Health & Well Being Sunday #5

This is going to be a very quick and very short update due to the fact that since my last Health and Well Being Post, I have been ill. I have had a chest infection which has been really painful. Initially I thought I had pulled a muscle in my chest but as the pain did not go away. Due to amount of pain I was in I decided it might be a good idea to go to the doctors, who confirmed it was indeed a chest infection but as my chest was clear there was no need for antibiotics. I did get some pain killers that made me feel very ill, so didn’t take them for long.

Due to the pain in my chest I have not been sleeping very well. Now lack of sleep is one of my triggers for migraines and I suspect this is why I have been completely floored by a migraine over the past few days. On Thursday I woke with a throbbing head which quickly turned into a migraine. I did attempt to go into work as usually I take the tablets and it disappears. About 90 minutes after arriving at work I was back home, in bed. I did not move for 6 hours. It hurt to much. Thursday night the pain lessened and on Friday it came back with a vengeance. Saturday was better sort of and today (Sunday) has been okay.

So as you can imagine exercising has not happened very much at all. Healthy eating and water drinking have but that is it.

I am hoping that tomorrow all my aches and pain will be better if not gone and so next time I do one of these Health and Well Being posts it will be more positive. Look out for Post 6 in two weeks time xx
