Instant Illness

Yesterday I was feeling perfectly fine. So good, in fact, that I even managed to get in a 30 minute work out in the afternoon.

Around 3:30am, I awoke feeling congested and like I was gasping for breath. I was burning hot and sweating, I could feel my heart pounding. I had to throw all the covers off, even though the bedroom was quite chilly. I got up and got some icy cold water, feeling a little off-kilter...not exactly dizzy but more like I'd just stepped off a merry-go-round, like the very slightest hint of vertigo. After my drink of water my heart stopped pounding, so I went back to bed.

I laid awake not sure if I was feeling better or worse until shortly before 5:00am, then the vertigo feeling and the hot flash feeling had gone away. I fell back asleep a little while after, but woke up around 8:00am still feeling congested and headachy and shivery cold. Coffee on an empty stomach was a bad idea.

It's pretty unusual that I went from feeling pretty darn good one day to feeling like complte hell the next. I have to say I don't like it one bit. I may be forced to go back to bed this afternoon.
