That's almost every other week!!! On top of that I have been dizzy everyday since, and it's getting worse...my head feels heavy and I've blacked out, while standing twice in the past few days. I also have had on an off fever, which is back on the rise tonight. I had my blood drawn and they said my thyroid level was SLIGHTLY elevated, but that's all they could find... What the hell is wrong with me???

High blood pressure.

Hormones out of whack still.

To many antibiotics, you need to start treating from within!  Natural foods, juice, vitamins, green tea, chammomile tea, etc.

We have a juicer, love it!  Spinach, orange, pineapple, stawberries....what a great immune booster!

I get they've done blood work but have they checked your heart, ekg & echo?  Have you done an actual fasting glucose test?

How did you give birth? C-section, vaginal? Any cutting or tearing?

Do you think it could be just hormones? I talked to the dr at the urgent care clinic up the street and she seemed pretty concerned...but have not taken any further tests. Drinking green tea and eating fairly well each day though.

I delivered vaginally, but did have an episiotomy. I got DEATHLY ill afterwards and almost died in the hospital...I had the shakes and no function from the waste down..their was bacteria and placenta left inside me, due to a "mistake" from the ob, so I had labor pains ALL over again. :(
And I have been ill constantly since the birth.

It could be but they need to check them.

What are they doing about your thyroid bc that can cause dizziness & black outs as well.

Green tea, I suggest you switch to decaf; just make sure the caffiene is taken out properly so it leaves most of the good stuff in it.  Caffeine can have a huge effect on people.

No offense but most who think they eat fairly well can still eat better, I was one of those people.  You need immune boosting foods to help w/the strep.  Antibiotics actually lower your immune system!

Garlic, ginger, tumeric great health benefits & helps w/inflammation as well.

Allergies can cause problems as well.

Gargle w/warm salt water, change your toothbrush you could be constantly giving yourself strep if you haven't gotten rid of that toothbrush; everytime you get strep!

Very good tips! Changing the toothbrush, going to start on fruit juices, smoothies and look into different foods with health benefits. I am desperate!! :(
