I know for some of you this may seem like a really dumb question but let me start off by saying that I'm not a person that goes to doctors very often. Not that I'm scared of them or anything but I feel there is no point going to the doc if you have a common cold or other illnesses that your body can usually battle on its own.
Back to the point. I have been sick since Monday which what I thought was just a cold but since Wednesday I have gotten progressively worse. After doing a bit of dr google (don't worry I'm no hypochondriac) I think I have 'the flu' I wouldn't normally worry as like I said most of the time these things just need to run their course but I have had a few symptoms that kinda have me worried.
I have the normal fever, hot cold flushes, chills, aching all over, skin is almost sore to touch, runny nose, blocked ears, chesty cough etc
What has me worried is that for the past 3 days I have had occasions where I have had very mild chest pain, been very dizzy and extremely lethargic. Basically if I'm standing for more then a few minutes I need to sit or lay down which proves to be difficult as DH has been working from 1pm - 10pm every night except tonight.
So I'm contemplating going to the after hours clinic as I'm having trouble breathing (mainly in the mornings and at night) and the only way I have been soldiering on is by taking cold n flu religiously. They do help take the edge off but boy it hits me like a tonne of bricks when they wear off.
So what would you do? Being a Friday night I know it's going to be packed and I'll have to sit there in the waiting room for god knows how long while I feel like absolute death. Do you think I should just go to be safe or tough it out a few more days and see how I feel on Monday which is what I would normally do?
