Sick, Sick, and Sick........

Sorry that I haven't posted in a bit, Lindsey and I have not been feeling well.

Lindsey has been out of school almost all week. She had a fever of 101 when her school called for me to pick her up on Tues. morning. She has pretty much slept since then. The fever broke Wed. night, but she was still achy and just tired the rest of the week. She is finally feeling better today.

I have not been running a fever, but just have no energy, what-so-ever. I have had sinus infection after sinus infection for the past 8 months. For the past several weeks I have been having headaches, alot.......and they have been severe at times. My whole body aches, especially when the headaches are bad.

So I made an appointment with an Ear, Nose, and Throat Specialist.

I thought that maybe my allergies were causing this and that I needed some sort of different allergy meds to get them under control, or that perhaps my sinuses needed opening up to keep them from getting infected. I saw him on Wed. and he told me that he doesn't think, from examining me, that I have chronic sinus disease.

He mentioned Fibromyalgia, but said that he needed to see what is going on inside my head first to make that determination.

He said that I need a Cat Scan. So this morning I went in for that.

I won't know the results for a few days, but I'll keep you posted.

If you know any headache prevention or treatments that work, by all means........send them my way.

  1. Jeannette, if these are migraines then something you are eating could be causing them. Be particularly aware of MSG - gives me a migraine every time. Other triggers are Wine, Chocolate and stress. Hope you find out what's going on.


Thanks for stopping by. I hope you take a moment to leave a message or two. I love hearing what you think of my posts!
