Is something going around?

Has anyone had what is going around out here?? I have had it since last Sat. I guess my immune system is down.

It starts out with a sore throat and then a deep deep cough and then my ears hurt. This is the fourth day of this. My neighbour had it for 3 weeks and then it came back.

You bet!!! That's what I had this past week, and it happened exactly like yours. My brother is the one that brought it into the house, so he is victim #1. Steve, my DH, is victim #2, I'm victim #3, and Dad is victim #4. My brother got over it, mostly, he used mucinex. Steve has asthma and is on his second wind of it. Me? I still have it a little bit, but mostly just the cough (Oh, I sure hope it doesn't come back on me, I'm still weak from the first go round). Dad seems to have knocked it out, I hope. He's 84, it hit him too hard the first time, I sure hope it doesn't come back to him.

DOVE, GET WELL and kick this for good. Oh, the time before this time, that Steve got sick, the doctor had ordered Cedax (an antibiotic), and Steve wound up in the hosptial anyway. So I took about 3 days of the antibiotic, it did seem to help. So if you feel you need it, do see the doctor and get an antibiotic. Those deep coughs are the worst, I thought I was going to cough my lungs up. hehe

When I had one of the hanger-on coughs, I had to keep a bottle of water with me. Nothing else would quiet the cough. Eventually it subsided. Hope you are better shortly.

I'm drinking Nyquil with a straw. My throat and chest hurt so much from coughing and since I'm in the Nyquil stupor, my knees hurt from banging into furniture.

Dove, it seems that you have got the cold which happens to a lot of people during winter. My advice is not to take antibiotic but to let it run its course. For starters, take Vitamin C tabs and drink plenty of green tea for your immune system. Avoid fried foods and include garlic and ginger as much as possible in your dishes.

Whenever DH or myself got the bug, I would prepare this special brew consisting of garlic, ginger, cinnamon stick with lemon juice and honey being added at the end and drink it many times daily. It worked wonders for us.

I am still coughing a bit, but I was the lucky winner of a 5 day fever too. Stupid thing lasted for a month. Sounds like we all need to stop breathing on each other!

Get well soon guys, and remember to drink your chicken soup.
