So my latest excuse for not keeping up with this blog thing? Been under the weather a wee bit. The evidence (symptoms) strongly suggest that Parvovirus B19 is the culprit. Still have to get the blood test to prove it.
One good thing is that I don't have any of the risk factors that could make this a serious illness. Granted, feeling like I have arthritis in all my joints is not my idea of a good time, but it will eventually go away. It is very painful, uncomfortable, and darned inconvenient, but I don't feel I can really complain too much.
I look at it this way: it could have been something permanent. Now, that would really bite.
