What ails you today?

Postby Kwacky » 31 Mar 2016, 09:28

Got an appointment with the doctor for this chest infection. It's been almost 4 weeks. It's left me really tired. I've been to the gym twice in those 4 weeks. Hopefully it'll be sorted soon.

Mouth ulcers.

I'm really prone to them. Bonjela does cock-all, Iglu isn't bad but 9 times out of 10 I get the ulcer in a place that will just rub off the stuff with my teeth or something.

I have two right now!

3 weeks for me, some sort of virus. Feels like a hangover and I'm falling asleep everywhere. No energy and I'm out of breath after 3 flights of stairs.

It sounds like we've got the same thing. Have you got a cough as well?

Flu bug, it started as a stinking cough and cold and utter exhaustion, now I'm just fatigued and dizzy after one set of stairs, which is a pain as my job involves a lot of climbing ladders and working at height, hence I'm unfit for work and getting stir crazy.

I also found out I had low blood pressure due to mismanagement of my regular meds, which means blood tests and more pills....

Not wishing to sound alarmist, but have you been checked out by a doctor yet?

That is identical to the symptoms I had at the start of my heart failure and it got prgressively worse.

Don't meant to teach you to suck eggs, but I also thought it was a virus/bug and/or quit smoking wthdrawl symptoms. I was wrong n both counts.

Cheers T.C. but think I'm OK as the wife and 4 kids have it as well, identical symptoms. Plus I had a full man health check up not that long ago, liver, bloods, etc etc.

Plus I managed to run a mile last weekend with my kids for sport relief, so it can't be that bad.

I do have to be careful though, my Dad died aged 46 from heart disease and I'm 43 now!

Doctor confirmed my chest infection. Right side is worse. I've been told not to exercise for 2 weeks and been given a course of antibiotics.

I've not been sleeping too well lately. My wife has started snoring.

Yesterday I felt exhausted, so I went to bed about 9.30 and slept.

Today I feel knackered but at least the headache has gone.

You might be right. But the snoring doesn't help.

I used to have that problem. One of the advantages of being a biker is wearing ear plugs. I wear them in bed as well, shuts her out perfectly.

I have used ear plugs when I sleep for nearly 30 years and SWMBO can snore to her hearts content :)
