Off to urgent care I go in the morning. As soon as they open. 8:00 AM. I don't want to wait around for my doctor's office to open and then start all the when is the next appt. stuff. Plus, it's just the doctor and his nurse/receptionist. Sometimes they don't answer the phone and you have to leave a message.
I woke up at 3:00 AM Monday morning with a sore throat and some slight stuffiness, nothing too major though but that came out of the blue. I'd been fine Sunday night.
I stayed in Monday and had major chills. Piled with blankets. Using Airborne which always works for me and Nasonex which always does a good job for me with congestion.
Yesterday I felt much better. Not good, but huge improvement. Just had some slight tooth and facial discomfort, like sinus type pain, so I took some aspirin and it went away.
And then, at 8:00 last night, the chills started again and the throat pain. And I lost about 90% of my voice. I got in bed and was so cold that I was shaking and I just couldn't warm up and I couldn't sleep. So I got up at 10:00, added a pair of leggings to my nightgown, a pair of thick slipper socks and an oversized cardigan sweater. That finally worked after about an hour.
It's 2:00 AM and I'm wide awake. I finally just got up. Chills are gone. Temp is only 100.0, but my poor throat. I haven't tried talking so I don't know how my voice is doing.
It could be the flu, but I'm not really achy. I had the flu shot in September.
I didn't post this in Wellness because I'm not looking for medical advice. It's just a lonnnnnnnggggg night when you can't sleep so I decided to post about my woes, LOL. It's something all the time.

Hope you feel better! Good plan going to Urgent Care instead of waiting. I do that too! I had almost the same symptoms a week ago, mine was a bad sinus infection&up too with with aches. Hang in there until 8am!

I just took my thyroid pill and after I drank the water with the pill, I got cold again. Here we go again with the chills.
I didn't even turn our heat down last night like I normally do. I was too cold. The furnaces are running like a blast furnace, LOL, but I'm still cold.
