The only thing I can figure out is that when I went up on the effexor that may be what is causing me to throw up . I called my doctor but he was out of town so I only took the 150mg of effexor last night. I feel sooooo tired this morning. and very shakeie. I called the Doctor today again and now waiting on him to call back. I have noticed that when I took the antibiotics last week I have less burning in my head with the headaches. MY THEIORY: I think I keep an infection right below where they can tell its an infection. That's why it doesn't show up in blood test. But I really believe its there all the time .When I was on the antibiotics last week it helped to clear out .My throat feels better, my head but my side is still hurting .I think my doctor should put me on a very strong antibiotic to clear my system. Maybe that why I feel like I always have a flu. Why I always feel I have a low grade fever. Why I hurt all the time ,because I did hurt a little less on the antibiotic. Q : How can I get them to try this to see if it helps ? Have any of you tried antibiotics and felt better? Q : Who has talked their Doctor into trying something and it has worked for them and what was it? How do you get help when they just don't agree with your views ?I think they do not believe FM/CFS. How do I find a doctor willing to lesson to me and try different things to see if it will help me ? I have been in the army medical system for so long I do not know how to go out and find a doctor. I can not go in search of medical care without Insurance to pay for it.
