Well the past few days my asthma and eosinophilic esophagitis have just gone crazy. I've been using my rescue inhaler 2-3x per day and hardly able to sleep at night because I can't breathe properly, which I hardly ever do. And my EOE has gone right back to square one even though I've been strict with my diet. It's like I never started a diet ... food getting stuck, trouble swallowing, throat feeling weird constantly, constant heartburn, constatn stomach pain and nausea ...
I went to my GP today and got refills for my two types of inhalers, some allergy eye drops, two epipens (since I'm going to run a camp soon that's ~2 hours away from civilization), and I also found out I have not one but TWO infections! One of them I asked about, but the other I didn't even realize was there, a fungal infection on my foot. I just thought it was dry skin. Now I'm also wondering if I have the same thing on my scalp since it's been bothering me, but I completely forgot to ask. So I've got pills and cream and go back in three weeks if either or both haven't cleared up.
Seems my body is really struggling right now. I'm guessing it's stress and emotions from recent events. My schedule is not doing any slowing down but rather picking up over the next few weeks, so I hope with the medications things improve.
I'm off to see my allergist on Monday and get to tell him the diet was working great until all this stress hit. I'm going to ask him about medication for EOE since I don't want to feel this crappy when I'm travelling. Also need to ask about allergy shots.
I don't know if this might explain why my blood sugar has been so high and unstable the past few weeks, or whether the high and unstable blood sugar caused either or both infections. I assume getting rid of them should help my blood sugar issues, though. So next week I get to deal with infections, medications, hot weather, and travel. I really have no idea what to expect in terms of how my diabetes will react!!
