I was finally able to have a phone consult with my GI last week. He insisted I take a pregnancy test (I have the mirena IUD, test was negative), and said that it sounds like the flu with my symptoms. He also said it could be the start of a flare, and since I refuse to be on prednisone for the time being, he put me on Cipro and Flagyl. He also upped my imuran to 75mg.
Anways, I'm on day 2 of antibiotics. I'm soo exhausted/sleepy (worse than I was) I have a constant headache, I'm in a constant fog, and I'm getting light headed and dizzy. I know they can be normal side effects from both meds, but when do you say enough is enough with them? My husband has been great in taking care of our daughter this weekend so I can pretty much sleep all day/night. He goes back to work tomorrow, I don't know if I can take care of her alone while doing this course. :(
