I was in so much pain earlier that I decided to go to the Urgent Care, after all. I was seen by the same doc that treated me on the 28th. And he confirmed what I feared and was hoping I didn't have, but kind of knew, deep down I did.
I have frakking shingles.
No wonder I am in so much frakking pain. And have the rash from hell.
I am now the proud owner of a bunch of drugs and I hope that they are going to help me to feel better, soon. I took the anti viral and muscle relaxer a little less then an hour ago. I am beginning to feel pretty loopy so I hope that it kicks in and my back calms down, soon. These muscle spasms is enough to send me off over the edge.
Good news? My blood pressure is a lot better. It is down kissing the normal range, again. I am happy about that. I wasn't too thrilled at the idea of my blood pressure going too high and my stroking out. That could really wreck my day. lol
Shingles. Bah! This sucks.
I am very on track with food and water, I am under doctor's orders, no exercise, right now. Hopefully, my shingles and the sidewalks will all be clear by this time next week and I can start walking. Until then, I will stay on track with eating and drinking. Walking will happen when it can and should. Right now, I am going to concentrate on healing and reducing my pain. :)
Okay, I think I will go see what the rest of you are up to. Take care and have a great, on track night.
