After I woke up on Wednesday 3rd February 2010 with no improvement, I sought medical advice. Of course, my doctor wanted to check my over and he was certain all I had was a viral infection. The usual self medicate advice was prescribed. Painkillers, fluids and rest.
For the rest of the week I remained in bed. I had no appetite at all. If I did get up even for only 30 minutes it required 3 hours sleep to recover. I continued to ache in my neck and shoulders. The headache was all over my head but mainly above my eyes and across my forehead.
The first time I got up, except for my visit with the doctor was Saturday afternoon and I was back in bed a few hours later.
