Well, I went to the doctor. Besides taking eight vials of blood to test me for everything under the sun that might be masked by me having Fibromyalgia (chronic Epstein Barr, Mono, Lupus, RA, low thyroid, etc.) it was determined that I still have that UTI, the bacteria of which were resistant to the antibiotics I was on week before last. Worse than before, of course. So now I have a ten day course of Bactrim to undergo. And doctor's orders to rest and drink lots of water w/ gatorade in it. I think I'll forgo the artificial color in the gatorade and make some of my own electrolyte solution:
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
7 tsp sugar (can I use stevia instead, or is the sugar a necessary component?)
some lemon juice in
2 Quarts of water.
He said this would reduce the nausea that I experience when I drink mere filtered tap water.
So I hope this UTI clears up and doesn't consist of some bugs that are too hideously antibiotic resistant.
Oh, and I guess this will be a good time to continue gobbling the yogurt and sauerkraut, and any other live-culture foods I can think of.
