Yesterday I was so incredibly sick. I had vommitting, nasuea, fever, shallow breathing & the shakes. All because I reacted to the pain killer a doctor prescribed!!
See it all started when months ago I had a flyer fall on me in the head/neck area in a cheer stunt & my neck made a huge cracking noise. I hit the deck & got pins & needles down my arm. Only lasted about 5secs, after that shock as I was lying there I figured out I could still move so all was good. Kept training. (We're a tough bunch cheerleaders!) And it wasn't the 1st time I had hurt my neck in my cheer/gym career, I've had a few close calls as I'm sure all gymnasts/cheerleaders prob have. Anywho all was good it was sore for a few days as you'd expect but I kept working/training.
So that was about 5weeks ago now & ever since then it hasn't really been quite right. It was sore for a few days (again as you'd expect with a major hit) but it stiffened up & I lost full movement in it & have this constant dull ache there. Now another thing that may or may not be related is that I've been quite sick lately. The last 3 weeks or so. Not sick as in like yesterday sick but definatly not myself. I've been tired like ALL the time, lethargic, no energy even after I have a dose of choc! Anyone who knows me would know that I'm pretty much a hyperactive big kid! So this is very out of character for me. I just figured it was due to the fact I haven't been getting good nights sleep due to my neck & the pain associated with that but this doctor I went to had other thoughts....
Which brings me back to the pain killer. He suggested I take the prescribed medication & if I woke up feeling all fresh & more relaxed we'd know the lethargcy & no energy was indeed to do with my neck pain etc but if not well then I'm off for blood tests. So now that I've reacted to the medication and now feel WORSE plus I'm back to having the constant neck pain things are looking up! lol. So where things are at the moment is that I'm off to get my neck scanned (ultrasound) today & as i have a cheer comp (QLD States) this weekend I won't be able to see him until the following Sunday as he is only at this practise on a Sunday for bulk billing.
And to prove I do keep going even when I knocked around here's another lump I scored about 2 weeks ago from another stray elbow at cheer- also came up fast & is pretty impressive I think!
