getting this weight off will be much better for our knees.

Take Care and I hope you feel better very soon.

Back to work after 1 day off for flu

Thursday, April 05, 2012

I think I ate something that didn't agree with me and couldn't sleep on Tuesday night. Called in sick yesterday morning.

Thank goodness I am feeling much better. I think it is related to the elimination diet I am (eliminating 9 allergens). I found something else I am allergic to and am not sure what it is. I think it was in the coating of the cajun fries from Popeyes. (I most certainly did not eat any fried chicken,) Will try to find out what they put on their fries as it certainly did not agree with me.....
