I was out of work for roughly one week at the end of January, just feeling really run down, slight chills, but I think my temperature was just under 98.6. I had the full blown snot situation, which eventually sunk into my lungs and I spent another week just getting through the nagging cough.
I finally went to urgent care for that sickness, (after having unsuccessfully tried to return to work) and the doc said probably a cold, gave me a script for Zpack and we both agreed to wait and see if it gets better before taking antibiotic. It eventually started getting better so I never took it.
Then for what I'm guessing is 1-3 weeks I was just fine, all better.
Here we are in February, and, once again Saturday morning I notice I'm feeling a little off, a little grumpy. By mid to late day Saturday I'm starting to feel run down. I wake up today and my body aches a bit, have felt chills may have a bit of a fever, and a slight cough with some phlegm.
What gives? I don't know if I'll need to call into work AGAIN, this would be like the 3rd monday in the last 2 months I've called in.
And, I got a flu shot (which I know they are saying wasn't effective)
What would you guys do? I've been just resting all day today.
This sucks guys, I'm so frustrated...and it has nothing to do with bowel movements.
