I was coming home from work one day with a box of whoppers I had picked up for the kiddies(heh, heh), well, I really was'nt hungry but I ate some anyway. Now I don't usually eat candy but when and if I get started well you know. Anyway I ate a half a box on the way home. I had worked 15 hrs starting 1:30 a.m. . It took 1 and 1/2 hrs to drive one way and the same back. When I got home that day it was aroud 4 PM. I went to the couch to read my journal when all of a sudden and I mean sudden my whole body started aching. I was shivering. Now it was a 90 degree day. I put on a sweater, sweatpants and got under a comforter with the air con off - I was still shivering. I took a walk around the block with my daughter and thought that might help - nope - I could barely make it. I took my temp it was 104. I thought this was it and made my calls because it came on so fast and I could'nt control it. I wound up in the hospitol for a week - they did'nt know what was going on. My white blood cell count was 24000+ , my sugar was high so they gave me metaphorin. The pain I experienced was unbelievable. When I told the doc I thought it was from the whoppers he laughed and said impossible! All I know is I thought I was gonna die and that I would limit my sugar intake to nill. My leg eventually became the focus as it was inflamed, spotted with pussy bumps, extremely painful therefore difficult to walk on, and swollen to twice the size. What do you think happened?
