I went in for my yearly primary care checkup. I also needed this year’s flu shot and the 2nd part of the pneumonia shot I had forgotten to get.
Normally the pneumonia shot is given at age 65 but when you have crappy lungs they give it to you early because no one wants you getting pneumonia.
I love primary care because I ask a ton of questions and always get my answers. I love that our Drs Office have a message portal and if anything comes up you can send a message and get an answer that same day.
The new medication 1st.pill gave me a mouth full of pencil eraser size ulcers all under my tongue on the sides and underneath and in my throat. Needless to say, that is NOT the pill for me. I am on day two of trying to get rid of these mouth ulcers. Gargling with salt water and swishing some maalox.
It is so hard sometimes because my body hates medication and sometimes it has the rare side effects that most people never get.
Make sure you all get your flu shot so the flu does not spread to 1000’s of people.
Does anyone else have extreme reactions to medications?
