Murphy’s Law has been hard at work with me this weekend. Despite having a nice little plan laid out for my Saturday (taking my car in to the shop, doing cleaning and organizing until lunchtime and then reading and working on my writing), it hasn’t gone my way. I did get my car into the shop but nothing else went my way.
First, I went to bed on Friday night at 9 p.m. And no, I’m not in third grade but I was exhausted. When you wake up at 3:15 in the morning, lasting until 9 p.m. is a long day. Anyhow, I went to sleep at 9 p.m. and slept until 6:15 Saturday morning. Way too much sleep for me. I woke feeling groggy and hot. I felt okay when dropping off the car but came home and almost immediately felt feverish, heachache-y and, well, hung over. I didn’t have a drop of alcohol but I felt dehydrated.
I normally drink water all day long while at work. I shouldn’t be dehydrated. I felt downright miserable nearly all day. I felt queasy and lying down actually made it worse. I did start to feel better when we left the house to get my car, well enough for us to grab dinner while we were out. Felt decent when we got back. Felt okay waking up this morning but now I am feeling puny again.
The last month I have had intermittent stomach cramping, and not just after I eat. It seems that I feel “off” more and more often. I feel fatigued and tired more than I think I should. Going on sites like webmd.com will either confuse you, scare you or both.
I am wondering if anyone out there has allergies that give them these type of symptoms. Specifically, I’m wondering if there is a gluten or wheat allergy going on with me.
I plan on getting an appointment with my doctor as soon as I can, to get a complete physical and maybe some type of allergy test. I am hoping that will give me the answers. I don’t look sick and I don’t have typical “sick” symptoms but I feel so run down and just blech.
Any suggestions would be much appreciated.
