b1 and b6 are normal. The doc I saw today said the slightly elevated b12 was nothing to worry about
. The doc was good, lots of questions, looking at UptoDate website, lots of time spent (20+ minutes, which I never get).
He looked at the gunk on my tongue, scraped some off and said he didn't think it was a fungal infection. He said if it was, typically there would be blood under the scraping and it would be painful. But he did give me a prescript
ion for swish and spit nystatin, 4x a day for 10 days, just in case.
When I go back for mole removal Thursday, if there is still gunk there and she describes to send some to the lab, my regular PCP can do that.
He also ordered many other tests, immunoglobulin, some other tests related to my immune system. Even an HIV test (when the subject came up, I told him I was not in any risk group). Anyways it will rule that out. I never get sick, besides this reflux, or whatever stuff. Never get the flu, colds so I'd be surprised if my system was lacking a strong defense system.
So that's where I am now. I've been off omeprazole for 3 days now, I'm feeling the throat tightness come back but I'm taking the pepcid to help with that. Hope the tightness is just a result of rebound reflux.
