Sick Again After Taking Antibiotics. What Would You Do?
I am a stay at home mom of two toddlers. My three year old started preschool about 7 weeks ago. I have been sick for 6 weeks. Started out as the typical flu/cold (no vomiting) but just doesn't go away. It has been a consistent sinus infection... head clogged, ears clogged, sore throat, headache, feeling terrible, extremely tired, a lot of mucus.
Everyday I take Thorne Research vitamins, Magnesium, Potassium, Vitamin D. I still drink BPC everyday. I have wanted more carbs and less meat since I have been sick.
I just thought I would get better since I have always thought of myself having a great immune system. I rarely would ever get sick and when I did it would literally be 24-36 hours and be gone.
Week 5 I was so tired of being sick while taking care of my 2 toddlers I went to the Dr. and he gave me a 6 day Z-Pack. I forgot how good it feels to feel normal while taking the antibiotic! Day 7 I thought I started to feel like I was getting sick again and then Day 8 and now Day 9 I am right back to where I was a week ago. I find it so strange that I am sick right away again after the antibiotic.
So, the question is... Would you go back to the Dr. or just keep trying to get better without medication?
