@silliegirlie143 so glad you're ok. That is one of my worst fears is falling down the stairs. I have two small flights of stairs to go down to our basement and I'm always terrified I'm gonna fall down them pregnant because I've done it several times not pregnant.
Add me to the sick group. I got home from Illinois late Tuesday night. Was feeling awful most of the time I was there and I blame my mom's smoking around me as the thing that got this started. It's an awful upper respiratory issue.
Just throwing this out there about the hives - my DH has been "allergic to cold" since he was a kid. If his skin gets cold (like when swimming or if exposed in winter) it turns red and swells a little bit just like hives.
This is going to be a pat me on the head and tell me I don't suck haha. My kids have their second tee ball practice today. My husband has a work event and can't go. The practices are very heavy on parent help because the kids are three and four and I just don't know if I have it in me to wrangle them both on my own tonight. I feel terrible not going, Mom guilt is the worst.
@silliegirlie143 that's crazy! I hope you feel better. Didn't you also have a burnt palms incident?!
@Heliumgirl717 This probably isn't the case but thought I'd mention it if for some reason they can't figure out the cause... When I was a teenager I developed some type of contact hives. I believe it was worse in the winter/cold conditions. If I scratched or ran in to something or someone applied too much pressure to my skin I would get a hive in that shape. My friends had fun writing their names and drawing pictures on my arms. It would take awhile for the hive to go away but they always did. Nothing in my diet/environment had changed. I think it only really happened that one year and maybe very sporadically after. Good luck - I hope you can get in to an allergist soon and get some answers!
@alm52386 I would think either way, it's just a virus and needs to run its course (fever or no fever). What makes you so worried about it specifically being RSV as an adult? As far as I'm aware, RSV is really only problematic/scary for kiddos.
