As you can see by the title, I'm not feeling very well today. It started last night & has just kept escalating throughout the day. It's not any normal kind of not feeling well, so it has me a bit worried. I'm going to describe my symptoms for you all & I'd appreciate any feedback as to what I should do. I'm a known hypochondriac, so I don't really trust myself in these situations. Bear in mind that I briefly experienced all these same symptoms earlier this year (January/February), and was told by my doctor it sounded like a viral inner ear infection. The symptoms eventually subsided & I assumed that I had had an ear infection. Well the symptoms are back & it seems wierd that I would have another ear infection, especially one that doesn't hurt my ears (it didn't last time either). Anyway, here goes...
My head feels very strange, like a slight dull pressure mainly near the base of my skull. I'm also feeling off balance and kind of dizzy, which is in turn making me feel nauseated. Also, I keep having random feelings of tingling in my fingers, burning in my toes, and the muscles in my arms and legs feel very weak.
I know this sounds like a lot of really wierd things, but I know I am not imagining it. I'm literally having Bjorn come pick me up from work, because I don't feel like I can be a safe driver! I can't decide if/when I should go to the doctor. Let me know what you think!
