I've felt so ill today, so I'll be brief.

I woke up around 4am in a lot of muscle/joint pain so took some paracetamol and ibuprofen. An hour or so later and I was sweating so much I almost left a pool in the bed.

I then took some more paracetamol and ibuprofen around 11am to counter the same pain, but 5 minutes later threw up - I have no idea whether the tablets were in there.

I was started to get lots of green gunk from my chest and sinuses, so I rang up for an emergency GP appointment. It was the GP I saw last time, and I explained I was ill again, had been ill 25 out of the last 30 days, and had been getting repeated colds/flu on an almost monthly basis. He said it was normal, to take paracetamol, and use steam. He prescribed me antibiotics, but post-dated the prescription 3 days. He was worried that the bacteria will become immune if I keep taking them.

I had some lunch around 1pm, and around 2:30pm I threw up again.

Around 4pm I started to feel very cold, but noticed my temperature was going up. I threw up again around 5pm.

My temperature spiked at 39.9C, so I took some more paracetamol and ibuprofen as I was feeling so bad. I could hardly walk to get them.

Clearly the paracetamol and ibuprofen work as some sort of vasodilator as I now feel like I'm burning up, but my temperature has dropped to 39.3C.

It's been a nightmare day.
