Upset Tummy

After 2 weeks of indulgent eating and drinking in Florida (I did try to eat healthily but it was virtually impossible!), I've developed a tummy bug I just can't shrug off. Am thinking of missing a day or 2 (no more than that) of taking my anti-inflams and various supplements to give my system a break.

Has anyone else had a similar situation and thought of doing a similar thing?

I'm 43, have RA and am taking 90mg arcoxia and 20mg omeprazole daily.

    Hi, I'm sorry I can't help you as I have OA, so don't take steriods. Just popped in to say welcome!

    Sounds like you had a nice holiday, but I'm sorry that you have to suffer for it now. Hope you soon feel better.

    Sorry this has come up twice, the site seems to have a mind of its own! :lol:
    Love Sue

    Hi Wibberley

    Sorry to hear that you have developed a stomach bug after your hols in florida and I hope it soon clears up.

    I take arcoxia but not the stomach protector. I see no reason why you should not have a rest from these but I hope you do not suffer with the arthritis more as a result of not taking them. When I have had stomach upsets which is not that often I cannot remember deciding not taking my meds.

    Get well soon,

    Luv

    Hi Wibberley

    Another one with oa not ra. Could you ring your Rheumy or Dr. tomorrow and ask them? That way you will be sure.

    Love
