Hello all, I am recently diagnosed with this, same story as many of you, I the hospital for 3 days, put for about 9 days more finishing my meds but have zero energy. Just taking a shower makes me rest a bit. Is this normal after an attack? The meds are pretty hard core on my body too.

    That has been my story also! For me the antibiotics make me hot flash, weak, dizzy and generally mess with my head!

    It was a chore going to the post office!

    It takes me 7d after I’ve completed the meds before I get an appetite.

    Absolutely normal. E I was I was hospitalised for a week and felt exhausted for quite a few weeks afterwards and took me a couple of months to feel better.

    Hi, I had my first attack three weeks ago.  Finished my meds two weeks ago and have no energy at all.  It can take me an hour to shower and wash my hair, and I don't have the energy to do anything.  Hopefully, in time I will recover, but it is really hard because I have a full time job and am now in my third week of sickness. I just don't know what to do.

      WelI I have more energy in the morning  and as the day goes on I’m exhausted! I’ve been off meds 10d and starting to feel stronger but I’ve been sick since Dec.  So this has been a long recovery.

    It takes a while to recover your strength after taking these nasty drugs.
