Ths started, really, Tuesday night. By Wednesday I was coughing peristantly and was having chills - and when I took my temperature last night, it was 99.8F - and my normal temp is 97.4F. So, not very good. Advil helped, though.

Now, I'm coughing, um, productively, which is as gross as it sounds, and I can't laugh. I'd rather not talk, either. Riccolas help. So did the egg drop soup I had for lunch. And now I'll make some herbal tea.

I had the flu shot, and this doesn't feel like flu, just a bad cold that settled in my chest. Which - better than my sinuses.

Feel better soon.

I'm sorry. Chest colds are so unpleasant.

My cold remedy is two cups of beef broth with about half a head of peeled whole garlic cloves plunked in and simmered for an hour or two. Remove the garlic (they can be quite tasty spread on crackers, afterwards, though) and drink the broth. I don't know how it helps, but it does for me.

Between helping clear out the crud and being a fairly potent antibiotic, garlic's pretty good stuff. (Not to mention tasty. :)

I'm sorry you're sick....I'm currently on omy third go-round of this crud since January ...just can't seem to shake it. (And I know several other people who are repeaters as well).

I hope you're feeling better soon and make a quick (and permanent) recovery!)

Oh, ick.

I've been drinking peppermint tea like nobody's business.

Hope you feel better soon, and have the opportunity to take it easy.

Hey,

Just a quick note. I use cheyenne pepper on everything when I have a fever. Not only does it help me to sweat it out I increase my fluid intake so that I don't dehydrate. Also, Mucinex DM and Airborne, mostly Mucinex DM.
