It’s been a tough few weeks for me physically. Ever since I returned from my trip to Phoenix, AZ in late January, I’ve been dealing with some sort of illness. A day after I returned home, I had aches and numbness throughout my body. I spent the night trying to stay warm under heavy blankets, eventually sweating it out.
The body aches were replaced with a nasty cough, congestion, and a sore throat. It took about a week and a half to start feeling better. However, a few days after that, I got sick again. This time, it was a sore throat, bad congestion, and a continuation of the nasty cough.
The congestion has started to break up and I’m feeling a bit better. However, I still have an issue with my throat where it hurts when I swallow. It’s probably swollen lymph nodes or something. To top things off, I’ve been battling swimmer’s ear. I have no idea how this happened other than from taking a shower.
I normally don’t have a reason to visit the doctor, but I’m out of options at this point. I have to get this ear problem fixed and I also need to figure out the throat issue. It would be nice to get rid of this nasty cough as well.
So the first thing on my priority list today is to make an appointment and see the doctor, something I haven’t done in more than a decade.
