I haven’t been online much in the last few days, I know. Well, this has a perfectly reasonable explanation:
I was, what one could call: The HunchBack Of The Notre Arm…
Tuesday, I went for a walk with my loved one. When we came home I had a lot of itching on my arm but I thought: ‘oh well, stupid mosquitos, it will pass…’. Then again when I woke up wednesday morning the itching had evolved into a burning feeling, so I went to the pharmacy and bought an ointment. When I got at work I noticed that the ointment didn’t work that good and that my arm (right elbow to be precise) had grown somewhere in between 4 and 6 cm!! That’s a large swelling!
I went home, called the doctor and heard I had to wait until 16h40, so before going to the doctor I had to stand the burning feeling for another 4 hours! When I finally got to the doctor she asked me what bug bit me. I didn’t have the answer so she told me: “it’s an allergic reaction so I advice you to be carefull in the future”.
I was sent home by the doctor with antibiotics and a lot of other stuff to take. She told me to stay home from work until: FRIDAY!! I was thinking that this was probably a little bit exaggerated but when I look back to it: it wasn’t!
Some symptoms I had during my “revalidation”:
- Burning feeling
- A lot of Itching
- Muscle pain
- Unable to completely move right arm
- Unbearable pain when trying to type :-(
- Unbearable pain when trying to use the mouse :-(
