A Sorry

By Maxwell1212 @MummyToTheMax
Most of my readers know I enjoy updating my blogs on a regular basis however over the last few weeks I feel I have let my readers down a little and have not blogged as much. But there is a valid reason....
Three weekends ago, I was very poorly. I had agonising stomach cramps and I was finding it hard to get on with my day to day life. I was tired and felt sleepy all the time, not only to add to this but at night I was finding it hard to sleep as I was in such agonising pain. In the end after a lot of persuasion and tears I visited the doctor and was told out of the blue I had IBS (Irritable Bowl Syndrome). I was pretty sure this was not the case however I was sent home with tablets to stop the stomach cramps. After taking the tablets for 2 days, the stomach cramps had nearly gone however I was greeted with another problem, rashes. These horrible rashes had started to appear over my body. At first I thought I may have been heat rashes and I decided to just leave the rashes but as the days went on the rashes got worse, they got more itchier and started to spread like wildfire. In the end I had swelling in my face, rashes all over my body and marks where I had itched the rashes so much. After many calls to 111 I was advised to go to the walk in center near me.
A Sorry
Saturday morning last week saw me pay a trip to our local walk in center. I spent around 30 mins with a doctor who examined me and came to the conclusion that my body was firing out a lot of histamine. He could not determine why this was happing however he believed that my own body seemed to be attacking itself due to a bug that I may have caught the week before.
I was given some antihistamine to calm the rash down however I found that it upset my body for the first few days of taking it, however after easing it into my system my body has started to get used to it. 3 weeks on from the start of my problems I still have rashes and I am extra sleepy, sometimes I end up staying up until 4am as the rashes will not calm down and keep me awake however some nights I am in bed at 11pm and I do not wake up until the morning. Some days are worse than others however over a period of time I am hoping I will not have to depend on the antihistamine and  I will be back to my normal non itchy, non swelling self.
