I don't get sick often (knock on wood), but I have seasonal allergies. It seems that after our move that I have allergies to more things here than were we used to live because it's an ongoing thing. I take an allergy pill every day and that takes care of the worst of it.
The other day I was clearing my throat and all of a sudden it started to really bother me. Not sure why, but it just did. I looked in a mirror with a flashlight at the back of my throat and there was a white spot on my uvula, but not in my throat. I figured it would either go away or get worse and went on with my day.
Today I woke up and I feel like I'm dragging my ass around, can't get motivated and have a dull headache. I drag my butt to the gym and work out thinking it would just get better (as circulation seems to make a difference with my head congestion from the allergies), but it doesn't. My stomach hurts and the headache is getting worse. I got in the car and finally figured out that this isn't allergies, I think I might be sick. I checked my temp when I got home (after cooling down for a while) and I have a low grade fever. Checked my throat again and the white spot is gone and replaced by a red spot.
So, am I pregnant? LOL, JUST KIDDING.
It didn't even occur to me that I might be sick because of the ongoing allergy issues I have. Do you get sick and sometimes brush it off and figure that it's something else, or are you more in tune with your body and can tell when you are coming down with something?
