Even though the result discussed here is very unlikely, I've been have certain symptoms for the past week / week and a half. At first I had thought some of them were because of illness, such as strep. But have been to a public health clinic and no strep or disease. Plus, a few of the symptoms I have on a regular basis.
Nausea, and nausea connected to food (seeing, smelling, and thinking of them)
Frequent urination (15+ times yesterday)
Odd aches, kind of cramp like, in my stomach.
Elevated body temperature
Low back pain (have arthritis)
Sensitivity to smells
The smells one is weird. I have always had a terrible sense of smell and my mom has been sensitive to odors. Yet, yesterday: in the kitchen when the trash was full, I smelled 3 different bad odors, and one bad odor in the fridge. Later, the trash had been emptied and I didn't smell anything. Brought it up to mom, thanking her for removing it. She said it didn't smell bad at all. Then when we were putting away groceries after dinner, she was in front of the fridge and I was over to the side in the kitchen. The odor was so powerful I felt like I could gag. She still didn't smell anything.
So, even though I know it's unlikely to be the thing I'm thinking of, I still can't help but wonder.
