I dislike Flagyl immensely.   It causes me to hurt, all over.  In places I didn't realize could hurt.

The medicine itself makes my mouth burn.  It makes my cheeks raw and gums sore.  It also causes pain in the usual places (big and little joints).  I only need to take it on Friday & Saturday on the 2nd week of antibiotics.  Yesterday & Today were my Flagyl Days.  Thanks to the IV Vitamin C, I slept from 6:30pm last night (YES -- 6:30!) until 7:15AM this morning.  I only woke once and that was about 15 minutes after I fell asleep when my husband walked into the bedroom to see if I was okay.  Then I fell back to sleep and I woke up feeling surprisingly well. I actually only thought I had slept for 45 minutes until I realized that it was the next morning.  I got some things accomplished around the house before taking my morning dose of Flagyl. 

After going to a few stores (including hardware store and a grocery store), we came home.  I had planned to go to a neighbor's pumpkin carving party, but I began to hurt.  So I took a nap and an hour and 1/2 later I woke up in severe pain.  All over, from head to toe.  I don't like to take pain medicine, but I think that I"ll take a small dose of something to take the edge off.  I have to look to see if my homeopathic drops are allowed (because if they have even the smallest amount of alcohol in them, I can't take them for another 48 hours - can't take anything with alcohol near Flagyl).  I'm hoping that when I wake tomorrow I will feel better.

I'll be focusing on detoxing this week - on my week without antibiotics.
