Feeling definitely odd

So what's wrong with me? For three days I've felt like I'm just getting over a really bad case of the flu. You know how it is, when you've had a few days of ***TMI alert*** diarrhea and vomiting, and you're over the sick feeling but still all washed out? Yeah, that's how I feel.

I also felt similar to this a couple of years ago when I had that stomach bleed and needed 4 pints of blood and spent 4 days in the hospital, but there's no anemia or other evidence of internal bleeding (and believe me, I've kept an eye on things). If I bend over or stoop down and stand up too quickly, I start to black out. I feel like I can't get a breath deep enough, but I don't have any trouble breathing. Nothing hurts. I don't feel sick.

I just know that Something. Isn't. Right.

I've made a doctor's appointment for this afternoon (luckily she had a cancellation; I hate having a doctor who is so overbooked that you can't get an appointment for days even when you have a urinary tract infection) (I also hate having to wait a couple of hours because she's running behind, and she's ALWAYS running behind) and I hope to find out just what's going on.

I hope you feel better soon. Good to get things checked out, just to be safe, rather than ignoring the symptoms and waiting for them to go away, as I've been known to do.

Well, me too; it took me 5 days to go to the doctor after I lost all that blood!

Yep, I know that blah feeling...I've had it since this last Saturday. Cooped up all week long in the house...uggghhh
I had the same symptoms you've described. Not fun.

As long as I don't end up with a runny nose/stuffed sinuses I'll be happy! I hope you're better, DD.
