Today, my wife and I went for our annual flu jab.
She got the needle, and I did not.
Nurse asked the routine question: "Are either of you on antibiotics?*
My response of “Yes” meant come back another time.
Now I am halfway through a one week course of antibiotics, for something that is all too common in MS circles - the dreaded UTI. Wednesday I had a session with a Urology consultant - and this included taking a sample of urine with me. It seems that whatever the nurse looks for when she does a quick check was just over the line into the UTI area. The sample is now in the lab for a full analysis, and I have to take the tablets “just in case”.
So, do remember that antibiotics and the flu jab are a no-no.
