    along with my blocked bile duct and liver inflamation, my Dr tells me today that my blood tests show I've got glandular fever!

    There was me thinking I was being lazy sleeping so much. Turns out I have a good excuse!

    Really fruatrating though as my running was going really well and now I can't even get myself out of bed. Booooooo :-(

    they've no idea at all really. Had two bouts of flu very close to each other over Christmas and that could well have been the start of it. Having gladular fever at 32 is a bit strange as most people have it much younger. Got to have another liver scan to see what the damage is. It seems everything's linked. GF could have caused the bile duct problem etc. Who knows? Just got to wait ANOTHER 2 weeks fora scan to see and keep sleeping in the mean time I guess!

    Good luck Rachel

    I'M convinced, all these things are linked and your body is telling you to ease up on the running for the time being. Now you've got to.
    Speedy recovery hun xx

    i know, its mo body's way of saying 'slow down'. It's so frustrating though! The doctor has warned me if I go back to exercising too soon I could do some serious damage to my vital organs so I'd better listen to him and take it steady.
    Still in bed at 11am on a Saturday. Now that's taking it seriously easy. Breakfast in bed. I could get used to this lol! xx
