Friday afternoon I am fine. There was a gathering of just under 40 people in our community room. In the middle of the night I awakened with chills really bad and a feeling of utter sickness. I put on another comforter and awoke again this time up temp and super hot all over.
I took the flu shot a few months back. I really am upset that someone who was sick came to the community room.
I started taking ibuprofen 2 tabs and Tylenol for fever. It brought down my temp. Every six hrs or so the fever comes back so I have been taking the tabs. This combo never worked on PMR or GCA. I took these pills and it eased the right sided headache.
What I need to know. I finally made it back to 15 mgs of prednisone down from 16. I have some break thru arms and head pains.
Do I stay where I am at 15 mgs while being sick?
I definitely can tell flu and PMR apart. I sure want this to go away. My kids were to come over to celebrate my birthday today which is on Monday. I don't think it will be over by tomorrow. At least with the Tylenol cocktail my r eye doesn't feel like it will explode. So I know that is not GCA. Going back to bed.
