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.

I am so sorry you are feeling so bad. I will tell you that I had a stomach virus recently and my husband had it at the sametime. He was better in a day or two and I was sick with it for over a week. We seem to get hit harder with seasonal illnesses than most. JMHO
