Yeah, I know that I just played this game with you all a couple of weeks ago, but I've got to play again. Something's going on that's kind of freaking me out. I've been sick in bed with the flu since Wednesday night. It started out as a classic flu: fever, aches, icky nose, coughing. Then when I woke up yesterday, most of that was lessened, but my stomach hurt and my back and chest hurt on and off (it didn't seem like my heart at all, it reminded me of the pleuritic pain I had once before, an inflammation of the pleuritic cavity). I ate twice (toast and later some bagel chips) but I felt horribly nauseous after each time. My right tonsil, which was always large, was now huge and touching my throat and making me gag. My left neck gland is swollen. I literally could not sleep all night.
This morning the chest/back pain was gone and I was able to eat without feeling nauseaus. I've slept a lot, to make up for last night. My tonsil is not as bad, but the neck gland is still swollen. And this morning the bottoms of my feet started itching and won't stop, and my left foot is somewhat swollen. My left eye got red and feels a little stiff as if it's swollen (I can see it in the lid a bit). My gums feel a little weird. My NIPPLES and areolas are swollen! And I had some spots on my back that felt raised, so I just checked in a mirror and sure enough, there are raised, red patches on my back!
I don't know if I should calm down and just go to the doctor tomorrow, or if I am right to be panicking and I should call my mom and dad to take me to the hospital tonight.
ETA: Oh, and now my right eye (the white part) is red and swollen. Oh, and I got my period on Friday, not sure if this may be important in the mix or not.

I have no idea what it might be, but if your symptoms keep changing that rapidly, I'd go now. I wouldn't want to risk waking up with something else! I hope you feel better soon! Yikes. Keep us updated! ((hugs))
ETA: I thought about it, and I'd definitely go now. No question.
