Happy Hump Day!

Hello fellow Sparklers!
I'm FINALLY starting to feel like normal again! Whatever normal is....lol It's only been 3.5 weeks! Goodness. I can't seem to wrap my head around these allergies!
Last week my biggest obstacle was feeling lethargic and tired all the time. All I wanted to do was sleeeeep!
Then Saturday, while still tired, I started the four day headache/migraine marathon. Back and forth from really bad headaches to migraines with the nauseousness and light sensitivity. It was grueling...especially during a three day long weekend that is supposed to be fun! lol
Then Monday night I awoke with a pain in my upper abdomen/under breasts that hurt when I was flat on the bed or sitting. I paced. I have had this pain before but when I finally went to the doctor they did a MRI which showed nothing and after a consult with a gastrointestinal doc, finally chalked it up to a deep acid reflux. I know what the normal esophageal acid reflux feels like and this feels nothing like that! It feels like I'm dying! I usually get short of breath and normally the pain will last about 15-20 minutes. Monday night it lasted a little longer and I had two episodes. Once it is done though, I feel totally fine. Blood pressure is normal. All is well. So I have no idea what it is....but it makes me leery to fall asleep!
Yesterday, after another all day headache, I went to the chiropractor and within 30 minutes of getting cracked I felt fine! I love my chiropractor! He said my neck was substantially out of whack and could have been causing much of the pain. So today is finally the first day I feel halfway decent. Yeah!!! Still a little short of breath but that is my own fault since I did not use my inhaler for a couple of days due to all of the other drugs I was ingesting--I kinda feel a little foggy from all the meds. But today I am back to inhaling! Soooo, steroids are finished, antibiotics are finally finished, and hopefully Excedrin migraine and/or ibuprofen pills are finished. I'm also in hopes that stopping all these pills will make my stomach feel tons better! I can finally see the light out of the sickness!
I am hoping to get back to working out and eating better within the next few days. I am not sure how I will be able to exercise with the breathing issues but I will find something doable. Thanks for listening and letting me vent. I am just so sick of being sick! I am not a fan of allergy season!
Everyone have a happy and healthy Wednesday!
