Day 16 of 2018 (New Medicines)

Wednesday, January 17, 2018

So I'm about a week into my meds for January.

I'm on Sucralfate and Xifaxan

I can tell a difference. I'm less bloated at night and my palpitations have calmed down.

I still have gas attacks and bloat will come and go in waves but it doesn't stick as long.

I have some smelly gas though. LOL. emoticon

The side effects so far for me are headaches, and gas. My CNS feels a little strange too like I have little movements when I'm trying to be still that I feel I can't control. Before when I was on Prevalite I could eliminate the sick feeling if I ate something bad. I ate something fatty yesterday and my stomach really felt upset but I didn't have diarrhea thankfully (sorry TMI) but I still felt bad on the inside. So I wonder if I need to have the prevalite on hand to take here and there but so far I haven't had to run to the bathroom in several days.

I'm still burping but not as bad. I still have anxiety but I'm showing some improvement with the easing of other symptoms

I had a crazy dream this morning though and I woke up feeling really bad. I don't know if it was the food or the meds.

I'm on a 5 day workout streak. I will post my results of that when I complete day 7.
