I apologize in advance if this post seems negative or is so poorly written that you want to poke your eyes out.
I'm day 7 into my antibiotic (Levaquin) and all I want to do is sleep. Even right after waking up from a long nap or a good night's sleep, I just feel exhausted. I'm also getting intense sinus headaches which makes me worry that the Levaquin isn't helping out enough (my lungs feel better but my head feels worse). I took my temp tonight and it's 99.0 which again makes me a little nervous because I'm not used to running a temp a week into an abx course (not that 99.0 is really even considered a real temp).
So, I called my doc tonight and left her a message. I go to see her next week, but I'm concerned that she's going to want to put me on a PICC. I know that other cysters and fibros have these routinely and probably don't even bat an eye when they're told they need one, but they still scare me. I've only had 2 and each one has made me feel so miserable for the first week or so of the treatment. I'm trying to find that balance between letting my body handle the sickness and letting IVs help me. I'm just unsure what to do this time around....I don't know if my fear is prohibiting me from seeing the whole picture or not.
All I know is I'm day 7 into my abx, my heads hurting, and I'm exhausted. I'm also blowing out green snot, but I do that on pretty regular basis anyway (ever since my sinus surgery). UGH...so frustrating. I guess we'll just see what the doctor has to say.
