Sunday, I totally over did it. Started with a 4+ mile walk with Cerberus. He was on a tear. Then I felt compelled to get the bicycle down and do a modest ride.
I had awoken with some pain below and behind my left ear, but it was more of a discomfort than anything worrying. I truly though I had just slept wrong.
Then middle of the night Sunday/Monday I woke up to void my bladder, and I had the shivers. Crap. About 3:00AM I took my temperature, and it was 99.4.
Woke up about 6:00 and my temperature had risen to 100.8, and I was feeling achy all over. The pain behind and below my ear had moved both up and down.
So, a quick telehealth appointment, and a referral for a COVID test, and now I wait.
Never before have I hoped that this is either an early season flu, or something else. But I have my doubts.
Sleeping, lots of gatorade, and tylenol to help cut the fever while I await the results of my test.
One thing is positive, I have no respiratory symptoms. So there is that!
