Yep it started wednesday. I'm just now feeling better. I had a massive headache, near both my eyes. a high fever and the feeling like a zombie. I
couldn't even move my eyes without a blinding migraine (I don't normally get headaches and I wasn't sure what could help since I don't really like
taking medicine. Medicine makes me feel funny) I also couldn't eat except fruit or vegetables, I had chills and hot flashes and my skin felt
sensitive like I burned it. My fever finally broke last night, but I still have the headache though much milder. The worst of it started Friday night
and ended Sunday night. My nurse MIL said it was the flu. I believe it was swine flu brought on by the vaccinations in the area because after I took
my husband to the airport 9 days ago, my daughter had an allergy attack and I couldn't figure out why. She was wheezing up until wed. and that's
when I became ill. She is highly allergic to eggs and her doctor said not to have her around anyone who has had an egg vac. because of a reaction she
had when she was a baby. Our area is one of the test areas and we also have a military base here we visited that day. I think the base is giving the
vac to their people.
I helped my symptoms by using my herb book. It said an old remedy was make a tea with garlic clove, fresh ginger, lemon juice, and honey. It really
helped and tasted pretty good.
I live in Western Washington
