All aboard the Crazy Train

This morning I woke up and didn't feel quite right. I barely slept, so I figured that was the reason. As the day continued, so did my illin'. I feel exhausted (beyond sleep deprivation), my skin is itchy (yes, I showered today) and my eyes feel like they have fiberglass in them. So I decided to consult the internet. I typed in "symptoms, tired, itchy skin, itchy eyes." It is now possible that I have one of the following:

1. Hyperthyroidism. Unlikely since another key symptom is weight loss.
2. Vasculitis
3. Hepatitis
4. Sarcoidosis
5. Lyme disease
6. Pregnancy...impossible!
7. Reaction due to military anthrax vaccine.
8. Fybromyalgia

And I only read through 2 of the many, many pages that were listed. Of course now I have myself convinced that I have a cough. The internet is a dangerous thing. Damn you, Al Gore!

This is why I do not allow myself to indulge in WebMD time. I would like to suggest you are having a weather-changing reaction. I get all of those syptoms when the weather changes like this.

Lisa,

Good advice thanks. The weather being a cause didn't even cross my mind.

I think I am still going with the military anthrax vaccine reaction. I think that there is an itchy skin, fiberglass in your eye, maybe coughing so you can sleep medicine out there. If I were your doctor though I would prescribde a double dose of suck it up. Just kidding, hope you feel better.

Aaah...the Q. One of my favorites. Double dose of suck it up taken! I pity the fool who does not have a friend to give advise like you do!

I think itchy eyes is more reliable than a pregnancy test, don't be so quick to doubt the Oracle.
