Alix, look for body response to vomiting. It has something to do with way the body uses muscles to expel the stomach contents which then stimulates parts of the neurotransmitters in the brain that helps open the airways afterwards.

No antibiotics, as I've fought off the worst of it already. (I am allergic to penicillin and sulfa drugs so we avoid antibiotics whenever possible) I have to check in again to make sure the congestion is still improving. All will be well in time, thanks Frank!

Thanks vitauta. Stupid me getting well enough to go back to work. At least its evenings for the next couple of days, it will be less intense. I hope.

I am allergic to penicillin too... It is nice the alternatives are so expensive.. makes me feel like designer antibiotics.

Glad to hear you've not only survived but improved over the weekend, Alix!

Do tell us, which medication or home remedy worked the best?
