My asthma has flared up massively in the last few weeks. I
work with kids, so I always have colds, and I start work at 7am, so I’m out in
the morning cold, and several times a week I’m outside in the afternoon cold
supervising the darlings.
I have the most disgusting, wet, hacking cough at the
moment, and every time I cough my ribs hurt like anything. Then when I stop I
get a burning/numbness for a while (oxymoron, but accurate)… And then the real
fun starts and a dull ache sets in.
I’m no stranger to aches and pains, I’ve had Fibromyalgia
for more than 10 years… But this is just nasty. While it’s not the worst pain I’ve
ever experienced, it’s getting pretty high on the list of most distressing.
Nothing seems to want to shift it.
I've had migraines that have less impact on my general well being than this.
I’m using celebrex and panadine for pain relief, along with deep heat cream or a hot pack, but
nothing’s even making a dent.
