Unexpectedly Ill

     Don't know what happened -- got home later than usual last night thanks to some trouble at work, bicycled to the grocery for a take-home dinner (more of a snack), and before I was done eating, I was shivering, aching and dizzy.  I was watching a TV show and before it was halfway through, I had paused it and gone to bed, taking an extra blanket, a warm sweatshirt and a heating pad.

     I kept waking up overnight, with pain in my long bones, chest, fingers and toes, thirsty (and with the normal consequences).  Every 90 minutes or so, awake!  At some point I warmed up a bit and shed the sweatshirt and hotpad, leaving three blankets and a quilt.

     Yesterday morning, I woke with a sore throat and that never got any better.  I assumed I'd laid wrong and been snoring.  Maybe not.

      Off to doc in a box.

     (There will be no comments, as the temptation to quack-doctoring seems well-nigh irresistible.  'Druther stick with the normal practice of medicine myself, and I'm not minded to argue about it.  YMMV -- elsewhere.)
