I ache all over, my BONES, my MUSCLES ache. These have been ongoing for about a week. The back of my neck hurts and is stiff and swollen a little. Also about a week. At night I am congested behind and way up into my sinal passages...I think I have some post nasal drip thing going on too, because my throat HURTS like heck. Started 2 days ago. My ears hurts. Again, 2 days ago. I have a dull sort of headache that comes and goes. 2 days ago. I am tired and feel apathetic towards everything, even food. Over a week or so. I made a giant vegetable soup yesterday and it was great. I will eat that again for dinner tonight. I have been taking Advil (600mg) every 8 hours or so. It helps a little, but I still have this horrible aching in my bones and muscles - mostly in my legs only. I thought I had the flu, but then convinced myself it was just a sinus infection so I called my allergist for an appointment but he couldn't fit me (Allergy season, don't you know) so instead I asked for an antibiotic to be called in (done). I'm going to take a bath with epsom salts tonight, hoping to ease the aches in my bones and muscles. Oh, and I have NO fever at all. I'm always a perfect 98.6 and my temp last night was 98.6. So, all you armchair general practitioners, what do you think? Just a cold or touch of the flu, a sinus infection, what? I put a call into my family doctor, but she's never got room in her schedule, so I'm not expecting anything for tomorrow. By the time I see her, I may be all better. Thanks in advance!
