first a sore throat and now dizziness
So I didn't think I had the cold or the flu, just a bad case of the sore throat - I've pretty much lost my voice (this is day 4) and I have a lot of crappy symptoms (my head is heavy, my neck hurts, my glands are swollen, my ears hurt) =( I got tested for strep last night and it was negative, so that's good. Anyways, so after I went to my university's infirmary yesterday I came home and took the medicine they gave me, and an hour or two afterwards I felt SUPER dizzy and light-headed (almost as if I was drunk or something) I laid down but that didn't help much, it still felt like the room was spinning. I thought maybe it was because I had taken cold medicine and cough syrup at the same time, so today I didn't take the cough syrup thinking maybe that was it... but I got home from class this morning and felt really dizzy again! I had to take a nap, and now after lunch I feel ooookay but I still feel a little weak maybe? or a little shaky?
So I was just wondering... what gives? haha. I mean, the flu has been going around but I don't have a fever (I checked before my nap, I was 96.5) and I haven't thrown up or anything. Am I just getting worse? I'm not coughing or anything else, it all just seems to be from my sore throat. Last night I was kind of freaked out about it, because I've never really gotten dizzy or faint before... thanks!
