Thanks everyone! I had some tylenol sinus at home....was afraid to try it because I am feeling like I'm in
a flare right now. After reading your posts through my blurry eyes I decided to give it a try. It has helped alot, still have the headache, but much more tolerable.
kim123: I know, I hate to take antibiotics, it always makes me feel worse than I did before! I will ask about the anti-fungal instead. Thanks!
FallColors: Thanks, the "Dr." on call for my PCP is the very same one who for years insisted I "only had IBS" easy for him to say and would not send me to a specialist (with my insuracne at the time I had to have a referral). He finally 'allowed' me to see a specialist after one horrible office visit. I told him I needed to see a specialist; was tired of throwing up or running to the bathroom; or doing both at the same time 4-6 times a day. He nicely told me "Well, IBS won't kill you I'm handling it." That was it! i told him "It will if I put a #@$%
^&* gun to my head." I wasn't serious, but he thought I was. Needless to say, left on bad terms and wouldn't trust him anyhow. So, I'll wait until tomorrow. Sorry for the long response...just wanted to make sense why I wouldn't go to the on call Dr.
Does anyone out there on Imuran have trouble getting over viruses? My GI says that imuran doesn't do that. But I know that everytime I get sick anymore it takes forever to get better and I get the virus far worse than anyone in my house. Just curious.
