Fever-ish…

  I have a fever.  It’s day two of this nasty thing.  I don’t know why, but I’m kind of obsessed with it.  I guess because I really don’t have any other symptoms.  I have a fever and I’m tired….tired from the fever.  I guess you’d call that weakness?  I’ve even posted about it on facebook several times.    I just think it’s weird because it’s been my experience that a fever is usually accompanied by other symptoms, and you can kind of say “oh, I have strep”  or  “I probably have the flu…or cold”  or whatever.  But, there is NOTHING else to speak of.   This did happen to me once before and I had pnuemonia.  It started with pain in my thighs, it felt like ripped muscles, and then I got a fever.  This went on for almost a week.  I think husband was getting irritated with me because I slept on the couch the whole time, with nothing but a fever….I suspect he might have been thinking I was faking it or something because I didn’t have any symptoms.  I just laid there and got worse by the day, until one day I couldn’t get up.  I was too weak to move.  I called my mom and she came over and carried me to the car, and drove me to the ER.  I slept in a wheel chair in the waiting room for about an hour before they took me back.   They took my vitals and did a CBC.   My blood pressure was very low, my heart rate was really fast and I was anemic.  I don’t know who thought to check, but some one immediately suspected pnuemonia, and sent me for chest xrays…sure enough they were right.  I called my husband, and he was quite shocked, as was I.  I didn’t realize you could have pnuemonia and only have a fever.  They said the pain in my legs was a symptom.  Who would have known?  

So, maybe this is why I’m obsessed with a fever?  LOL    So anyway, that’s what I’m sharing with you today….for now.    I really need to get on the ball of blogging.  I’m glad I finally got some friends, though.  That’s pretty cool! 

Thank You New Friends!

  1. I remember having pneumonia as a child and it was awful! Sometimes when we’re overly tired our bodies will force us to rest with fever, exhaustion or aches & pains. With the past thing about pneumonia I would be obsessed with the fever as well. Hopefully you’re feeling better. Drink lots of fluids – natural juice and water – and rest… Oh, and take some Motrin!
