Not much sleep, exhausted.

I didn't get much sleep last night. I went to bed at midnight and mostly tossed and turned. I kept having foot cramps so that kept me from sleeping and then I had 2 coughing attacks as well. I finally fell asleep around 530 and woke up at 1030am due to another coughing attack. I just took more cough syrup and decided to get online and then will probably take a nap to wear off the coughing syrup. Other than that I feel okay not dizzy like i was as I been making sure i drink water. I don't think I'm going to take the prednisone at all today as it makes me dizzy and i hate that feeling. I'll just continue with the zpack medicine and call it good. I go back to work tomorrow so hoping I'm fully better by than.

Foot cramps are painful, you probably need potassium and magnesium.

Maybe you should tell your doctor about the prednisone and that it makes you dizzy.

Hopefully you can rest your body today so that tonight you can get a solid good night's sleep and will be ready to get thru the working day tomorrow. Have you had any chicken soup yet, that might perk you up?

I hope you are better now. It is better for you to boil ginger, and drink it hot when you have night cough. At least you can sleep better.

@Hatley part of it also is my muscles cramp up alot because of my medical conditions. Looks like I'll have to have my boyfriend give me another foot massage and pop those muscles, they work wonders. I do keep bananas on hand also.
