I could really use some advice. I have had what appears to be a cold/congestion, cough and phlegm for 2 months now. I feel like I have the flu. I don't have this really ever. With CFS, we always feel like we have the flu, but for me this is different. My eyes hurt...behind my eyes, I ache, I sweat or am freezing. I can't seem to kick it. I spend more time than normal in bed just trying to breathe. Due to the fatigue this thing is bringing. A little over a week ago my doctor thought an antibiotic was in order. I went on clindamycin. I was on it for 3.5 days. I developed so much yeast, it was gross. I used a suppository (sorry if this is really detailed) to cut down on the yeast. What ended up happening was that my intestine became totally inflamed and I literally felt like it was on fire. The next day I was on the toilet all day and sicker than a dog. Sore throat, everything was worse. My doctor advised going off of the antibiotic, which I happily did. He is wondering if it is a virus. I have no yellow mucus. It's clear. But my chest is tight and I am on mucinex. He now has me on olive leaf extract and oregano oil. These are not working either. I just had an extensive amount of bloodwork ordered and done. I already know I have high EBV and HHV-6. I am wondering if I should go back on the antibiotic again or just ride it out. I have not had anything like this since I first got sick. That was a long time ago. I have a frog in my voice and I know it is what is keeping my adrenals from working at all right now. I have been taking hot baths to sweat it out. Nothing is working. I am waiting for Valtrex to arrive in the mail. Should I go back on the antibiotic or I don't know??? All of these things to think about and I don't have the brain power, admittedly to make a decision. Thanks everyone.
