Lupus #Flares #Antibiotic

I'm taking Antibiotic for 7 days. Coz of some infections in my feet. Now I am having fever. I also have kidney issues. Tbh, my doctor said I can still work. For the past year I've been on and off from work. My insurance got denied. Lupus sucks. How do you cope up with flares up easily? It's affecting as well my income. How you find another job that would work on your needs ? Never thought I'm gonna have this kind of autoimmune #Lupus #Kidney #ChronicPain #Fibromyalgia #Grief #Anxiety #MentalHealth #Pelvicpain #Lupus #Insomnia #RaynaudsPhenomenon #Fever

I’d like some advice on the antibiotic I’m taking for a dental infection…

Hey, everyone. Thank you for taking the time to read this.

Yesterday I saw my dentist for a pretty big abscess on my gum near my jaw. I have a broken tooth that needs to be removed under general anaesthetic and every now and then, I get an infection in it. Unfortunately, the NHS waiting list for dental work under sedation is ENORMOUSLY long. So I’ll be waiting for a while yet.

I’m allergic to a few antibiotics, so I’ve been told to take Penicillin for five days. Which is fine. I usually get a bit of diarrhoea with it, but I have IBS anyway so that’s normal. BUT. This time… I can’t get this burning sensation in my stomach to go away. I’ve tried taking it WITH food and WITHOUT food.. Doesn’t seem to matter. I have GERD, so I suppose it could be that, but it happens usually a little while after I take the stuff and can last for a few hours.

Does anyone have any recommendations? Any handy tips? It’s much appreciated.

Thank you all in advance.
