I think I figured out what is wrong with me

Monday, April 12, 2010

Western medicine! Yep, I was taking a pain pill that dissolves under your tongue while I was helping my Mom move for a bad back and pain in my digestive system. It was a pill that was prescribed by my GI doctor when I was in the hospital fo diverticulitis. Well, now that I got Mom moved, I thought I better stop taking those pills. Here in Mexico, there aren't as many rules about purchasing prescription drugs over the counter. Once you have one prescription you can fill it often. Anyway, I stopped taking the pills 3 days ago and now I have no appetite, no energy, anxious, etc....can't sleep, bad nightmares, etc. So I went on line to try and figure out what is going on. I believe I am going through withdrawal and my liver is in bad shape. The good news is the liver can repair itself. But all the symptoms I am having point to a sick liver. So I will head down to the homeopathic/chinese medical doctor and get him to make me a tonic to help my poor liver. Gosh, I feel like a drug addict. Yikes. Hopefully within a week or so of rest and eating the right foods for my liver I will feel better. It just goes to show what an important organ the liver is. Thank God it can repair itself.

    Oh my....... good luck with your sick liver. I would say have a margarita, but don't think that would help the liver.

Now a days you have to really be on top of your own medical stuff to get all the right answers.

Feel better soon. emoticon

    The liver is such an important organ but as you say it can repair itself... I have great books on detox diets/cleansing liver diets. It was key information to learn about when my sister was ill.

    Yep, you can get addicted to pain meds. Hope you feel better soon. And stay off those pills....they are not good in the long term.
