I need to vent....I had the flu last week and this week I am not feeling much better. In fact, I went to work Tue and they sent me home because I looked pale, swelled and clamy. I realize that I was all of these things in addition to hurting pretty badly.
I called the doctor and he said it was probably just left over from last week and not to worry about it....I am to go see him today, however I am thinking I am going to have to do a phone visit because I can't seem to stay out of the bathroom.
The fatique is rough--followed by tingling all thoughout my body (which at first I thought was just anxiety, but now I don't think that is it)--followed deep breathing and dizziness and bathroom trips.
I know this is TMI, but my BM's are not completely watery or anything. They are more like a greenishtan with mucus.
I am thinking I need to go back on the edocort and that this is a flare from the flu. My doctor said he didn't think it wa a flare last week....I wonder what he will think today.
And finally.....not working for two weeks....yikes! My bills are going to be piling up because I don't get any sort of sick time.
