I am drained, frazzled and lonely. Took paracetamol two codeine, which perhaps was one too much, as I nodded off on the sofa and had vivid, disturbing dreams. The pain has mainly gone now, so I really ought to get the liquids in whilst I can (hopefully) pass them without agony - gonna start with a cup of tea, then try a few glasses of water.
The antibiotic is Nitrofurantoin - 2x/day for 3 days. Sunday will be the third day; if the pain hasn't eased up by then (without the use of pain meds that is), I'm going to an Urgent Care centre and asking for a urine culture as suggested.
PS: I also feel shivery much of the time, like I have the chills from a fever. Last time I took my temp it was normal, though. So I dunno. Don't entirely trust my thermometer but if I had a high temperature I think it would show something.
