Hi all. Haven’t been on for awhile. I had the flu in March (2 weeks of aches, headaches, fever, fatigue and a cold). I prayed everyday that I wouldn’t get another virus that hit the inner ear like I did in 2009 (lasting for 8 months). Back to normal routine, went to see parents in Florida, came back and a week later, went for my usual acupuncture treatment. I’d been exposed to a few sick students who were coughing and sneezing during their lessons. Ironically, the acup doc seemed to have a cold. He proceeded to blow his nose into a tissue, then turned around and started putting the needles in, without hand sanitizing or washing his hands. The next day, I started with a wet cough, and it was downhill after that – fever for days, aches, headache, nausea, fatigue and sinus infection. So far, I’ve been ok with the inner ear, although sometimes I feel a little off. Been taking antiobiotics and cough supressant.
Do you think it’s possible the acup doc transmitted whatever he had to me? Just wondering if I’m being paranoid. :roll:
