Went to my doctor's office and fired him. I was there thursday and told him about my ears and my nose and my burning tongue. He shoved a tongue depressor in my mouth, causing me massive distress, brought tears to my eyes. Said, Um hm, listened to my lungs, prescribed Zyrtec (allergy Medication) and sent me on my merry way!
NOT ONCE did he look in my ears or nose. Dumba...!
So friday I went back and fired him officially and professionally, in front of his staff and other patients. Changed to another primary care physician in the center (this one actually diagnosed my pneumonia 3 weeks ago) and went through urgent care.
After Spending most of Friday early am on the puter, I discovered that what I was suffering from in my mouth was a fungal infection caused by all the antibiotics I was taking and it is called Thrush. I confirmed this by looking at my tongue in a mirror and seeing white patches on the left side of my tongue. I tried a home remedy: DO NOT DO THIS!!!!! it said at web md I believe, I am not sure, to do 1part hydrogen peroxiide and 3 parts water, gargle and swish in mouth.
At first, the first 10 seconds, no reaciton...then HOLY CRAP!
My mouth foamed up like I had the rabies! and the PAIN!!!
OMG in Heaven. after rinsing with plain water I looked at my poor tongue through tears and saw the spots enlarge by the peroxide. Now, if I could see the spots before the peroxide and after, how come Doctor Dipsh> didnt see em with a magnifier and bright light?
The walk in doctor confirmed my own diagnosis of Thrush. Prescribed Nystatin liquid which I have to use 4-5 times a day (20-25 bucks at Winn Dixie Pharmacy prescription only)
Difulcan to combat a vaginal yeast infection
Doxycline for the sinus and Ear infections. (yes, another antibiotic!)
She said that the zithromax was having no effect whatsover on the ear infection or sinus'.
