The funky funk

The funk is back in the house.  Hopefully not for long.

I got my flu shot last Thursday (exactly a week ago).  I have never in my life experienced any side effects from the shot...except my arm being a little sore.  Well that night, I felt horrible.  I was achy, my arm was throbbing and I just wanted to curl into a ball on the couch.

Friday I felt great and drove to Tennessee and enjoyed the weekend (more on the fun day I had with my nephew at another time). Sunday I got up bright and early to drive back home.  I was a bit tired but figured that was cause I woke up at 5:30am which I never do!

Monday I was LAZY!  No motivation to get up and hit the gym as normal, so I slept in.  Tuesday I actually made it to the gym but didn't have my usual energy.  Wednesday was another lazy Monday.  Then, last night I woke up around 1:45am and my throat was killing me, my ears felt like they had water in them, and I was blowing my nose like crazy.

So, when I woke up this morning (late again, turned my alarm off rather than getting up for the gym), I decided to go to the local Doctors Care Clinic.  They did a strep test that was negative, checked my ears (which had fluid behind my ear drums), and listened to my lung (which were clear!!!).  So, she gave me an antibiotic and cough syrup to treat a sinus infection.

I of course reached out to my CF doctor to let her know what was going on. She decided to change the antibiotic to Cipro (750mg twice a day for 10 days), and said not to use the cough syrup as its a suppressant, which isn't good for us CFers.

I've been lazy all day.  I don't feel horrible, but I'm definitely not myself.  My throat is a bit sore still and ears feel funny.  Lets hope this crap get the heck out of here.  I miss my enjoyment of the gym!
