We have determined part of the reason why I am so sick. I am allergic to the antibiotic that the doctor prescribed me! Ugh! I have started to feel SO much worse since I started taking the antibiotic yesterday, and after a quick Google search I found out that there is a logical reason- it turns out that the drug is a Sulfa derivitive, and I am VERY allergic to Sulfa.

Headaches, chills, extreme weakness, fever, etc. I just called the doctor on-call and asked for a new antibiotic. Unfortunately, from what I've read, the side effects take awhile to clear- at least a few days. Not good. It sort of seems like a cruel joke right now. A very sick joke.
