I have been in a haze for the past couple of days with bad allergies. Â I’ve been trying lots of things to get them to go away and have had only slight success. Â Warning: I took Mucinex DM on both Friday and Sunday only to find out that I was wide-awake throughout the entire night both times and also felt extremely dizzy, nausea, nervous and had no appetite. Â All of these symptoms are the complete opposite of me usually. Â I never have any trouble eating or sleeping and I couldn’t do either for the life of me. Â I researched it a little and pseudoepinephrine, the decongestant in these medications causes these symptoms. If you’re feeling weird and taking a decongestant, check that out first!
I am now taking herbs and I need to get in for WAY more acupuncture treatments. Â I also went to Fast Med and got a prescription for some a nasal spray that is supposed to work well! Â Wheew
So naturally, I didn’t feel like doing a crazy intense workout, but I knew that I needed something. Â I headed to the gym because outside is off limits for me right now and hopped on the treadmill to complete a hodge podge 3 mile run.
I feel better now that I got out and got a workout in. Â Now the studying for midterms begins.
I am feeling guilty because this little boy is begging to get outside! Â He’s being so good though:)
