My bladder has been acting up since Sunday and I was looking forward to going to the Fibro & Fatigue Center yesterday to get my IV therapy. The IV therapy has been a huge help in calming my I.C. Disease.
If it wasn’t for these IVs, I would probably still not be able to walk through the grocery store because the pain and pressure were so bad in my bladder.
I have been going back to the F & F Center once a month for the IV therapy because it is expensive. The IVs cost $125.00 each time I go, so I just couldn’t afford to keep going every week or every other week.
The IVs usually take an hour or more to fully finish and yesterday my IV was done in about 45 minutes. The nurse that put my IV in was not the same one that usually does it and this nurse had put it in a bigger vein. The bag was dripping very fast but I didn’t think too much about it because I always had them dripping fast.
Immediately after the bag was finished I had terrible diarrhea. I didn’t feel very good the rest of the day. By last evening, I had a severe headache and I was throwing up and still had diarrhea. I think maybe it’s from the IV going in so quickly, but I was also around my MIL, who was around my SIL on Sunday who has a stomach bug with vomiting and diarrhea.
So maybe it is that. I don’t know but I am still not feeling well today and all I want to do is sleep. I’m going to go back to bed for a while. My son is with my mom today so I’m going to take advantage of having the house to myself.
Hopefully I will feel better later.
