UPDATE! The lab results show that it is NOT dengue, just a bad viral infection. Thanks for your prayers as this means my recovery will be much faster. Still sick, but encouraged by this news.
I have been running high fevers, terrible head aches and joint pains for several days. Wednesday I broke out in a rash and my neck glands are very swollen. Lots of coughing. Yesterday I went to the doctors and he thinks it is dengue fever. I have had dengue before and I am not so sure if it is, as I felt even worse that time than I do now.
The lab work will be back sometime this morning, either way, I do have a severe viral infection with high cyclic fevers, and a splitting head ache. I am pretty much wiped out and coughing will not allow me to sleep. My eyes hurt too much to read or watch TV or be online for long.
I also am having asthma complications and he has me using the nebulizor and inhaler.
So, I spent my birthday yesterday in the doctors, and the lab, and my bed.
Last night I did get the best sleep I have had all week. I think the nebulization with the prescribed codeine cough syrup really helped . Sleep alone makes me feel so much better!
