last weekend I started vomiting from Friday afternoon and had to be admitted to hospital so I could have my medication intravenously and fluids. I was also given medication to stop the vomiting and antibiotics because every time I have an infection I in my body I start to vomit.
It all started with tooth/gum ache on Friday afternoon followed by persistent vomiting. The vomiting did slow down enough for me to be discharged on Tuesday after I saw the Rheumatologist. The other doctors I saw on the Assessment Unit wanted to make sure the treatment they started (increased Prednisolone and antibiotics) was right as they weren't sure of the reading of the bloods and the fact I was given Rituximab in June and July. I was told I could ring the Rheumatology helpline or secretary if I need any further help after I was discharged.
On Wednesday I had an emergency appointment for my dentist who confirmed that I had an abscess in my gum so I will be going on Tuesday for him to deep clean my gum.
Just want to know if anyone has this problem with vomiting when they have an infection before it is treated.
Today is my birthday (64 years) and I am still feeling awful so I couldn't go out with my family. In the photo I am holding a cake a friend sent me yesterday with flowers and no it's not wine I'm holding it's grape juice.
