I was pretty wiped yesterday, although towards the end I started to recover. This morning I feel quite a bit better. I still have a bit of dizziness, which I think is left over from the Benadryl. I also have some dry mouth, which I also attribute to the Benadryl. 100mg of Benadryl though an IV is a pretty strong dose.
When I awoke, the morning I had the feeling the fluid on my left lung was reduced. My left rib cage seemed not as sore as before. I approached my jog with some trepidation. Jogging is my test of how Iâ€™m doing.
I immediately noticed less discomfort in the left lung when I stated jogging. The last few weeks I have felt like I could feel the fluid moving around as I breathed in and out. This feeling was greatly reduced this morning.
I also noticed that my aerobic capacity seemed a bit better. Experienced joggers will get into a comfortable rhythm of pace and breathing and this morning I got into that. At the end of my two-mile run, I felt like I could have done another mile. I havenâ€™t felt like that in a few weeks.
I feel like thereâ€™s an argument going on in my stomach, but I feel hungry. I still have no nausea.
Although this could just be a head fake by the disease, overall I feel better.
UPDATE: I wonder if the apparent reduce fluid could be do the the Benadryl.Posted by The Vorlon at October 20, 2005 6:14 AM
