Woke up in pain
I woke up today with a very painful throat and severe pain at the bottom of my ribs. Its not a sore throat like when you get sick with strep;it doesnt hurt to swollow or anything. Lymph nodes maybe? I dont know what to think but it literally hurts to move at all. I often feel sore or uncomfortable but this is straight up PAIN. Im trying to sit still so it doesnt hurt. I dont want anyone to know. It started when I was at my boyfriends last night. I've been getting really bad headaches the past week and last night we were trying to watch a movie but my head was hurting too bad. I had already taken 2 Mobic and decided I needed more than just that so I took my last Tramadol after a few hours. Before then my throat had started hurting a little. I kept saying it felt swollen and he said I felt really hot, when normally Im like an ice cube. We got a fan out in his room but it wasnt helping much. Sitting up and sipping on some Pepsi helped my head a little bit. But my throat still hurt. I figured it'd be better in the morning but that painful swollen feeling in my throat is now in parts of my arms, under my ribs, and the tops of my legs. I was literally just saying last night how I had actually been feeling really good aside from my headaches lately. I can even lay with my leg straight up in the air without it being bent (thats a huge improvement over the past few months) and now all this today. This feeling brings all new meaning to feeling like I've been run over by a train.
