sorry, I know I have been pathetically dying all week with tonislitis, but i do feel rough and scared today.
have woken up with a massive headache, but it is not at the front of myu head (my eyes feel ok at least)....this feels as tho I have been wacked with a baseball bat (I am assuming here, not actually ever been hit to compare) at the back of my head. to more my head, look side to side, up, down, sends shotting pains down my back and thro my head. i really hurts.
it also feel as tho someone is trying to pull my ribs apart......i wonder if that is to do with being so sick the other dasy, and so pulling a muscle, but surely that pain should start to ease now and it isn't.
am currently lying back in bed, resting my head on several pillows and proppeing my laptop on my raised knees, and the pain is still bad....oh, and my chin feels as tho someone is holdng it in a vice (weird, but odd).
i am on eurythromicin double stretgnth, could that be a side effect?? feel all wibbly too when i walk.
could be i guess......drank loads yesterday (four small bottle of water plus countless glasses of squash), but day beofre nothing stayed in.
maybe is is the tabs then.....thankyou for replying. i hurt so much i not feelign quite rational this morning...and i feel completely pathetic as i have been knocked sideways by this illness this time!
i feel so mean on the kiddies tho. they have been fab, don;t get me wrong, but normally we are so busy and have plans each day, and so far this week it has all gone to pot and they have had to ammuse themselves....and with two boys being the youngest, they are going more than a little stir crazy! hey ho, net week we should be oing away again to the PILs caravan in weymouth...they will get lots of playtime there.
i took anadin extra the other day with aspring in, and felt odd, so have stuck with co-codomol since.
someone else suggested gargling actually the other day, but i confess i am a baby when it come to trying that......feel as tho i am dorwning.
TBH, my throat is not as bad now as it was the other day.....feels very strange, but not as tho I am trying to swollow glass anymore (still feels like i have golf balls tho). tis the headache today that is the worst thing (behind the ribs even and they are agony....breathing is a chore too).
rib pain still there tho<sob>, and there is no way in hell I would attempt wearing a bra......even a support vest I have tried has hurt.
head is ok, throat feels strange (as tho somehting is stuck), but not glass swollow hurt anymore, and I am also terminally thirsty (I cannot drink enough....thirst never leaves at the moment!), but, compared to the beginning of the week, I am on the mend.
Hi Psycho, I'm sorry you've been so ill this week, it sounds as if it is really lingering. I think your rib pain could be related to all the throwing up you've been doing, I once went to the docs thinking I was having a heart attack as I had severe chest pain but it turned out I had pulled muscles being sick. I think also that your body could be shedding some of the previous injuries to your ribs, the Bowen would have set that off and it's just a total arse that you got this illness on the back of your first treatment. I have a very gentle technique for headaches so I'm happy to help if I can but totally understand if you want to just rest easy and get over this damned tonsilitis - are the anti-biotics working do you think? Hope today is an easier day for you.
