Got up today with every intention of accomplishing something productive, especially since everything has been waiting while Ive been sick with the cold the past 3 weeks. I woke at 5 am and haven't been back to sleep. Though I'd have loved a nap, it just wouldn't come. I got my shower and it drained me so I rested and ate lunch. Then I attempted to get some bills paid and tax work ready. I achieved about 2 hours of work and took a break. After resting a good hour I decided to walk the treadmill and managed 20-30 minutes then rested. I haven't been able to do another thing because I was hit with total lethargic fatigue! I've had some fatigue on & off the past month, even before the cold. I'm also aching all over. Ugh, drained. Wishing everyone a peaceful & restful sleep! πŸ˜·πŸ™πŸŒΌπŸ’•

I feel asleep as soon as I laid down. Woke up at 5 am but I'm not as tired today. Still no extra energy to tackle anything. But at least it's better than last night. πŸ˜·πŸ™πŸŒΌπŸ’•

As the day went on I felt better and better. We went to eat supper & grocery shopping. Had just finished taking my night meds when I got choked on water. Suddenly I'm bent over the sink throwing up supper & choking to catch my breath. It felt like I aspirated even though I tried not to. Tears running down my face, a sudden hot streak of pain shot up the left outer side of my nose into my left eye. My hubby's trying to ask me questions, and I'm just trying to breathe again normal! Now fifteen minutes later I'm in bed with a terrible pain from my right shoulder blade going up the neck behind my ear and into the skull, over the head into my eyes. Omg! I must have jerked my neck in the wrong position while over the sink. This is worse than my worst migraine. πŸ˜΅πŸ™πŸŒΌπŸ’•

Thanks Michelle. I'm going to take migraine med and see if it will help. I haven't thrown up in years and I hope I didn't displace a disc in my neck. It hurt like heck when my hubby was rubbing voltaren gel into the knot on my right scapula. Worse than the fibro tender points. Ugh!

Oh Flappsy, I am so sorry to hear that happened to you. How are you feeling this morning? Is the pain any better? I hope that you got some relief from the Volteran gel and rest. I hate throwing up. I'm sorry that you choked, how frightening. And when you're trying to catch your breath, hubby is trying to get answers.. I'm sure he was scared. I'm sending you bunches of love, gentle {{Hugs}} and prayers that today is a better day. πŸ’•πŸ™πŸ»πŸ˜

AlwayZ, thankfully the migraine & muscle relaxer meds helped and I woke without the headache. I'm doing better today. And I hope I never throw up again! I really think I slipped a disc and that's why I got the headache. My hubby was worried. I explained to him later that breathing in & out was my predominant goal, not answering questions. He said, "walk I wanted to make sure you were OK & breathing." My response, "If I'm coughing I'm breathing. If I'm passed out then I quit breathing. " lol

LOL!!! I'm glad to hear that you're better, Flappsy!! I'm sure you probably did either slip the disc or seriously strained it. Either way, I'm glad the meds helped and that you're better and woke without a headache. I'm STILL sick. I have a wicked cold on top of everything else and a left side ear infection. I'm so tired and yet can't sleep because I'm so blocked up, I can't breathe so I can't sleep. It's 4:54am and I haven't been to bed yet. I'm going to open the window a bit because it's stifling in here with the heat on. I need to get some air and maybe I'll breathe better and fall asleep. Sending you gentle {{{Hugs}}} and prayers that you have a great day. πŸ’•πŸ™πŸ»πŸŒ»

I hate you aren't getting any better AlwayZ! Maybe you need a steroid shot to boost our immunity. My PND and congestion is much better, but the fatigue is keeping me down. The least activity from a shower to riding a cart at the grocery store, and then I feel so tired and can't do anything for an hour or two. There weeks of fatigue, and vitamins B12 & C aren't helping. My hubby takes a trip this week, so if I'm still not better I just may stay in my pjs while he's gone! Lol As for opening a window, I can't breathe if it's hot either. I'm praying you will start improving very soon! Hugs πŸ™‚πŸ™πŸ’•πŸ’•

Thanks, Flappsy!! I'm sure things will get better. I appreciate all your hugs and prayers. I appreciate you more than you know.πŸ’•πŸ™πŸ»πŸŒ»
