Not in a Very Good State! :(

I'm having some serious problems with my head, I've had a severe headache for about 3 weeks with this headache comes quite bad dizziness I feel like I am spinning, it's particularly worse when I close my eyes to try and sleep, also when I move my eyes from one thing to another it take a couple of seconds before my focus adjusts. I'm also feeling very faint, light headed, extremely tired, weak and sick. I also keep getting confused, I repeat things I've already said and the other day I completely forget what I'd done during that day which was quite scary.
People had suggested I got my carbon dioxide levels checked as when CF gets worse you can retain co2 and therefore your body does not get rid of it properly, which gives similar symptoms to what I'm having, but I had the levels checked yesterday and they were completely normal.
I also have developed a cold over the last few days, I'm coughing a lot which doesn't help my headache! I have a sore throat and runny nose, my temperature feels like it is all over the place because one minute I'm freezing, shivering even when in a hoodie, slippers, heating on - then the next I'm sweating.
&Now last night I started to get pains around my heart area, which feel like short stabbing pains which happen about every 3-5 minutes, it's not fun and it's very uncomfortable.

So basically, I'm a walking disaster at the moment! &There is no current solution or an answer as to what is causing these problems.

There is one bit of good news and that is that yesterday I reached my highest weight in 2.5 - 3 years 41.5kgs, I'm the highest weight I've ever been with Josh so he probably doesn't fancy me anymore because I've become a fatty lol!! :P

Thanks for reading, hopefully my next blog will include all the good news that I am fixed!

PS. Thank God for spell-checker because my brain is not working at the moment lol!!

Sorry that you are having these problems,hope that you can sort it out.
Sending out my best wishes and hopes for a quick recovery and return of your equilibrium soon.
Glad to hear your weight is good that is one less thing to worry about.
If things don't improve get to the medics as it sounds like some form of virus(flu?) or infection(labyrinthitis)Check this page http://www.labyrinthitis.org.uk/page3.htm
Please look after yourself and rest if you can:)
