First day back to work 01-04-2005 - 06:45 PM
My first day back was awful. My head started to pound by 10am. Interesting that I didn't have many problems with headaches the week I was off. Wonder if there's something in the building? Anyways, by 2pm the pain was so bad I almost threw up twice. Now, that has NEVER happened. I did take a phenagran and thankfully didn't actually throw up. Although my head did continue to throb most of the day. My wasn't acting much better.

Today was a little better. At least the head felt better.

I did start taking a walk at lunch time to try and up my activity level. I really really needed to start doing something instead of sitting in a chair. I sit in a chair all day, than come home and sit in a chair. I've also started taking the stairs at work, even to go up! Can you say ouch? I am sooooo out of shape. I am going to keep at it though. I hope that I can work thru the pain and in the long run this will help.

Kim, I had a terrible headache just before Christmas and it evolved into the flu---

I hate headaches that make you want to throw up... just the thought of them makes me queasy.

I hope today is better (ask if they changed cleaning supplies - in one office I go to the spray cleaner they use makes me feel awful).

good luck today!

I had the same experience that Cheryl did. I had bad headaches before Christmas, and they turned into a very bad head cold/the flu. Make sure you get lots of rest.

And I hear you on being out of shape. I have some friends who want me to join them running in the morning. First I have to build my stamina up walking a lot more than I am now. Plus the weather is quite cold, I don't like the idea of learning to run in this very cold weather.

Take care,

s, Anne
