as many of you will know, i havent been too great for some time, during the last few weeks had an "infection" one of many!! i was treated with 8 steroids for 8 days, then went from 8 to 2 [last two tomorrow] i was given amox for 7 days, this didnt seem to do any good so doc put me on another 5 days amox, after this , no better, so spoke to my respiratory nurse today, who told me to phone my doctor, and tell doc. that resp. nurse says due to the last three sputum samples taken in during feb, this was the wrong antibiotic, needed antibiotics for"pneumonia bug?" my doctor agreed it was this "pneumonia bug" i had.,,,, and the wrong antibiotics were given [by a different doc],my gp has now gave me co-amoxiclav take for further 7 days,, but during a brief period of infection clear in early march, i was given the pneumonia!!!and flu jab.
i was to ask about my" humira injection" for ank. spond. this was stopped over a couple of months ago, "pending on results of chest doctor" this was thought to be the cause of infections,, i have had infections since this was stopped,, anyway g,p says there was a letter sent re. this, but no answer of yet!! backs agony,, g,p told me to take up to 6+ 5ml doses of oramorph and use the 50mg pain patches,, doing nothing, just making me tired..
 after having these infections, i had used up my emergency supply,, g,p said she would send this, as she did,,,a packet of AMOXI 7 days worth,, [she had just told me no good] then steroids ,, the duplicate of my cut down dose working from 8 down to 2!!!? i usually get 8 a day for a week emergency steroids.,,, usually on the emergency packs,, its says "emergency pack,", not on these ones.
not any better than i was about three weeks ago, breathing bad , wheezing, coughing, bringing up lots of sputum, back and joints sore, just not feeling right,,,, been worse i suppose ,, but tired worn out,, and CONFUSED.,,, any advice,, off to kip now,,jimmy
