  • Hi Snowdragon, how are you feeling now? I'm sorry no one had replied to your post!

    Have you managed to start back on your medication? One of the things I would recommend is starting a course of probiotics which should help your gut start to recover from the bug. I take Optibac ones.

    Did you get to see the Dr at all? Were they able to help? I hope you're still on track for your op, it's such a pain to have to rearrange things like that, back on the neverending carousel of waiting for an appointment.

    Let us know how you're doing.


  • Hi Jojo...Thanks for getting back/ I phoned my doctor again not much good,they said I had to sort the hospital thing out,But not have realised I have had /am having a bad reaction to medication doc gave me last tuesday,now still feeling really sick-can't sleep and can't keep my legs still help!!!! Calling again today I told hubby they made this mess with the wrong medication/Just feel like giving up

  • Hi Snowdragon,

    You're really going through the mill at the moment! I'm so sorry you're still feeling so ill.

    Did you manage to get hold of your GP again today? You need to discuss the meds that you've reacted to and your legs. The medication is especially important as your surgeon really needs to be aware of any adverse reactions you have!

    I know a few of the medications for Lupus can have sickness as a side effect but that should really only be when you start them, although reactions can develop over time too it's just less likely to happen that way.

    Don't give up. If you don't get anywhere with your GP you can always ask to see someone else at the surgery.

    Take care and get lots of rest too.
