Warning: Sick!

ouch!

Oh, man. My nose got blocked in my sleep last night, meaning that my mouth dropped open and I had one of my usual "can't breathe properly" nightmares. As a result, I spent some amount of time thrashing around in bed. I've woken up with my right hip in agony and my lower back completely twisted up.

I suppose this is nothing compared to the time I managed to both dislocate my right shoulder and pop it back into place while thrashing around in bed, but I feel very very hurty right now. I know I have a bad back, so I'm very careful about my movements when I'm awake and doing anything like lifting loads or dancing. However, I have pretty much no control over my movements in sleep. I'm good at waking myself up from certain kinds of nightmare (the recurring ones that are really, really triggery for me), but I don't know what to do about new ones that I've never had before.

Excuse me if I stagger around like a total crip today. Thanks.
Warning: Sick!

decidedly feverish

Oh, bloody hell. I had a hot shower about 50 minutes ago to try to ease the pain in my back. Got out the shower clean but feeling very sick, checked my body temperature and it was 37.7 degrees C. (Normal for me is 37.0-37.1 when moderately warm and active.) Despite sitting still and drinking water, it continued to climb to 38.1 degrees C.

I have taken paracetamol and still have a temperature of 37.7, and have almost thrown up four times, and now I feel absolutely freezing despite being fully dressed. But apart from the dizziness and nausea, I still don't have any other symptoms of being ill. This is really annoying.
