I saw my GP on Friday, he squeezed me in b/c I wanted to be able to visit Dad in Nursing Home and I had a horrible cough, way down deep, shortness of breath, wheezing and couldn't breath through my nose, most uncomfortable. He prescribed erythromycin which he says is good for sinus, lungs etc. infections. I started on it Friday night. Sat. I felt a little lite headed and whoozy, same Sunday. Sunday late in afternoon I became deathly ill. Nausea and stomach cramps, really, really bad stomach cramps. Didn't sleep Sunday nite. At 6AM Monday I went to local emerg. They had me wait 4 hours, then I saw a doc for all of two minutes, I showed him the erythromycin, he said it will cause stomach and intestinal upset, so he sent a nurse in to give me two shots in the butt, someone else took blood and urine, I tried to get them a stool sample (sorry for the descriptive language folks, but I'm really, ill), couldn't get the sample, so I was told to go sit in the waiting room, and wait, again. I waited another hour, could not hold my head up, any longer, couldn't stand noise, heat, smell, people, etc. so I left, not knowing what the heck is wrong with me. Now I've suffered trough another restless, miserable night. I am supposed to be moving house and I cannot move my self. Not one bit. My comforts all went down to new place so here I am in hot stuffy older place, w/o a decent bed. Woe, Woe, Woe, is me. Has anyone had this intestinal bug with the sinus and lung involvement, the stomach cramps, really nasty? What is it. Of course with the swine flu everywhere, is this it?, or just a common flu?, or is it the erythromycin. Anybody.
