Wed teatime I started feeling a little crampy, as in period pain. For background, I don't usually get them and in any case, I'm going through the menopause and haven't had a period for months. I though maybe I was building up to a heavy period, as is known to happen after a dry spell. I went to the Chivers' anyway, but after dinner I felt nauseous and lightheaded. After a lie on the sofa, this passed and although fragile and still crampy, I felt well enough to drive myself home later. I took a couple of paracetamol and went to bed with a hot water bottle.
  I woke during the night with what appeared to be a night sweat but fell asleep again for about 10 hours altogher.

Thursday I was still crampy and listless, though I did manage to get out for a little walk in the afternoon sun. In the evening I was cold and shivery; later on I was hot again,

To spare further details, this morning I checked symptoms on the NHS website, prompted by a suggestion from Ven during a phone call on Thurs, and miraculously managed to book an appointment at the doctor's this afternoon. It turns out I have a uninary infection of some degree. I was given antibiotics with instructions to start taking them if things don't improve (they haven't so far) and to call if things get worse in spite of anitbiotics. Results from urine sample due Monday.

So far so good. I went to the pharmacy just along the row of shops for the pills, then to the Chinese for takaway, to save the bother of cooking. I was taking the shortcut across the corner to my car when I missed my footing on the broken tarmac and fell in a heap. Fortunately, I'd put my leather gloves on to carry the hot takeaway, so I didn't graze my hands. My left ankle feels stiff and bruised and the right calf muscle hurts. I also put my knee on my prawn fried rice while struggling to get up afterwards, so that leaked onto the car seat. It was still edible though.

Altogether, not at my best at the moment.

Urinary problems are no fun whatsoever
Hope that the medication kicks in soon and in the meanwhile try not to further damage yourself?
