Finally I am safely back home in the US. A few days ago, I decided to listen to all of you who gave me the advice to stop the NSAID, even if I have to bear with the pain, I did stop taking Celebrex as well as Tylenol 3, where it also gave me some problem as well. My stomach felt a lot better, at least I didn't get the feeling of being very sick after taken the Celebrex. My GERD is still a problem, but at least the Gastritis did not act up as bad as before.
I am in terrible pain, I think it is time to look for an alternative to Eastern Medicine, maybe try Herbs for a while and see if it help or not.
Also, just a couple of days before I left for home, I went to a hospital in Hong Kong to get an alternative blood pressure medication, because my previous one for some reason did not work, my blood pressure was at 160/110, they gave me Aldomet. The blood pressure sure drop, but after 2 days of taking it, I got an allergic reaction from it. My body is full of hives and very itchy. Luckily it is just hives and no other reaction. I was worry I would have complications while I was on the plane, fortunately I did not. as soon as I landed and got home, I went to ER here in the States, they gave me a few shots, which it didn't seem to. A shot of Pepcid, Solu-Medrol and 50mg Benadryl, it's been almost a days and it did not seem to help at all. I am still cover with hives and still very itchy. Hospital also gave me some Prednisone and more Benadryl for home treatment. But they want me to take 20mg x 2 of Prednisone per day for 5 days. I took a 20mg today and I didn't feel right this morning. I did went to see my PA today, he said if I have to take Prednisone, just take 10mg, since my case seems to be mild. If it is not one thing, it's another, so frustrating.
