Thanks guys...it was definitely hospital time, for the very least to get that anti-vomiting medicine that worked wonders. Otherwise I would have been up the creek. Last night my temperature went up to 104 before bed. The last time I had a fever like that I had just returned from Africa and they put me in isolation, thinking I had some random African viral hemorrhagic fever! A bunch of Tylenol brought it down to 101.5, where it currently remains. I haven't vomited, though, and have been passing a bit of urine, so I'm in the clear. Fevers really whack you out like crazy, don't they?
Thanks for the hugs, peeps. I needed them!
Hey Sarita, after those 2 gazillion hugs, here's another gazillion going your way. When will you get relief girl? You poor thing.
I've had a few sharts since this all started too. Definitely humbling to say the least .
Are you in any pain Sarita? I really pray you get an answer as to the cause of all this. It truly boggles my mind that someone can suffer like you and "they" can't figure it out.
I'm pretty sure this has to be one of those Norwalk-virus or food poisoning bugs...I don't think I've ever been this ill from the Mystery Disease! I don't know, how can we tell? Everyone gets a stomach bug from time to time. Anyway, it's weekends like this that make me so grateful I don't have something worse...something that constantly makes me have a fever so high it kills brain cells or puke 20 times a day. I will GLADLY take the garden hose over puking/high fevers any day.
I've kept in some food and fluids tonight, yee-haw. Fever's just being stubborn but at least it's only 101 now and not 104 like last night. Having some stomach pains but probably just from all of yesterday's puking! I'm sure I will be immensely better tomorrow. Think I should call my doc and let her know, or just let her know next time I see her? Don't want her to think I'm making a mountain out of a molehill if it was just the stomach flu!
Totally appreciate all the hugs, as usual. You know I'd all bring you ginger ale and chicken soup if I could! Hugs to each and every one of you.
Oh you guys will get a kick out of this. I'm totally over my gut bug now (SWEET) but I had a throat culture done last week for this gunk I've had and it turns out I have Strep C! WTF, right? I'm such a freakin' loser. Must be all the kids I work with. So now I have to go on penicillin which we all KNOW is such a delightful thing for the guts...will be taking the probiotics like mad. I actually don't feel too bad from the strep, but maybe (maybe, maybe??) that's the source of my month-long fever! Maybe it'll go away now and maybe I'll be cured forever!
