With the doctor's pre-occupation about my blood work they all ignored what was going wrong with my tongue. Finally on Monday when my tongue was coated white I bought a tongue scraper to try to get my tongue all clean again. Well I started to scrape and it hurt a lot. These scrapers are not soft.
Then I am talking to my brother and he says you probably have Thrush. I google it and what it is is a yeast infection. It usually happens to kids and the elderly. People who have an allergic reaction to an antibiotic or have a low immune system are susceptible to getting it.
So I had to get this swill and swallow mouthwash and take it for 7 days 4 times a day.
The good news is it is working. The bad news is with yeast infections you cannot eat all the foods I love. Bread, baked goods, foods with sugars in them, dairy products and alcohol. Maybe all that explains why I have lost so much weight. I haven't been this thin since high school.
So by the time I get better on Monday is the bone marrow biopsy.
What a January! I took the leave of absence from work so I can get better. It is just a matter of time.
