Saturday Bo Staff and Muay Thai… Upper Respiratory Infection, Fever of 102

So no training for me on Saturday. I went to the clinic as soon as they opened. Because that night before I had a fever of 102, which is about 103 for me cause my base temp is 97.8 F. Pain in my chest, coughing fits, and unable to breath at times.

Doc tested for flu B, and Strep A. She did not see any evidence of either, she thinks its viral/viral cold. She checked ears, nose and throat. Took swabs and prescribed an inhaler for my lungs, cough suppressant, ibuprofin, guaifenesin, and rest.

Oh other than that my BP is great, I was running a fever even though I took meds before seeing her. I am healthy otherwise.

Saturday progresses. I am resting and start having ear problems. First it feels clogged, then I have pressure, this turns into pain, but only slight pain. I decide to sleep on it, cause I figure its just drainage from my sinuses and will go away.

I wake up at 3 am with intense ear pain. It feels like a ice pick is being jammed into my ear. I can’t sleep. Husband wakes up helps me by making a hot compress for my ear and lymph nodes around ear, gives me ibuprofin for pain, and waits. It is only getting slightly better, so he runs out to get me some ear drops.

The ear drops help relieve the pressure, but now I am having weird ear symptoms. Sounds of crackling, then sounds of a river, then the sound of static on a tv… My ear has been discharging a pinkish discharge, so we are awake and waiting for clinic to open up again so can go back in and make sure ear is ok. My hearing out of that ear is a little funky. I just want to know what is going on and if this is normal.

I will keep you updated as to what happens. But for now… No workout for me. Rest and recuperation is the motto. Thanks for reading… I will be back in the gym when I can. Have a great day!

P.S. Ohh my team mates in Muay Thai and Kali have all checked in on me. Said they miss me and hope I get better. =)

Update: Doc says I have an ear infection, so now I am on antibiotics too… I have a cocktail of meds I am taking now, to try to get my body to behave and kick this bug to the dirt. I will keep fighting, but that is all for now.
