Friday last week I got bit by a spider(I think) while gardening, more fool me I was only wearing latex gloves as hubby was wearing my gardening gloves. The out come was my hand swelled up and was very painful, so on Monday morning I got in to see a GP at my surgery, first he looked at the swelling, then told me off for not going to A&E, then he prescribed me Flucloxicillin, since then I am trying to balance all my other meds for AF, Asthma, Diabetes type 2, adrenal insufficiency and Lymphodema and the anti biotic. Most times when I'm on antibiotics I'm not too bad, but this time round I've done nothing but sleep and when I have been awake my dizzy spells seem to go on for longer, I'm reluctant to go back to the GP as he would probably send me to A&E, where they were very lax last time I was there. (I blacked out at home, ambulance people were very good and said something was wrong judging by the results they were getting. 4 hrs in A&E bloods taken, ah an infection or maybe its all the meds I'm on thats the problem, kept in over-night and plebo could not be bothered to try a second time when she could not get a blood sample, so sent home. Three days later at my Asthma review with the Consultant at the same hospital said Youve got a very bad chest infection, no wonder you blacked out. grrr.) The swelling has gone down quite a bit and I can slightly move my had now. Only typing one handed though. Beware spiders, or any other creepy crawlies.
