Been out of the loop due to medication for my knee.
Damn knee still barking a bit and I still can't kneel.
Went to see Dr. Tall Tan and Gorgeous for my follow up and was given an
anti-inflammatory to reduce pain.
Guess what it did? Made me sick and swollen. But my knee felt better even though it was now double its usual size.
Day 1 - took the new pill. Day 1 evening not feeling well at all.
A plethora of things happening. I couldn't figure it out. Yes, I'm slow.
Day 2 -took the new pill. Day 2 evening really really not feeling well and even more things symptoms.
I say to Rick, "I feel like I've been glutened" Yes that is a verb in my home.
He said, "What did you eat?" Nothing but real food and nothing with gluten.
So we go over my last week and then Eureka I realize I've added a new pill.
The pharmacists have on my record that I have Celiac Disease.
They couldn't possibly give me a Rx that has wheat for a binder. Yea right.
So I look up ingredients on the internet for my generic drug. Sure enough.
I felt I needed to call the pharmacy to be sure it was the same ingredients so I did just that. I thought if it were a different manufacturer than what I was reading online it may not be why I feel this way.
The pharmacist read everything to me and then she stopped before she said wheat. I said to her, "It says wheat next right?" She said, "oops sorry. It can't be that bad can it?" (giggles) Really you just said that to me?
I can't get my feet in a shoe, my rings on my finger or my ass in my pants. I have severe pain in my stomach and can't be far from a bathroom. I have hives all over me. Gee, an apology does it. Thankfully I only took 2 pills before things went off the charts! If I had taken it for a week I'd be in the hospital or worse.
You spend years trying to get a healthy gut and then this woman cavalierly says "Oops, sorry" and giggles.
Today I am cranky and hurting. Aren't you glad you stopped by?
The good news is it feels like spring and it's so nice outside! I went out at lunch and Izzy and I enjoyed our walk in spring like weather. (66 degrees)
