post strep syndrome
Thursday, April 15, 2010
This week I started a lowered dose of Keflex , 250 mg 2x a day for a month. I understand more about what is going on my immune system is attacking my body in response to the high levels of strep bacteria in the body. I am pale and I am exhausted. I see my cardiologist next week to evaluate my heart and see if this has gone into endocarditis. I gained 4 pounds of fluid last week and got very weak when after going off of the antibiotics for 2 days then back on them for 7 , was very scary started having chest pain around my heart and got very swollen. I haven't been to the gym in 2 weeks. I did go for a 2 mile walk yesterday and 1 and 3/4 mile walk tonight. I hope to get to the gym in the morning. This is a very hard road back to me.
