Ummm...OUCH. I think I pulled a muscle in my left side. It hurts to take a deep breath and it hurts to move a certain way. I've tried like a mad woman to get my house cleaned up and in order today and I did succeed some...but I could've gotten so much more done if my side were not hurting. I don't remember pulling it and it wasn't hurting when I woke up this morning...and I don't even remember at what point it started hurting. I just know it hurts to breathe really deep and REALLY jerks me back up when I try to bend a certain way or something. I babysit my two nieces and my nephew on Mon. but my nephew wasn't here today (he's sick and his Mom has pneumonia)...and my nieces left at around 2:45 because one of them had a doctor's appointment. While I was cleaning, I started freezing...just got cold and couldn't get warm, but I didn't have a fever that I could tell. So when they left I took a hot shower and decided to lay down for an afternoon nap with my toddler. We fell asleep and I slept until around 5:15 (the kids had a 4-H meeting and didn't get home until then and she's STILL asleep). It's HIGHLY unusual for me to take a nap during the day like that...nothing else hurts...I feel fine other than my side and I finally got warm. Dh is totally freaked because he thinks I'm coming down with something. I think I'm still just overtired from the weekend with a pulled muscle in my side. Any suggestions for what I think is a pulled muscle?
