So I have arthritis, degenerative disc disease, stenosis, sciatica, and bulging and herniated disks.... Again! This is an ongoing thing for me, my first back surgery was in 2004. After that, I was pretty OK for quite a while, only needing the occasional hydrocodone or flexeril. In 2012 I got pregnant and the herniation had started a couple months before, but I had no insurance at the time to treat it. As soon as my daughter was born in 2013 I had back surgery and another one 5 months later because it reherniated (and I'm looking at surgery again...). In the last 2-3 years I have been on gabapentin, naproxen, oxycodone, soma, ambien, synthroid (thyroid) and hydroclorothiazide (blood pressure) all together. I feel like I have a damn pharmacy to lug around! I also have the steroid spinal injections several times a year. Anyway, I have noticed that I have started getting yeast rashes in the last year or so. Between butt cheeks and under belly. I am overweight, however have always been very clean. I have never had them before. It did take me a while to realize what exactly it was, and my friend who is a nurse, suggested that maybe all my meds are wearing my immune system down, and in turn, allowing the rashes to happen. Has anyone else had this happen? Thanks for taking the time to read!
