My Night and Day
Well, today I had another flare-up. It actually started during the night. I felt very restless and agitated in bed. I knew I was in for a long night. When you have suffered with symptoms like mine, you know the signs only too well. And it always starts just like the last one.
Before I actually went to bed I felt the symptoms gradually rearing up. My mouth felt awful, my tongue was beginning to fur up and the sputum was really bad, much more of it. I noticed it early evening when I had this irritation in my throat. I couldn’t stop coughing. It wasn’t like a tickly cough, it was a really annoying irritation, almost like something stuck at the back of my throat. This went on all night and I still have the cough today. My throat felt quite sore too, although I haven’t experienced or noticed the sore throat before. Swallowing was slightly sore, and again, this is something I haven’t experienced or really noticed before.
I’d gone to bed and just couldn’t get to sleep at all. The cough was keeping me awake and after tossing and turning for about an hour, I got up and went to get myself a drink of water. I took the throw-over from my bed and spent the night on the sofa. Trying to sleep on a sofa is not at all easy when you’re used to a comfortable bed. You can’t toss and turn the same, and when you are restless, you need to toss and turn. I decided to get up to give my husband some peace because I knew it was keeping him awake and I didn’t want to be coughing all night.
I was awake until at least 3.30am, that’s the last time I looked at the clock. I’d managed to fall asleep at some point but I didn’t get the night’s sleep I needed. I woke up about 7am (by my husband) who was a bit annoyed I’d slept on the sofa. He told me to go back to bed, which I did, and I slept until 9.00am. Broken sleep…. it made me feel even more tired when I eventually got up.
All day I’ve had the cough. I always have the sputum, I’ve had it every day for over 5 years now. It always seems to be worse on a flare-up and there always appears to be more of the thick blobby stuff. My lungs have felt a wee bit sore, although my breathing has not been too bad. I’ve felt it much worse than I’ve had today but still, it was very evident that something was irritating my lungs as well as my throat. My chest symptoms were not too bad either, apart from the lungs, I didn’t appear to experience any heart symptoms.
I also felt the tiny burning sensations I get beneath the skin. Sometimes it feels quite hot too. It’s like the size of a tiny pin-prick beneath the skin and it can give off like a burning sensation. I noticed it a couple of days ago, a few red track-line marks on my skin, especially on my arms. I only noticed two or three. I’ve seen many more before. I did wonder when I saw this that perhaps something was happening.
I’ve had a bad headache too. I’ve experienced much worse than this. This headache was tolerable. I also noticed my temperature was slightly raised too, especially throughout the afternoon.
Yesterday, I noticed a slight burning sensation in my bottom and it also felt slightly hot. It has been worse today. It has been quite itchy too. I’ve been urinating more than I normally do so this was another sign. Too many of the same symptoms were rearing their ugly heads so I felt it was only a matter of time.
There were a couple of things I noticed that didn’t appear to be bothering me much, which I felt was slightly unusual. I didn’t appear to feel dizzy at all throughout the flare-up and the eye symptoms did not appear to be bothering me either. I felt no pain in my eyes either, nor did I struggle with my vision. The stringy white stuff I get up my nose was much better too. (See post on ‘My Own Pictures Of My Sputum/Mucus/Slime And Stringy Stuff Up My Nose’ (images posted). Nor did my nose feel too itchy either.
I’m still feeling the larger worms moving around. No let up there. They have been quite active. I’ve felt pain around the rib area, both sides, deep inside my body. I’ve also felt heavy wriggling and fluttering sensations too.
I’m doing much better this evening, although the cough is still apparent. The headache has alleviated somewhat and I feel a bit better. I have experienced much worse flare-ups than this one. I don’t know why but I’m feeling slightly grateful that this flare-up was tolerable. I’ve definately had worse.
