After a lovely day spent in excruciating pain on my couch, I am actually glad I’m well enough to be at work today.
I’m not exactly sure what the bizarro illness I had was, but here’s a rundown of the symptoms:
-very slight fever (ran between 37.2 and 38C)
-paralysing body aches
-extreme vertigo upon trying to get into any vertical position
-intense glandular swelling, and pressure that made it feel like someone was slowly inserting knitting needles through my ears into my brain
-burning sore throat that also encompassed the rear half of my tongue (which is still a bit swolen today)
Sounds flu-like to me. Strangely though, I didn’t experience any coughing, sneezing, runny nose or gastrointestinal distress – all surefire signs of illness. Instead, the closest thing I can compare this to is coming out of general anisthetic, when your body just isn’t quite ready to cooperate with your brain yet.
Anyone wanna play doctor (not that way, perverts) and try to guess what the hell happened to me yesterday?
