Moves on to constant aching and twinges in the joints.
Also periods where you can't get warm or are too hot although there is no temperature involved.
Also have a mainly dry, irritating cough but that is not the main symptom.
I started this last Tuesday when on holiday and really resent being ill a) on holiday and b) in the summer.
The good news was that dh was around to keep the family going, but he is back to work tomorrow and anyway, has just announced he feels really lethargic.... Which is where we started. I don't feel strong enough yet to deal with the children and certainly not single-handed while dh gets through this illness.
Has anyone else had it? I can't imagine where I picked this up as it started when we were at the coast. Isn't sea air meant to be healthy?!
Sounds similar to dd1.
Funnily enough, hers staterd the day after we fot back form Bournemouth beach....
She's had her cough for 3 weeks. And has been happy to lie around reading lots of the time, rather than leaping around.
Ds3 has had a cough for about 4 weeks now, but he has been fine throughout so I don't think what I have can have been caught from him. Since I got ill, ds2 has developed a cough too but is OK. I wonder why I am always the one to get the aching and the lethargy, and why in summer at all? I have to admit to being pretty cross about it.
DG - Ia m going to email you in the next couple of days. DS2 has some more Dr Who stickers that he already has copies of. I can't find the thread where you said which ones you needed, so I will email you the numbers and you can let me know.
Ok, so sorry to hear you are ill, and hope it gets better.
Brilliant Saltire! I am....ahem....ds1 is so close to only needing the last 30 which we can send off for.
The cough is really the least of the symptoms but it is already a bit productive. Tomorrow, believe it or not, is the first day of the holidays I am going to be at home alone with the children. I really could do with feeling better than this.
