I'm going to sound like a right fruit loop at the doctors tomorrow
I feel like I'm always posting here at the moment.
Been poorly on and off for a while now, past month on and off it has been a very painful sore throat, on Monday I was sent home due to being sick and I was also dizzy with flashing lights in one eye. But today, its my tongue that is the problem - I haven't bit it or anything but I have a hugggggge lump in my tongue! I feel as if my tongue does now not fit in my mouth.
Am I going to sound like a right nutter?
Oh dear. I have. It started almost exactly like that. Do write down your symptoms and take them with you won't you, if you are like me you'll go completely blank because they'll make you lie down and your brain will roll around in your head and you'll forget (or at least that's the excuse I use for forgetting everything once in the GPs surgery!)
Hope for your sake you have anaemia or something easily fixed though!
Cut this from a post in Feb... still have same symptoms (the throat was AGONY!) but now also tiredness (constant) and general achyness, plus my flashing light eye and lumpy tongue. I told work they may put me down at the docs tomorrow! I put all the tiredness down to sitting my exams but now not sure.
Started with blocked nose and feeling bunged up
Progressed to bad cough
Then sore throat (I did, I think she did as she sounded quite hoarse)
sticky / weepy eyes (mine worse, could not open my eye one morning and they feel itchy, but not red, cannot comment on her as she cant talk but they dont appear red)
A week on, we both are still bunged up / sore throats etc.
However, we both have funny marks on our legs, and her on the back of her neck just under the hair line. They're raised bumps, slightly red, not spots, dont hurt. I dont know what they are. Mine are on the front of my leg, hers is at the back of hers and just under her neck.
