Feeling sick after covid booster
I had my booster last night and today I feel run down. My arm is sore, of course but I have this fatigue hanging over me like no tomorrow. I also feel wicked cold at time. I am not running a fever but I am keeping an eye out.
I tried reading today as I want to finish the Linehan memoir. I just don’t have the right head space to read. I read a couple of chapters and then I had to stop. If I feel better tonight, I will read another few more chapters.
My aunt came to see my mother today. She was really worried about me when I was in the hospital. She wanted to see me but I guess every time she called, I wasn’t there. I don’t know if that means I was off the floor or mentally I wasn’t there. I don’t know if I still have the protection on my account from being an employee. I don’t recall any psych nurses having to “break the glass” when accessing my record.
My pcp sent me a message asking how I was doing. I thought that was nice of her to check in with me. My BP this morning was high but it leveled off after I took my meds. My pulse was high too. It is still over a hundred now. I didn’t tell her I felt icky because of the covid booster. It is to be expected the next few days at least. I am to give my weekend BP readings on Monday.
I called to make an appointment with PT today. Because I still have the visiting nurse coming to see me, I can’t have outpt PT just yet. I am upset about this. This is just delaying my care. I am going to ask the nurse to stop seeing me on Monday. I would have today but I forgot to bring it up.
My lower back has been flared up since yesterday. I don’t know why but I am in pain. I have tried stretching it out and that helps but only for a short period of time. I am not getting pain in my legs so that is good. I hope PT can help ease the back issues. I’ve been taking a muscle relaxant to help ease the spasms I have been getting. So far it has helped some.
