Post-Exposure: Fasting or Not

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

My wife is partway throigh her second week of Post-Exposure suffering, after having gone 2.5 years without an episode. In the past, she's dealt with the abdominal cramps by not eating for the first couple of days, on the belief that eating would exacerbate and prolong the inflammation that leads to the cramping, and perhaps do more damage. 


This time, though, the symptoms are sticking around longer, so prolonged Fasting is not really an option. She can get some relief from Bentyl (anti-spasmodic), but still isn't sure whether eating will aggravate the inflammation or cause damage.

As usual, seeking legitimate medical advice on this subject has been less than fruitful. Do any of you good people have relevant experiences/thoughts?
