I have spent 2 full days in bed, going on for a third. I was feeling a tiny bit better there but in all started again.


Symptoms.

Excruciating headache, something i do not normally get. very sore raw throat, sore neck, aches and pains all over, sweating and night sweats like you wouldn't believe. bussing in my head. too.

noise and bright lights annoy me as does pretty well everything.


I haven't eaten anything for 2 !/2 days. except a proberry and a grapefruit.

I have lost a stone in weight and don't feel like eating anything. and my teeth hurt too lol

I am concerned about you getting dehydrated, can you sit in a bathtub?

I would take you to the hospital and get you some IV fluid but I know this might not be on your to do list.

My husband used to take a shot glass when the kids where sick and have them take a sip every few minutes, small doses of water or broth.

Geez that sounds miserable...I hope you feel better. I agree with Andrea you need to get some fluids in...can you suck on ice chips?

Oh we were posting at the same time, well just keep the fluids going in, maybe you can drink some of your beneficial teas...

Do you have Lyme disease where you live?  This sounds like a very bad flu or Lyme disease to me.  You might need antibiotics.  I experienced similar symptoms about three summers ago.  Was in bed for four days until my husband finally got me up, gave me a shower and took me to the emergency room.  Lyme disease is rampant in our area and because it was summer as opposed to winter, they treated me for Lyme.  I was so much better within three days.

I'm not sure if Lyme's disease is in northernireland. I did get bitten by a fly or something the other day.

I would be resisting taking antibiotics.

I'm not up for antibiotics either, but it would be good to get a diagnosis.  You can then use natural means for healing, but you can't do any healing until you know what's wrong.

I understand what you saying brinkskysail. but the doctors in this country just diagnose a "virus" and hand out antibiotics.

I can type now so i must be getting a bit better.

I think I have the flue and being a man it's worse than usual although i have never had a headache for several days.

do you have temperatire? fever?

Migrains can be as bad, but maybe rather then just liquid I would drink GENGERALE as that would replace some electrolights.. salts and minerals.. also interspersed I would drink Tonic water.. to replace other needs.. then eat bananas to replace the potassium needed for the heart to function and if you have some sea salt in very small amount in water..

I would also no matter the blood type.. cook simmer old fashion ots for 45 minutes until slimy..then strain trough to get only the slimy.. sorry I have no better word for it.. then eat that in any amount you can...  also possibly add rice to the same mix and cook for the same time.. again strain it and eat that.. if you can add a bullion cube for the salt content..

I am in agreement that I would also take antibiotics of need be.. they work and you can deal with the after effects later with foods.. I think this might be a reaction of having the body TRY to get rid of toxins by ecreting it any way it can, but the suffering sounds like worse then you should have to..
( like yes lime .. then also mosketo borne illnesses) I would if you can go see a doctor that could test for all sorts of things..malaria, lime and just plain migrains..  )  you have suffered so badly for so much time I feel for you..

how do you see doctors for You?  

may I ask could it be food poisoning... unlikely since its going on for days.. .. or is the flu going around in your area?  what are you taking for pain?  

I think you need medical intake of fluids intravenus?/

Do you have any help to shop for the above? .. can you send for a cab delivery??

you do need help..  


Being here is invaluable, but not enough. We need ALL the Doctors. I needed them for a very small cancer spot-I could never feel!!! Please do your mammograms! Doing so saved me from cancer later on. I am grateful! Thanks for learning from my experience! I was lucky! I wish the same for YOU!

PC.. this is my second post..... this is YOU.. go see a doctor.. now..

I was answering above for someone else.. with more chronic illness.. but the advice still is good..

but YOU know better.. never mind the fear of antibacterials.. better be alive and well and then fight on..

YOU DO need to know what this is called.. maybe not lime but a bite can be dangerous.. even from a spider.. or a fly..

all the best with love..

Allopathic doctors never do anything except hand out antibiotics ; that doesn't mean you have to take it.  When I was little, my mom would take me to the doctor all the time just to find out what was wrong.  I never took the antibiotics - just the diagnosis, and then my mom would give me whatever natural remedy was useful for the illness I had.

Oh dear.  Sounds like a bad bug (virus) to me.  Drink a lot of clear liquid, if you can stand to.  Water, lemon/limeade, tea, broth, etc.  Keep up the proberry, and rest, rest, rest.  If you can stand to eat a little protein or whatever else you feel like eating, try to.

Hang in there!

I don't like the migraine symptoms (photophobia--a.k.a., bright lights bothering you, headache and buzzing in your head).  Those don't necessarily go along with a "regular" virus.  I'm wondering about this "fly" bite now.  I hate to say this, but if this doesn't clear up in another day or so, a visit to a doctor might be in order.  I'm resistant to taking anything (like antibiotics), too, but sometimes it is good to go and at least find out what they have to say.

Meanwhile, take it very easy and drink, drink, DRINK that water (with lemon in it, ideally).  And homemade broth, if you have it.

Diarhea or are you urinating frequently?

If you're drinking a lot but peeing it all out, then adding some salt to the water should help you retain fluids. If you have frequent diarhea, then you still need to add salt to your water, but you'll need to be even more vigilant about preventing dehydration. It's also very worrisome if frequent diarhea lasts more than a day or so.

That sounds terrible.  Have you had a fever?  If so, how high?  Do you have any spots in the back of your throat, white or red?  Can you go to the doctor for a throat culture?  If something bit you, can't you see a doctor for that?  If you tell them you were bit, they wouldn't diagnose virus right off the bat, would they?

P.S.  In 2007, the last time I was sick (I have not been sick for one second since starting the GTD in 2008 ), I was REALLY sick.  I mean, sick.  Sick, sick.  SICK.  I couldn't breathe.  I almost called 911 because I thought I was going to suffocate.  And I had this, like, WHOOPING COUGH that lasted for months.  I now have come to the conclusion that I first had some sort of horrible virus/flu, and THEN it went into walking pneumonia.  I didn't go to the doctor.  Well, I have now further come to the...not conclusion, exactly, but "wondering", wondering if that lot is what caused my left-bundle branch block, electrical conduction problem in my heart, due to maybe going into an infection of the heart.  Mind you, that is just one of my wild PT theories and could not have been the case at all, and my LBBB could have NOTHING to do with that 2007 illness, but they have NO IDEA why I have LBBB.  It makes no sense that I have it, without any other heart problems that are usually associated with it.  I have stumped the cardiology community band, so to speak.  Anyway, my point is, perhaps I should have gone to a doctor in 2007 when I was so sick for so long, nevermind when it was so acute that I couldn't breathe, but I mean, when I had this COUGH that I had for MONTHS and that literally was debilitating to the point that I couldn't carry on a conversation or anything when it was going on.

Just saying:  I think you are like me about going to doctors and, speaking from recent experience, I can tell you that sometimes it actually is a good thing to go, just make sure you get a good one.  I recently chose to drive one hour each way to see an ENT in another city, versus any of the ones I could have picked here, because this one came so highly recommended in the ways that I wanted him to be--good bedside manner, listens, thorough, etc.  I would have driven two hours each way for that, in my situation.  And the guy was great, sent me to the best place on earth he could have sent me to for vertigo, and I'm FIXED.  Best medical experience I ever had.

You just may need antibiotics or SOMETHING, but at least find out what you are dealing with, IF it doesn't start improving in the next day or so.  If it starts gradually improving, I would not go to a doctor, either.  But I don't like the buzzing, the photophobia and the headache.  The sore throat is GOOD as it makes me think, okay, it is a virus, not something awful going on, but a virus can be bad enough.  Then again, there isn't much they can do for most viruses.  Still...I say, if it doesn't improve in the next 48 hours, get ye to a doctor.

I've never heard of having a sore throat with a migraine.  It could be a migraine, but that may just be a symptom of something larger.  could just be a flu-type thing though.

I wonder if a foot soak would help.

When I got flu back in December I slept all the time and took double dose multivitamins and vitamin C until bowel tolerance.

It is good to sweat it out as you are getting rid of all the toxins  

A few years ago I had something similar to you, but instead of nosebleeds I had hot tears coming from my burning eyes. The headache may be due to your temperature. I had to go to hospital for a bit but doctors said it was tonsilitis. I think i was given paracetmol and ibuprofen round the clock.

I think multivitamins and vitamin C every 4 or 5 hours will really help. Mum calls it 'magic brew'

It could be strep throat. Or, anyway, there's some kind of infection in your throat. If you're also running a fever, then that would explain most of the other symptoms. I'm not personally a fan of fever-reducing medicines- fever is part of the body's immune response, and shouldn't be suppressed. OTOH, if you don't have a  fever, then I don't know why you had the headache, photophobia, etc.

Raw garlic is wonderful for killing bacteria, fungi, and viruses, but it's not so easy on the stomach. I had a sore throat the past few days, and after eating a whole clove of raw garlic with breakfast, my throat stopped hurting (I'm not 100% better yet though.) Raw garlic can be very nauseating, though, so if you're not up for food yet, this might not be the best natural remedy to choose.

Gargling with salt water can be soothing to sore throats. Gargling with hydrogen peroxide isn't so soothing, but it's excellent at killing germs on contact (say, in the back of your throat.)

This is something I do when fighting a virus.  A couple of heaping Tb of powdered ginger in a large dishpan.  Fill with hot water from the tap.  Soak your feel until they are pink and water begins to cool.  Rub dry very thoroughly with a towel, giving a massage as you do.  Put on thick socks.  Keep your neck and chest warm and well covered.

Gargle deeply several times a day with warm salt water @ 1/2 tsp per 8 oz.  

Keep your head cool, even with a cold, damp washcloth.  Keep your feet warm.



Normal day, let me be aware of the treasure you are.
Let me not pass you by in quest
of some rare and perfect tomorrow.

Perhaps you could simmer a chopped onion and a handful of crushed or chopped garlic, with a bunch of chopped parsley and/or other dark green vegetables, carrots if you eat them, any other beneficial or favorite veggies, until all of it is soft.  Strain and press, season with salt, maybe a pinch of ginger powder, and a dash of olive oil.  You don't even need to peel the garlic and onion since you'd be straining it.

Sip it.    If you had some bone stock to use as the liquid, that would be even better, but at least the vegetable broth will give you some good nutrients.

I'm sorry, sounds like a bt O immune system reaction thing.  I was sick a lot last winter.  Can someone come over & boil you some eggs? You willneed some protein to recover.  Also fluids. Hope you feel better  .

I tried to eat some beef bone broth, no way couldn't face it.

I tried a tiny bit of egg, again it tasted horrible.

the only thing i can eat is grapefruit, water, vit and min pills and proberry, so far.

felt a tiny bit better today but still haven't slept properly for 4 days.

going to try some vegetable sop later.

I'm glad you're feeling a little better.  I hope you'll be back to full health soon.  In your situation, I would take the antibiotic alternatively with a probiotic - if prescribed.  But you must do as you think best for yourself.  I agree that popping an antibiotic for every little thing is foolish.  This doesn't sound like a little thing, though.  I'm so sorry you're unwell!  Get well again soon, Policychecker!

If you're feeling a tiny bit better, then that's a good sign. It sounds like you've been able to stay hydrated. Don't force food if your body isn't ready for it.

Compare your throat with these images of tonsillitis and see what you think (be warned, some of them are pretty horrible): http://www.google.com/search?q.....biw=1368&bih=682

I have had tonsillitis as an adult and I felt like I was dying I felt so, so, ill. Apart from a severely sore throat and virtual inability to swallow (even cucumber stung my throat) I had a terrible headache and was feverish and achy all over with flu like symptoms, absolutely no energy. I succumbed to antibiotics I felt so ghastly.

Sorry you're feeling so dreadful and I hope you start feeling better soon.

I sympathise! Severe tonsillitis is nasty.

Glad you're on the mend, but be prepared to feel wiped out for a good while yet.

Just the lack of food intake can make you feel shaky when you stand up. When your body is focused on healing, and you have little to no appetite, you're going to feel lousy. Once you're able to eat protein again, you'll feel better (then again, you'll get better before you appetite returns, so it can be hard to tell what causes what.) I'm not sure what you mean by thin veins- is there less fat covering skin making the veins more prominent? Or are the veins themselves smaller? You may have temporarily reduced blood pressure, from lack of exercise and fewer fluids than normal. I doubt it's anything to worry about, when you're clearly not about to resume normal activity anyway.

I'm glad your appetite is increasing and that you're not feverish ALL the time. Both of those indicate that your body is doing a good job fighting off the infection.

I have spent 2 full days in bed, going on for a third. I was feeling a tiny bit better there but in all started again.


Symptoms.

Excruciating headache, something i do not normally get. very sore raw throat, sore neck, aches and pains all over, sweating and night sweats like you wouldn't believe. bussing in my head. too.

noise and bright lights annoy me as does pretty well everything.


I haven't eaten anything for 2 !/2 days. except a proberry and a grapefruit.

I have lost a stone in weight and don't feel like eating anything. and my teeth hurt too lol




forgive me, it's kind of late and I only read this post, don't have time to read through everything, my son had these symptoms in October, it was second stage Lyme disease. If you've gone to the doctor, that is great and I hope you are diagnosed and well soon, if you haven't, don't wait any longer. I hope you're ok, I will read through tomorrow to see if there's an update.  BTW.....he did NOT get a bullseye rash until he was sick like this for a week. Took him to the doctor 4 times in 7 days, they kept telling me it was nothing, on the 7th day he woke up with a stiff neck.....E.R.....tested positive for Lyme. Best wishes!!!

I am 90% sure that you have Lyme Disease.  I had similar symptoms for years and finally was diagnosed last month with Lyme Disease.  Here's the good news--it's curable!  It will take long-term antibiotics (6 months to 2 years) and it may even require intravenous antibiotics but there is a cure for most sufferers!  Here's the bad news--most MDs don't know how to diagnose or treat it and many don't believe there is any such disease as chronic Lyme Disease because a Rheumatologist from Yale University in the 1970's claimed that Lyme Disease was a rheumatoid arthritis disease, not a bacterial disease.  They know now that it is a bacterial infection spread by ticks but the old misconceptions are still in the medical journals and 80% of MDs think you're crazy if you claim to have chronic Lyme Disease.

Go to the website of the Internationl Lyme and Associated Disease Society (ILADS) for help.  Do NOT go to the Infectious Disease Society web site--they'll just tell you you're faking it or that it's a psychological disorder.  The ILADS web site has real information, scientifically proven, and can refer you to a Lyme Specialist.

By the way, I also had the drenching night sweats and that is the result of a Lyme Disease co-infection called Babesia.  This is also a bacteria that produces symptoms similar to malaria.  Often ticks that carry Lyme Disease carry other bacteria called co-infections.  Common ones are Babesia, Bartonella, and Erlichia.  If you have Lyme combined with a co-infection, it is nearly impossible for your immune system to keep it in check all by itself.  You need antibiotics or it will get worse.  If it gets into your brain (which is has for me) and you don't treat it, you may end up in a wheelchair and be misdiagnosed with Multiple Schlerosis, ALS (Lou Gehrig's disease), or Parkinson's Disease.

I also have sworn off antibiotics and I don't even take NSAIDs because I had leaky gut with an overgrowth of Candida and H.pylori.  HOWEVER, Lyme Disease is much more horrible than leaky gut.  I'd rather kill the Lyme and then go back and re-heal my gut.  

Good Luck!

Two times in my life I had that kind of raw throat with white pus. Mononucleosis (sp?) was suspected. Both times I tested negative but they thought I had it anyway. It took weeks to recover. My sympathies and I commend your for maintaining a slight sense of humor in such miserable circumstances. Get well soon.

If your doc ran a CBC then he/she should be able to distinguish between a viral or bacterial infection. A lot of docs don't do this when they really should. An elevated percentage of lymphocytes will usually indicate a virus whereas more PMNs indicate bacterial infections. Sometimes a decreased or normal white blood cell count indicates a virus as well.

Wow, I pray you are doing better?????

I would say if you get worse, go see a doc.  Captain Janeway is right, a CBC is a good idea.  However, you'd have to see if your doc will actually run it.  But I'm with you, most docs over here would just prescribe antibiotics, especially if you have strep throat.  Or even if it resembles strep.  

Keep up whatever you can take in, hopefully someone is there to help you.  Fluids, you'll get through it.  If you get worse though, yeah, go see a doctor for sure.

Hope you get better soon.  If it's any consolation - your body will be detoxing.  
I read that when people get really sick with flu or colds, it's adrenal fatigue that gives many of the symptoms reacting to raised cytokenes - inflammation.  No wonder you may feel dizzy when you stand up.  Sea salt should help and licorice root tea.  

Hot fluids should soothe your throat glad you're having soup now.  Herbal teas may be good too.  Agree with Isa - lysine might help if it's a virus.  Avoid nuts, chocolate, high arginine foods - as if you are eating them!

There are many viral nasties, DD may have bought something home from school, e.g.  Coxsackievirus can give blisters on the throat and cause flu-like symptoms.  Lysine might help.  I was upset when DD had it and after one look at the throat the doctor assumed it was bacterial and gave her antibiotics (she'd had high fever).  She started getting better the next day but we had to finish the course and repopulate her gut flora.

I don't know about the licorice root.  If you have inflammation, many times BP is raised when you're fighting something.  I'm not sure if raising it even more is a good idea, despite being dizzy when getting up.  That's just part of being sick.
