I've had a rough ride today. I seem to have had a reaction to eating a small piece of cheese and strawberries and yoghurt last night - I woke up from a nightmare after only a few hours sleep and couldn't get back off as I felt so unwell with stomach ache and bad aches and pains. Luckily I was able to rest this morning, but I'm still suffering with a burning red face, increased flu like aches and burning pains and weakness in my arms and legs.
The car broke down on the weekend and is in the garage today, so I was wondering how on earth I was going to get the shopping (no food in the house) and make it to my blood test appointment. It's that time of the month AND it was raining -all the odds seemed against me!I was lucky that my next door neighbours kindly offered to help when I knocked on their door and told them I didn't know what to do. He got the shopping and the she drove me to my appointment and I'm so grateful!!
I didn't have enough money on me for a taxi home, so I had to walk to the bus stop which was up a slight hill. I was so exhausted out of breathe and dizzy I had to take it in really small baby steps (the tortoise wins the race!), even so, I thought I was going to pass out in the rain as I neared the bus stop!
Does anyone else get this breathless & light headed feeling and of nearly passing out? I'm wondering if it's low blood pressure, particularly at this time of the month, and in the past I've put it down to being anemic. I can't seem to even take the stairs very well today. I don't think I've got any problems with my lungs. The blood test today to check for Vit D deficiency - I am hoping that it will show up how deficient I am and then I will feel better for taking high doses of it... that's my hope anyway.
