Had a great first phone consultation with my new LLMD after my initial visit in...
I pray all is well...the NSAIDs may be causing the bleeding :(
Yes - he took me off that immediately and said to call G.I. doctor today!
Actually I got my numbers confused. The normal range for hemoglobin is 11.3-15.2. But also my hematocrit is 30.5 when the range is 80.0-96.0.
Do you have Babisia? I say because it attacks your red blood cells. The MD told me that at my appointment this week.
what state do you ljve in that you have a good LLMD
I live in AL but my LLMD is in NY.
Prayers to you, my sweet friend
Hey Maureen! NSAID painkillers can mess up your stomach. They seem to want me on those rather than narcotics. Probably not anymore. I have zero Babesia symptoms right now except maybe the RBC. I treated Babesia 2-3 years ago. It might stick its ugly head back out - who knows. Dr. H. didn't seem to think I do but said it is possible. Endoscopy Monday morning 6:00 AM. I have a lot of stomach pain and digestive issues so I hope I can get this cleared up! This Lyme stuff just tears me up! I just pray it is nothing worse than an ulcer or something! Thanks for prayers! <3
Well maybe you'll be able to get narcotics. Vicodin takes away my pain and gives me energy. Do not feel drugged AT ALL! I think It's a phenomena with Lyme.
Im glad you're having the endoscopy...6:00am?! Yikes! I'd have to stay up all night to make that appt.
I'm sorry to here you've been having stomach pain and GI issues.
