The peeing issue can be a side effect of the 5ASAs??? Wow. I never knew. Which I don't know a lot - and obviously with the Ambien-food issue, lots of others don't know to tell either...
I've tried my usual before sleep tricks. Visualization works well - think beach, hammock, slight breeze - ah, so relaxing. It doesn't get me anywhere right now - sob!
I believe my last dose of Flagyl (stinky stuff) is tomorrow night. I'm interested to see if that helps the restless, nervous, energy. Another side effect of another drug that I was not informed about
The flare is still there. I'm still going 6-7 times a day. Usually three between 3-7AM, and three between 6-10PM with an occasional daytime movement. Seeing a bit of blood yet - which makes me nervous. I know some must be from a fissure/hemi (have yet to look) because it shows as a "spot" on the TP. But there still is some mixed in with stool... Not every time though :) Which makes me think internal hemis... BTW - does anyone know if the blood from hemis clots and passes??? Or is it always "fluid"?
Spring is ROUGH! But I love the greens, flowers, etc (not the bugs) and cooler weather! I'm not looking forward to my first SE TX summer...
