Dangerous Fever

I’ve never had my fever spike before, at least not when I was in a place I could do nothing about it. On the way home from the doctor today, my fever went up. WAY up. I didn’t have a thermometer with me, but it’s fair to say it was a very scary experience.

I sat there and hallucinated as my face and upper body felt like it was on fire. (The hallucinations made no sense, and weren’t really funny, so I won’t bother you with details) It was freaky. We opened the window, so the snow would blow in on me, but it didn’t help much. It wasn’t until after I got more ibuprofen into my gut, and I had about an hour to let it do its thing that I started to feel human again. When I got home, my fever was below 103F, and I could think again. That was some scary crap.

The worst part? This was AFTER seeing the doctor. If I don’t start to heal soon, I’m going to have to go into the hospital. This is just crazy.

  1. Oh, Shawn! I’m so sorry! Sounds very scary… I’d hate to see you go in the hospital, I hope this junk goes away quickly for you. *hugs*

  2. Thanks everyone. The frustrating part was that I spent all day IN the hospital getting tested, x-rayed, poked, prodded, etc. My fever was 101.7F when I got there, but they never checked it again. After basically telling me I was fine and go home, my fever spiked so drastically.

    The good news is that Dr. Colon Cleanse didn’t suggest anything… crazy.

    I dunno. I’m going to keep alternating fever reducers around the clock, and see if the Zithromax they gave me helps. I really hope so.

    Thanks again everyone for your well wishes. 🙂
