Sunday afternoon I came down with a slight cough, which got progressively worse into Monday. I took codeine cough syrup and Tylenol PM at 5:30pm and slept til almost 5am Tuesday. Got through about a half day of work then called it quits and came home. I also had a fever that kept going up, and was at 101 last night when I went to bed.
I woke up at 3:30 this morning and seemed to feel ok, until I went in the bathroom and found my temp was now over 102. I was so hot and sick I was actually scared. I wobbled into the office to get my water cup so I could take some Tylenol. I was standing behind my chair with my hands resting on it when I suddenly had a horrible pain in my head. It took me about 5-10 seconds to realize that I was now laying down, and a few more seconds to piece together that I had blacked out and smacked my head on the bookcase when I fell, hence the sudden pain.
I layed there for awhile because it was nice and cool on the floor, and when I finally got back up and into the bathroom found my temp had dropped a degree. Now it’s down to 99, but I’m still going to get a doc appt. when they open at 9.
