Recovering in Cyprus

At the end of first week in cyprus, i got flu and a throat infection. It took 10 days to go off. Then i got diarrhea and foot pain (tendons are hurting). So basically was taking rest at home for the past 3 weeks. I started to work from home this week only. My mobility is restricted due to the foot pain which is taking its own sweet time to get back to normalcy.

The foot pain was really painful and it kept me awake in the initial days during the night. It was really painful. Now it is better. Doctor wont give me a medicine for it coz it will meddle with diarrhea and aggravate it. He just asked me to give hot water treatment and let tendons relax slowly. He said you never know how long they take to get back to normalcy. I did not have any accident or anything and suddenly after my flu was over, i got this foot pain. strange ..

I did not get to go to Troodos this time. No snow in cyprus this time. Well my passport with canadian work permit will be arriving this weekend mostly. May be in couple of weeks i will be off to Montreal if i get well and recover fully. It will be bye bye Cyprus. Let's see how it goes.

I am in Cyprus since Oct and after 3 weeks my legs started to hurt me, then i was cold all the toime, and pain in my throat, etc. I was getting tiored very quickly. Could not climb 2 floor stairs. I went to the doctor and he said it is a flu. Then i got dihareea, and went to the doctor again. Then he did not give me anything, because he said the flu must go out by itself. And i am in this stage for a month now. Pain in the muscles is almost gone, but i am still afraid to eat anything, because i rush to the toilet. And i still feel cold most of the time. Did you also have this? I am worried. I went to the doctor again 2 days ago, another doctor, and now i have some medicines for dihareea......i hope i will get better....otherwise, i go to my country and seek medical help.
