The last few days I have felt awful. My headache has been bad (worse than normal). I've been nauseous, dizzy, my muscles have been hurting worse than normal, and the ringing in my ears has been worse. I have also had the energy of a slug. Hmmm... Actually, I bet slugs have a lot of energy. They would have to in order to get very far since they move so slowly. Then again, maybe they don't have energy so that's why they move so slow. Okay, so I've had the energy of a sloth.
Anyway, back to the topic at hand. Over the last week, my symptoms, especially the fatigue, have increased. I just don't understand it. I have increased my water and gatorade intake. Yesterday I did nothing but rest, mostly in bed, thinking that I could build my energy level back up again. No go! I still feel awful.
My step-mom did mention this morning that my dad has had a virus that gave him a headache and kept him in bed for a couple of days. "I don't have any congestion or other signs of a virus, though," I said. She stated that he didn't either. Well, I hope she's right. I hope this is just a virus and will, therefore, go away in a couple of days.
If it's not, I will just have more to talk about when I go back to the neuromuscular doctor on Oct. 15th. I see the pulmonologist he wanted me to see tomorrow. I'm sure they won't find anything. Just like the other pulmonologists I've already seen.
