Update - I still feel rough but I want to thank everyone who stopped by. I'm willing to bet it is the Vitamin D thing. I had completely forgotten (old age?) that I had a serious Vitamin D deficiency about seven years ago and by OB-Gyn picked it up and I was on high doses for a while. When it came back to normal I was supposed to stay on a supplement which I did until about three months ago when I ran out and completely forgot about it. Even though I think you guys pegged it I'm seeing my doctor before making any moves. I called today to see if I could go tomorrow for them to at least do some blood work before my appointment next Thursday. I hope they can get me in and I hope they can find just enough wrong for an easy fix. Thank you all so much for your concern - you have to know I'm really tired not to answer each comment individually, but I'll be back on my feet soon.
I don’t feel good. I’m coming here to see if anyone knows what’s wrong with me. I’ve never gotten over a cold I got about six weeks ago. I was mostly over it except for an awful cough. I didn’t cough all day but when I started coughing it felt and sounded like I was coughing up a lung. Mucinex helped until I got another cold this past Saturday now the cough is back – more of a raspy throat cough and it’s always there when I try to talk – not great for a teacher. For several months now I’ve felt like there was something in the back of my throat, like something that is stuck there. It seemed to go away for a while, but these last two colds has it noticeable again.
Here are other symptoms I’m having:
Night sweats (not all the time, but about once a week)
Muscles cramps – feet, back, calf
Joint pain in my knees – worse than usual
It’s not menopause – I when through that nearly ten years ago.
I’m hoping I’m a hypochondriac, but it’s all starting to worry me. I just wanted to see if you all had any ideas. Don’t worry, I’ve made a doctor’s appointment too, but I couldn’t get in until the tenth. I usually just want to come home and sleep and I'm sick and tired of feeling sick and tired.
