I have come to the conclusion that I need vitamins! I got sick....again! It seems like it was just yesterday that I got sick!
I started feeling my throat hurting on friday...by Saturday it was really bad....Sunday....fever... Finally I decided to take some stronger meds so I sent my hubby across the border to get me something. So I started taking 2 kinds of meds. I was in pain, my whole body was in pain. My back, my arms, my hands....everything was hurting. With the meds my throat quickly responded. I could eat and I wasn't in such pain. I still had a cough though.
I was what seemed to be getting better only one thing, I had these terrible headaches. My sinus were congested but really bad. I didn't have a runny nose but it was so congested that my forehead, cheeks and nose hurt. I started getting really bad headaches. It seemed too much for me. I mean it has been so many days and this seemed to be getting worse. If I turned my head fast or any sudden movement caused me to go into complete dizziness. My world would go black, I had to hold on to stuff so I wouldn't fall.
Today I was laying on the couch and I realized this wasn't going away, it was getting worse. So I confronted my fear of doctors and told my hubby to please take me to one. We crossed the border and found a doctor (I don't have medical insurance so I cross the border for more affordable care). Turns out the doctor was a friend of my hubby, they went to high school together (hubby was born in california when he was old enough to start school, his dad decided to move the family back to mexico. He wanted his kids to have an better education in Mexico, which is really good by the way. Don't believe the media that says it's bad in Mexico, they are very strict and teach a whole lot more stuff than here. Anyway...they moved back to the US when they were out of high school and started college here. Back to me->) So the doctor treated me really good and guess what? I have a Sinusitis...a SEVERE Sinus infection!
He prescribed 1 antibiotic+ 2 more kinds of meds in addition to the 2 I was taking already. I am on a 10 day treatment and he said I should be okay after the treatment. If symptoms continue he will have to give me a much stronger antibiotic but he thinks it wont be necessary.
So here I am... on 5 different medication, no energy, head feels like its going to explode, and my eyes feel like they are just going to pop out of my head. I really wanted to start once again with my routine but was you can imagine, I can't. I have no strength, everything hurts....Hopefully I start feeling better soon. I just took the first dose of all the medication.
Wish me luck my friends. From now on I am not waiting so long to go to a doctor.
Thanks Sparkfriends....hope everyone is all right and I'm sorry If I haven't responded to your comments, I've been in severe pain.
See you all soon, I hope!
