Rifaximin Post-Treatment, Day 4

7:30 am – Woke up two hours earlier than normal feeling nice and refreshed (!!), but was too cozy and decided to go back to sleep. It was surprisingly difficult to fall back asleep as I felt wide awake – another good sign.

8:30 – Woke up for realsies. Feeling pretty refreshed. Head feels woozy, mild headache, I’m a bit nauseous, stomach really hurts. Again this is coming in waves. But I’m thinking clearly, the head pressure is very tolerable, and I’m in a MUCH better mood. I actually feel like being around people again.

Upon Waking

(high = bad)
Sensitivity to FODMAPS – ?/10
Brain fog – 1/10
Head pressure – 1/10
Bloating – 3/10
Anxiety – 1/10
Depression – 0/10

(high = good)
Overall well being – 8/10

6:00 pm Die off started getting really intense, again in waves. Headaches, nausea and a sore stomach mostly. Once the symptoms hit their peak the depression kicked back in and also started coming and going in waves. Easier to deal with this time around though as I’m feeling better everywhere else.

11:00 pm Upon going to bed I felt clear headed and calm – good overall despite the depression.
