I have heard there is a mouthwash you can get for the mouth sores. Honestly I have not treated mine but I should because some of them last a lot longer than other ones do. If I can find out what kind of mouthwash it is, I will post it on here for sure for you!
Thank you for replying and best of luck with this! It sure isn't fun!
RX does mean prescription and you do not look dumb!
Besides your typical colds and stuff like that I have not been really sick myself until earlier this year. It has been a weird year, too. I had meningitis back in April then episcleritis of the eye which started in June or July and I STILL have it to a degree. I hoped all along that the episcleritis was related to the meningitis but my internist believes I have IBD (as mentioned above).
I am REALLY hoping 2008 is going to be an awesome year as far as health goes! I wish the best for everyone else on here as well! I am so dang sick of doctors! Honestly I feel like certain members of my family think I am a hypocondriac and it really hurts me because I am not making anything up and it is SOOOO frustrating to have something wrong with you and doctors cannot figure out what is causing it.
Thanks again for all your replies! I appreciate all of you!
Merry Christmas and Happy 2008!!!
Thank you soooo much for your reply stuckonyesterday! You totally describe how I feel right now! Looking back, there were times I could go years without a sickness--not even the flu or anything like that even! Just your usual common cold! I sure took that for granted! It is so frustrating when people do not believe something is wrong. I really feel like saying "don't judge me until you have gone through what I am going through. "
I have irregular cycles myself. I am not underweight, but my cycles seem to come and go as they please. It is nice to skip a month or more, so I can relate from that aspect.
I am so sorry to hear about your mom! I hope and pray she is healing and everything will be ok!
Honestly, with how I am about money and that aspect, I am really surprised certain family members think I am making stuff up. Who on earth would want to pay a co-pay every couple of weeks, or more, to see a doctor, if you didn't have to? That is what I don't understand! I am sick of going to the doctor, taking time off work and spending money on co-pays. I am very thankful I have insurance--but at the same time, I dread seeing that co-pay money go "bye bye."
Thanks again for letting me vent!
Best of luck to you, your mom, and your family in the new year!
