Wow what a morning. This is going to be REALLY short because I’m so weak right now, but…
I woke up this morning feeling above 100% I felt awesome and my chest congestion wasn’t even bad!!
I had my monthly book club this morning and felt great until RIGHT when we were ready to leave. All the sudden, I felt weak and shaky and lightheaded. A few months ago I suffered from panic attacks and thought maybe it was one of those coming on, except the feeling never left.
I got home and came in, laid down and was feeling miserable (like I was run over by a truck). I took my temp and it was 98.6 (I normally run about 97.5 during the day so it was a little high but normal). Then, about ten minutes later I started shaking and got SOO cold. I started coughing up green goo (out of nowhere…I’d been congested over the past two weeks but this morning I felt good), and so I took my temp again in about 20 minutes. I was 99.5.
My sugars have been REALLY high the last two days..much higher than normal for me even WITH insulin. So, I was wondering if I was getting sick or maybe just needed more sleep…Well the 99.5 number was all I needed to page my doctor. I’m reluctant to go on antibiotics, but I’m not stupid. If it came on this quickly, it scares me.
By the time she got back to me (only 10 minutes from when I paged her) I was 100.5 and popping ibuprofen. She just called in a two week run of Levaquin for me, but if I start feeling worse I get to head to the hospital…no fun.
So, while this post is SHORT and probably sporadic, I’m curious if other cysters and fibros EVER have it hit them this quickly. Have you ever gone from feeling 100% to feeling just down right MISERABLE and with a sudden fever?
