Sorry I've not been around here the last several days. I've been rather occupied trying to get back to feeling decent again.
So, anyone here ever come down with this nasty bug? I recently have. It hit me really fast too. I got up Thursday morning and felt a little bit of a sore throat. I paid it no attention, as I've awaken with them before and been fine.
However, before that day was out I was feeling the 'typical flu' like symptoms. Felt tired, my muscles ached and I began running a low grade temp. The next morning my temp had gone from a low grade temp of 99 up to 102.4. Yep,,,time to go see a doctor.
I went to a local clinic and was seen by the doctor. She took a throat culture and had their lab analyze it. Came back as strep. I was written off work for the next 3 days and given an antibiotic and pain med for the sore throat. I was told I would be fine in the next 24 to 48 hours.
Later that night my temp went from 102.4 to 103.3. I felt miserable. My wife was such a blessing as she kept my glass of water full for me and cooked me chicken soup. I continued to run the temp of 103 until Sunday morning. I could tell the temp was breaking as I was drenched in sweat! I felt very dizzy too.
When I wasn't laying in bed I was laying on the couch covered up by a few blankets. I felt so miserable that I didn't want to do anything but sleep. I didn't want to play games on my phone, nor talk to anyone on the phone. I didn't even want diapers, LOL!
So, here I am Monday evening and feeling better. The soreness of the throat hasn't gone away, but the fever is gone and so is most of the dizziness.
So,,,who else has been knocked down with this or any other nasty little virus bug? What did you do get to feeling better?
