So a few weeks ago on a Thursday afternoon my throat started to get that sore feeling. Friday, full on sore throat. Took the day off, laid on my couch with fur kiddos and my husband played doctor.
Saturday I felt better, just run down. Sunday felt great except I was starting to have a shortness of breath. Didn’t think much of it cause it wasn’t frequent. Monday, still felt great but the shortness of breath was increasing in frequency. By Tuesday, it was an all out shortness of breath all day long.
I’d catch it then it would be gone again. This was all day long.
I ended up leaving work early to go to the doctor to get checked out. My lungs sounded good. the EKG was good. They decided to do an Albuterol treatment on me.
After that was done, they kept checking in on me to see if it worked. I didn’t feel any immediate effects but to cover all bases they did a chest x-ray on me. That came back clear!
Once the x-rays were done, I started to breathe better. The Albuterol took a bit to kick in on me but if finally did. The doctor prescribed an Albuterol inhaler to use for the next few days.
Needless to say, I didn’t do much working out for the past few weeks. Last weekend in teacher training I sat out of Saturday’s flows but Sunday I was back in action. I still took last week off from working out just to make sure I kicked the upper respiratory infection. I did start doing yoga again, that was AWESOME!!!
This week I finally get back to running and cycling :) Long overdue!!
So what have I been up to while not being able to be active like I usually am?!?!
There really wasn’t too much I could do during this time frame. Walking around the Don Garlits museum was annoying because I had to stop and catch my breath, then use my inhaler. BLAH!!!
I did also had yoga teacher training one weekend and went to Rasa-Lila this past Saturday. Each of those are getting their own separate post. Now that I can actually breath again, I’ll finally be able to move around without having to fight to catch my breath!!
