Hey everyone, I’m back. Still not completely well, but almost over it all.
I did go to the doctor about the cough and was told I was getting some bronchial stuff, not sure what. She was shocked by how violet my cough was and suggested some antibiotics plus some steroids. The first I had to take for a week, the steroids just days.
About the second day on the medication I started noticing that my mouth tasted horrible and I was so thirsty all the time. I put it down to the steroids as I had never taken them before. I was glad when the third day of them finished.
However, I still felt off. By the 4th day I was having stomach cramps and just feeling sick. It reminded me of morning sickness. I soon realised it was the antibiotics. They were some I had never taken before as well. Each day I just felt like crap. I had to keep taking them, as you have to do that with antibiotics. If I had felt even worse I would have gone to the doctors or hospital, but decided to just get on with it.
I sat around for the rest of the week.
I took the last tablet last night and while the cough has been gone for almost a week, I still feel a bit off, but know that in a day or two I should be back to normal.
Who knew that having a reaction to antibiotics was a thing. So all the feelings of sickness, light headedness and foul taste in my mouth was due to that, I hope. We will see in the next couple of days.
Thank you everyone who wished me to get better and I seriously hope that I will be now. I don’t get sick often, but for this to happen and just go on and on has been outside the norm for me and I am definitely over it. Fingers crossed all will be good now.
I have some photos to show you, obviously old ones. They were taken back in 2021 of Princes Pier.
