Well today I actually woke up not feeling so rough so I got up, had my meal with my meds and fortisip. Just as I was finishing my meal, I felt overwhelmed with #nausea , #shaking and I had #heart palpitations.
I called 111 and they did an assessment over the phone and then I got a call back 40 minutes later. Again, another assessment and they sent out an ambulance.
Long story short, I may have the start of an #Infection because I have the start of a #Fever and also the other symptoms mentioned earlier. They said if my temperature gets higher then to call again, so have ordered a new thermometer as the one I used read 36.9, whereas theirs read 37.5.
They also said that being on codeine may have caused the sudden episode of illness earlier and said I could discontinue it if I wished to (and I have chosen to do so as I’d rather be in pain than that ill).
So it’s a bit of an uphill battle at the moment but hopefully things will settle down in time for my follow up appointment as they won’t let me go to it if I manage to have a fever (which is obviously fair enough).
