What a miserable couple of days! I was fine on Thursday. Went grocery shopping, did a few things around the house, DH went and got Indian food for dinner. I knew I would have to go to the bathroom a lot after dinner because of the grease in the food which is something I don't eat on a daily basis. Somewhere in the middle of the night I didn't feel right. I slept curled up under the blanket which is rare for me, I felt feverish, I ached all over, my sinuses were clogged and I kept going to the bathroom. I couldn't get comfortable no matter how I slept.
I laid down on the couch about 6AM and still couldn't get comfortable. My back hurt like crazy, I could hardle move. DH took my temp and it was 99.5, not real high. No stomach ache, I could pee normal, no pain except severe back pain and achy all over. I felt a little better after taking Excedrine. I tried to eat some chicken soup and crackers, broth and fruit but mostly slept.
I slept for almost 12 hours Friday night on the couch. Saturday the ache was gone, the sinuses had drained but my back pain hurt so bad. the Excedrine & Tylneol didn't do much and I had limited range of motion. I checked web sites for Swine flu symptoms and didn't have that, checked for kidney stones and didn't have any symptoms of that so we narrowed it down to a severely pulled muscle from exercising on Wednesday.
Today I feel better, I can move without pain and I can walk normal.
I've been on track with 8 cups of water a day for over a week now and I've been back in this miserable place for 3 weeks now. I still need to get my sleep schedule back on track so I feel awake enough to walk outside by 8:30AM.
