I thought the nausea was just a left over from the Novantrone I received last Tuesday...after all, I AM often nauseated for about 3 days following my every-three-month-dose of the blue juice. But when it lasted well beyond the typical three days, I then focused my sights on the addition of Sinemet that was added last Thursday to try to supplement the Requip I have been taking for the last 2ish weeks for the RLS symptoms in my left leg (which, BTW, continues to keep me in constant motion...better this past week, but still a pain in the...well...leg!). I emailed the good neuro today, explained my plight, and TOLD her I was stopping the Sinemet as it HAD to be the culprit behind the nausea.
And now tonight, alas...my head has become congested with a bit of a runny nose and my eyes are tearing up as though I am attending a funeral! Yes, I believe I have caught the common cold and I wasn't even chasing it...LOL
I'd like to blame this entirely on the fact I had to go into work this afternoon for a meeting ON MY DAY OFF, but even I know whatever "this" is, it has been brewing and churning inside me for a few days now. On Sunday, it was all I could do to raise my body off the couch as I felt a bit flu-ish...again, simply blaming the Novantrone at that time. I don't seem to be running a fever, so if I can dress myself appropriately tomorrow, I'll still make an appearance at my dentist's office and go into work following that appointment...because I believe in SPREADING THE LOVE! LOL Or cold virus...whatever. I really don't have much of a choice about going to work as I have used most of my accumulated leave time and can't afford time off without pay. And besides, they've all been sick with whatever "this" is anyway, so I might as well just give it back to them!
My immune system has been knocked on its butt this past month and it's no wonder I have fallen prey to the common cold virus. I'm not sure why we use the saying, "catching a cold" however, because THIS cold seems to have CAUGHT me! Wish me luck...I'm going in...
